I already have experience in bridging and found this form of lending incredibly interesting. This new role at BFS offers an exciting new challenge and I look forward to being part of a dynamic and driven company that is undoubtedly making waves in the sector.”
Working as part of Head of Underwriting Rachel Davies’s team, Rachel added: “Calli brings a strong, existing understanding of bridging to her new role. Initially, she will focus on straightforward residential bridging but is keen to look at more complex development deals moving forward, which is an area where we are seeing considerable growth”.
“Calli has a vast knowledge of the wider financial industry and has a passion for lending and the complexities that that involves. We believe she will be a huge asset to the business and we look forward to her working with the team!”
