Leading industry figure joins team at BFS

Corporate and commercial banking specialist, Lee Gilmore, has joined the team at BFS as Consultant.

Former Relationship Director at HSBC, Lee, will support the growing business development team, further raising the profile of the business in the North West and identifying new business opportunities with the financial sector.

Tapping in to Lee’s extensive background and experience in the banking industry, he will also provide the team with effective coaching and mentoring whilst supporting the team in making informed investment decisions within the business.

Lee commented: “I intend to utilise my in-depth knowledge of the banking sector to support BFS’s strategy on receiving more referrals from the banking industry. I have constantly been involved in business development with the north west professional sector for over 20 years and it is this experience and depth of contacts that will assist my BFS colleagues with their own business development.”

“It’s a really interesting time in the banking and lending industries where we’re seeing bridging playing a more important role in the economy by permitting asset rich and temporary cash poor individuals to make progress and buy time. By educating the professional sector (banks, accountants, solicitors), bridging can provide a quick and temporary fix for their clients and help them cement their client relationships.”

He added: “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to support a Merseyside headquartered business with a fantastic product offering that has the capability to significantly grow the lending book right across the UK.”

Steve Barber, Managing Director at Bridging Finance Solutions added: “Lee joining the BFS team is a definite coup for us. He is a well-established and recognised figure within the North West banking sector and his experience, contacts and wider understanding will undoubtedly support us in terms of our ambitious future growth plans.”
