Aspen welcomes new underwriters

Aspen Bridging has appointed Katherine Wilson (pictured above) and Aqib Iqbal to its underwriting team.

Katherine joins the lender as an underwriter, arriving from Precise Mortgages, where she worked as a short-term lending processor in the bridging department.

Aqib takes up the position as a graduate underwriter and risk assessor — prior to this, he worked at Latham & Watkins LLP and Cooks LLP.

The two new hires bring Aspen’s overall headcount to more than 20, following the appointment of Ian Miller-Hawes as head of sales, Laura Randall as an underwriter and Jonathan Caddy as a senior IT developer

Jack Coombs, director at Aspen Bridging, said: “To meet the increasing workload throughout this year and beyond, we need to keep adding staff and, as is the case with Aqib and Katherine, we will look to bring in more recent graduates who we educate through our own comprehensive internal programmes to ensure their service is the best in the industry.”
