Tuscan welcomes new regional sales director

Tuscan Capital, the short-term property finance specialist, has appointed Katie Wilsher-Garratt (pictured above) as its newest regional sales director, covering the home counties.

Katie will be responsible for developing existing and new broker relationships across the region, helping firms to identify short-term finance opportunities and to help them develop their propositions in this area. 

With over 20 years’ experience in the financial services industry, Katie has worked for several lenders including Money Partners, GE Money, Link Lending, Link Loans, Shawbrook Bank and Focused Lending.

She joins Tuscan Capital from Central and Mercantile Trust where she was most recently head of intermediary sales. 

Reporting to Tuscan’s sales director, Jaxon Stevens, Katie joins the wider sales team which also covers regional offices in both Manchester and Birmingham, in addition to the head office in London. 

Jaxon commented: “When I joined Tuscan last year we wanted to restructure the sales team, broaden its geographical remit, and bring on board quality people to help drive our focus on broker education and the resources and support we can offer them.

“I’m very pleased to be able to welcome Katie to the Tuscan team where I know she will provide our partners with quality input and be there to help them develop their propositions and take advantage of the growing opportunity that exists in this sector.

“Katie has a vast amount of experience in this space and I’m sure all those firms she deals with across the home counties region, will feel the benefit of working with her.”

Katie added: “Tuscan has a strong reputation in this sector and I’m very pleased to be joining a business which has big ambitions for its own future, and that of supporting all those who work in, or need, short-term finance.

“Service excellence is very important to me and has been a core part of my previous roles in this industry, helping brokers and advisers with their cases, and ensuring the process is as smooth as possible for them.

“The team at Tuscan have already been very welcoming, and I’m looking forward to working together with them, and the firms in my region, to ensure they have everything they need to develop excellent short-term finance.”
