Assetz Capital appoints new relationship director to growing bridging team
Specialist lender Assetz Capital has appointed a new relationship director to its bridging and intermediaries portfolio as it continues to strengthen its short-term finance offering.
Adam Bluma joins from NatWest, where he served as team leader in real estate finance and spent 11 years working in several personal and commercial banking roles. During his tenure as portfolio manager in real estate finance, credit delivery, Adam approved lending requests for residential and commercial investment and development projects and reviewed customers’ development costs to identify potential risks and solutions.
Adam brings a wealth of experience in customer service and industry knowledge to Assetz Capital, where he will support colleagues and brokers across the UK from his base in the North West. The appointment follows a wave of new hires in the lender’s bridging team this year, including the recruitment of Mehwish Mirza as senior relationship manager and Laleta Buctkuar as relationship director, and the promotion of Colin Mottram from senior relationship manager to relationship director.
Adam Bluma, relationship director – portfolio – bridging and intermediaries at Assetz Capital, said: “Assetz Capital’s ambition drew me to the business, and I’ve felt that ambition in abundance in my first few days with the company. I’m really looking forward to making an impact on the intermediary market with our real-world lending solutions, and helping the team to achieve great results.”
Mark Standley, national commercial director, said: “Adam fulfils a key role in our growing bridging team and shares in our growth ambitions, so we are delighted to welcome him to Assetz Capital. We are seeing a significant increase in short-term finance activity, so his appointment comes at a great time as we target one billion of lending per annum across all our solutions.”
