Specialist short-term lender, Hope Capital, has again bolstered its growing team with the appointment of four new hires across various roles in the business.

All three new recruits will be key in supporting the underwriting team, progressing deals through to completion thus helping to grow and further strengthen the business.
Tom joins Hope Capital as a business development executive and in his role will be one of the main points of contact in regard to any bridging finance applications or questions brokers may have. With over five years’ experience on both broker and lender sides, Tom fully understands the needs of each, making him well placed in being able to find a correct and suitable solution to each case.
Jonathan Sealey, CEO at Hope Capital, said: “It is fantastic to welcome Ryan, Sam, Elizabeth and Tom to our team. This year is all about growth for Hope Capital, so these new appointments are key in driving our plans forward.
“We are experiencing an extremely successful time as a business, with significant growth in enquiries and completions. As a result, by strengthening our underwriting and sales departments, we hope this will result in us achieving even more milestones in the future.”
As part of the Hope Capital’s growth strategy, the firm has also made two internal promotions. Andy Bate who joined the company in June 2021 has progressed from a loan administrator to an underwriter and Emily Crowe, who joined in October 2020 has been promoted to marketing & PR executive.
Jonathan Sealey, added: “As a business, we focus heavily on not just recruiting to grow our company, but also developing from within. During Andy and Emily’s time at Hope Capital, they have both shown complete dedication and commitment to their roles and therefore fully deserve this recognition.”
