Glenhawk continues expansion with numerous key hires

Glenhawk, the new leading short-term property finance provider, today made official the latest high-level appointments that will complete its impressive line-up.

Founded by property developer Guy Harrington, the lending group has hired people exclusively from property or financial backgrounds with the backing of their Non-Executive Director Harry Hill, the former Chief Executive of Countrywide and Founder of Rightmove.

“One thing I have learnt from Harry is people with a passion for what they do will deliver” explains Guy, who himself is also a young and established entrepreneur. “We have spent a number of months researching and acquiring the right people both experientially, but more importantly who genuinely understand property finance and the need for speed, transparency and professionalism which will translate to our clients.”

The company has achieved tremendous success since they commenced lending in early 2018, where they were able to capitalise on private capital to rapidly build a pipeline in excess of £30m, including eight new loans closed in the last four weeks.

The latest recruits to join Glenhawk include:

Naeem Tabassum as Finance Director, who holds a PHD in Corporate Governance and previously held Financial Controller positions at Pivot Lending and Lendinvest.

Damani Johnson as Compliance Manager with over seven years compliance related experience gained at alternative lending platform, Oakam Limited.

Gabriella Powles as Head of Marketing who has over 10 years’ property marketing experience in the UK and US, working for high profile clients including Candy & Candy and Blackstone.

Ky Benjamin and Tom Tailby as Underwriters, with Ky joining from Lendinvest and Tom from Masthaven.

Having already achieved substantial growth in an overcrowded sector, Glenhawk’s commitment to deliver a fast but personal, client focused service on a case by case basis is proving to be an attractive proposition to new recruits.

“Fresh eyes and a fresh approach can offer something different in a staid sector that hasn’t changed for decades” Harry Hill adds. “With this highly experienced team now in place, I am very confident Glenhawk is and will continue to set new trends in the industry.”

Based in Mayfair, Glenhawk’s rates start at as little as 0.7% per month and span from £300,000 to £5,000,000. Glenhawk charges no admin or exit fees.
