Assetz Capital expands team with appointment of Midland’s based originator
Specialist marketplace lender Assetz Capital have added to their growing origination team with the appointment of experienced finance professional David Hehir.
David’s appointment follows a raft of recent hires as the lender targets ambitious growth plans for the next few years.
David, based in the West Midlands, joins from Allied Irish Bank (AIB) where he spent the last 9 years growing the Birmingham branch of the business into AIB’s largest centre in the UK. He brings to the role a wealth of experience in property investment, development, healthcare, leisure, and hotels. This follows almost 20 years in a variety of management roles across Scotland, Wales, Southern England, and the Midlands.
David said: “I’m really pleased to be joining Assetz Capital at what is an important time for the business. We share a similar growth ethos, and I have admired their approach for some time, I can’t wait to get started.”
Neil Roper, regional director for UK Midlands said: “David’s experience and connections across the West Midlands, and hunger for deal making, made him an ideal candidate to spearhead our ambitions in the Region and further afield…he embodies what we look for when it comes to growing the team and is a great addition.”
