Yorkshire bridging lender makes business development hire

Yorkshire-based bridging financier TFG Capital has appointed Joel Brooks as a business development executive based in the North West.

Brooks (pictured), who previously worked for a North West commercial brokerage business, will be based in its Manchester office. He will focus on further growing TFG Capital’s contacts and business in the North West.

His appointment follows the recent recruitment of Damian Slingsby who joined TFG Capital as sales director, based in its Doncaster office. Slingsby spent over 15 years working in business development and operations roles in the bridging finance and asset based lending market and will be responsible for further growing TFG Capital’s business in Yorkshire and the North East.

“Over the last three and a half years, we’ve worked hard to establish ourselves as a fast, reliable alternative to traditional funding avenues,” said founder and director of TFG Capital, James Mortimore.

“As specialists in providing property and asset backed cash flow and bridging finance, we’ve proved able fill a much-needed gap in the market and, consequently, we’re continuing to grow.

“Damian and Joel are great additions to the TFG team and their knowledge and contacts will help us drive our product offering throughout the UK and Northern Ireland. Providing funding to viable businesses which simply require a more flexible approach to give them the tailored financial solutions they require is the key to our success.”

Brooks added: “This is a great opportunity to build on my knowledge of the lending environment and work with an experienced team with a strong track record of quickly putting together bridging finance and development finance deals.

“I’m looking forward to raising the profile of TFG Capital in the North West and letting more businesses with assets know that there is a professional, fast alternative to mainstream lenders.”
