TFG Capital names new business development executive

TFG Capital has announced the appointment of Joel Brooks (pictured above, right) as a business development executive for the North West.

Joel – who will be based at the bridging lender’s Manchester office – has joined from a well-known commercial brokerage business and brings with him experience of providing property and development finance.

At TFG, Joel will focus on growing the lender’s contacts and business in the North West.

The appointment follows the recent recruitment of Damian Slingsby (centre), who has joined as sales director based at TFG’s Doncaster office.

Damian will be responsible for growing the lender’s business in Yorkshire and the North East.

James Mortimore, founder and director of TFG Capital (left), said that over the last three and a half years, it had worked hard to establish itself as a fast, reliable alternative to traditional funding avenues.

“As specialists in providing property and asset-backed cash flow and bridging finance, we’ve proved [we’re] able [to] fill a gap in the market and, consequently, we’re continuing to grow.

“Damian and Joel are great additions to the TFG team and their knowledge and contacts will help us drive our product offering throughout the UK and Northern Ireland.

“Providing funding to viable businesses – which simply require a more flexible approach to give them the tailored financial solutions they require – is the key to our success.”

TFG provides short- and medium-term loans of between £50,000 and £3m over terms of up to two years and was set up with the aim of plugging the funding gap for businesses seeking expansion, but unable to secure bank support.

Joel felt that joining TFG was a great chance to build on his knowledge of the lending environment and work with an experienced team with a strong track record of putting together bridging and development finance deals.

“I’m looking forward to raising the profile of TFG Capital in the North West and letting more businesses with assets know that there is a professional, fast alternative to mainstream lenders.”
