Brightstar’s high net worth business, Sirius Property Finance, has continued its strong start by taking on three new team members and moving to larger office premises.
Robert Heywood has joined bringing a wealth of experience gained from roles as both a business development manager for specialist lenders and as a commercial & development finance broker.
Being able to draw on his knowledge from both sides of the lending desk has given Robert the ability to structure complicated lending transactions and an unparalleled list of lending contacts.
Neil Chambers has also joined the Sirius team moving across from Brightstar’s associated regulated mortgage division, Bright Mortgage Services.
Neil has previously worked for London based high net worth brokerages, is one of the top performers within the Brightstar Group and will offer an excellent understanding of the residential mortgage market as well as the investment and development sectors.
Finally, Leoni Alexandrou has joined the business to support the sales team and to offer general administrative back-up within the office. Leoni had a successful career as a teacher before moving into financial services and she provides excellent technical support for the team.
The new additions bring the staff numbers to six and further recruitment is expected through 2017 as the new brand build further market presence.
The growth in Sirius has led to the second office move since the inception of the business and the new premises are located in the heart of the Square Mile at Royal Exchange Avenue.
Sirius director Robert Collins commented “We started this business with the clear intention of recruiting the leading professionals within the London market and I believe the team that we have put together are a match for anyone in the market – and the new offices gives us a great base and scope for more growth in numbers.”
