This is the second office that the lender has opened this year and will enable it to expand its lending activities in the North of England.
Chris will serve as a business development manager and joins from Tuscan Capital, where he was national sales manager.
Fiduciam will be relocating some staff from its London head office to Manchester in order to deal with the growing business in the region.
It is also looking to expand the Manchester office by hiring case managers in the area as part of its plans to make 25 new hires this year.
Chris said: “I am eager to build a strong presence for Fiduciam in the North.

“Fiduciam has more flexible funding facilities than most other lenders, allowing it to offer a broader spectrum of bridging solutions.
“Fiduciam’s pipeline of bridging, development and business lending in the North is already strong, and I am looking forward to expanding this still further to help achieve Fiduciam’s ambitious plans for this region.
“There is a lot of demand in the North that is currently not being met so we aim to fill this gap.”
Clint White, head of property lending at Fiduciam, added: “Fiduciam already does a large part of its UK business in the North of England and, therefore, it makes sense to have a local presence in Manchester from where we can better provide this service.
“In Chris Parr we have a really high-calibre person who can drive our Manchester office and help us to achieve our ambitious plans.
“As we intend to double our UK loan book this year and the London real estate market remains subdued, our Manchester office is an important investment and a positive step forward for us, enabling us to better meet the demand that we know is there.”
