LendInvest hires second northern business development manager

LendInvest has appointed Sophie Mitchell-Charman as its second business development manager for North England as part of its regional expansion.

She joins from Mint, where she worked as a bridging business development manager. With over 12 years’ financial services experience, Mitchell-Charman has worked as both a broker and a BDM.

Based in York, she will seek to source deals across LendInvest’s full product range, from pre-construction finance to development exit.

The appointment is LendInvest’s third hire outside of London, and second in the North following the recruitment of Peter McDermid as business development manager for Scotland in July 2016 and Damien Druce as a Manchester-based business development manager in November 2016.

Matthew Tooth, chief commercial officer at LendInvest, said: “We’ve seen an increasing  demand in the Northern market. Hiring our first Northern BDM at the end of last year has highlighted the potential within the region, one which Sophie, alongside Damien Druce, is more than equipped to capitalise on.

“Sophie’s breadth of experience as both a BDM and a broker puts her in a brilliant position to cultivate business in an area that is strategically important for our business development plans.”
