Signature Property Finance bolsters management team and teases now product

Signature Property Finance has strengthened its management team after appointing Thomas Howells as legal director and promoting Paul Tromans and Trevor Melly to national development director and operations director, respectively.

Thomas joins the company from Insight Law LLP where he worked for four years, most recently as a partner.

Prior to the promotions, Paul was a national development manager at the specialist lender since September 2020, while Trevor has worked as its lending manager since September 2016.

The changes to Signature Property Finance’s management team were made as a first step to overcome the new set of challenges this year might bring.

“We cannot rest on our laurels, despite the great year the whole team delivered last year in what were very tough market conditions,” said Tony Gilbertson, CEO at Signature Property Finance.

“This board contains a huge amount of experience across all the necessary aspects of short-term property finance to not only bring deals together, but to develop new products and services that reflect the changing needs of our clients.

“We have a short decision process for deals and product development — if it works for our clients and gives them a competitive advantage in the market, then we’re prepared to create, develop and release products to market quickly.”

Signature’s first new product is expected to be out later this month. 

“With the vaccines being rolled out and the post-Brexit economy performing better than predicted, we’re optimistic about the property sector in 2021 and will ensure our clients have the tools to take advantage,” he stated.  

David Hughes, finance director at Signature Property Finance, commented: “This enhanced management team spreads the responsibility and makes sure we are agile and more responsive to the demands of our clients.”
