Sancus hires two new heads of sales

Sancus Lending Group has appointed Melanie Fourie (pictured above) and Jaxon Stevens as head of sales for the North and South, respectively.

Melanie, who will be based in Manchester, will be implementing Sancus’ growth strategy in the North and increasing its presence and offer with supporting infrastructure across the North West and North East, initially by recruiting a business development team of property specialists.

Meanwhile, Jaxon will develop the existing sales team in the South, as well as increase awareness of the lender’s proposition.

With over 20 years of experience, Melanie joins the short-term property lender from Together, where she most recently worked as a national development director/head of affiliates.

Prior to this, she held roles at RateSetter, Funding Circle and Barclays.

Jaxon joins Sancus from Omni Property Finance, where he was a national BDM.

“I am truly excited to join Sancus and help build on the amazing foundations that started offshore and in London,” said Melanie. 

“The company is now building a strong brand and presence right across the UK and Ireland, as well as in its original offshore jurisdictions. 

“I am really looking forward to building a brand new team, harnessing an amazing culture, and having the ability to grow our proposition to meet the needs of clients and businesses right across the board.”

Commenting on LinkedIn, Jaxon added: “I’m really excited to be starting my new role as head of sales for the South at Sancus.

“Over the last three weeks, I have had some fantastic conversations and met with some amazing businesses and people; it’s great to see the specialist lending market so buoyant.

“There are lots of fantastic growth plans being implemented across the sector, and that bodes extremely well for the market.”
