Financial veteran joins bridging lender



B&C can exclusively reveal that London based financier Montello Bridging Finance, has appointed a new member of their team responsible for business development. 

The new hire, Gary Clark, has over 27 years’ experience working in the financial services industry, most recently as a senior credit manager with bridging finance company Credit & Mercantile. During his career Gary has worked in management roles for a number of financial institutions including Northern Rock, NatWest and Citibank.

Gary will be responsible for Montello’s business development on the deal-flow side of the business. He will work with Montello’s existing intermediary relationships, and forging new relationships to maintain the volume and quality of deal-flow for its loan book.

Commenting on the new recruitment, Christian Faes, Managing Director of Montello, said: “We are delighted to have Gary Clark come on board as a member of our team. We are focussed on attracting the very best staff in the industry, and we are confident that Gary fits the profile very well. We look forward to the valuable contribution that he will make to the growth of our business.


“This is an important hire for us and we were keen to ensure that we were able to hire someone that could help manage the valuable relationships that we have, and forge new ones. We had a number of BDM's from competitor companies come and interview for the role, which we found quite interesting. We obviously have a fairly decent reputation to attract the sort of interest that we did, which was very encouraging."


Gary Clark, new Director of Business Development, added: “I am very pleased to be joining Montello. They have built a great business, and there is a solid platform for Montello to become one of the leading lenders in the country. I am looking forward to being a part of this.”
