Whitehall Capital makes two senior hires
Specialist property financer, Whitehall Capital is surging ahead to become one of the leading bridging names.
The fund, which empowers investors to purchase property quickly, already made waves recently after lending close to £50 million over the past six months. Now, as momentum builds, Whitehall Capital is looking to double its bridging book, starting with two strategic hires.
“We’re delighted to welcome Naseer and Steven to the company”, comments Founder and Managing Director, Anthony Bodenstein. “We’re confident that they will add great value, as we look to expand our bridging business and truly become the specialist lender of choice for investors”.
About Naseer Ahmed
Naseer, pictured above, joins from BridgeHelp, where he was Head of Sales. Notably, he was recognised as the person who converted the most terms issued into valuations.
Naseer has 15 years’ experience in the industry, built up over an eclectic range of lenders. He takes the responsibility of expanding Whitehall Capital’s network of brokers and developers as Commercial Director.
“I’m looking forward to taking on the challenge and helping Whitehall Capital reach the ambitious goal of doubling its books”, comments Naseer. “I’m confident my skills and network will help the fund meet its targets”.
About Steven Kelly
Steven is an experienced professional in the bridging industry, having spent six years working for NatWest where he was promoted to Associate in Origins, Sponsors and Specialist Financing.
Steven has an impressive academic background, passing the notoriously difficult CFA Level 1 first time. He also achieved a first class honours in his Economics degree at Manchester Metropolitan University.
At Whitehall Capital, Steven moves into the role of Vice President. He’ll strengthen the bridging finance division.
“It’s an exciting time to join Whitehall Capital”, says Steven. “Over the past years, the fund has proved its resilience to the world, and it’s fast becoming the dark horse of the industry! I’m looking forward to becoming a part of journey, helping to drive Whitehall Capital to the next level”.
Doubling the books
Expanding the team with leading experts is part of Whitehall Capital’s strategy to achieve rapid growth. Joining the ranks of the major league players, the fund is setting out to become a mainstream lender.
“We have the ambition, we have the investment and we have the right people”, comments Anthony. “Together, we’re looking forward to doubling our books over the next year, providing clients with even more opportunities and services”.
