Positive Commercial adds BDM to team
Broker Positive Commercial Finance has appointed Simon Parkinson as business development manager.

The appointment marks further expansion for the firm, which has seen a 143% increase in completions since the start of 2017, compared to 2016.

Parkinson (pictured) has over 26 years of banking experience with RBS, with roles including private banking manager, relationship manager and taskforce team manager.

He will work closely with lenders and brokers to manage cases for long-term commercial mortgages for both owner occupiers and landlords, as well as medium and long-term specialist mortgages and business loans.

Parkinson is based in the North West, but will deal with clients around the country.

Director John Waddicker said: “We are delighted to welcome Simon on board and he has really hit the ground running thanks to his extensive network of contacts and his highly relevant skill set. As well as being focused on our existing lender panel, Simon will also be looking to build new relationships and deliver solutions to clients for their development projects.”

Positive is continuing its expansion push and said it expects to make more appointments shortly.

Parkinson’s appointment follows the appointment of Gary Ellis as business development manager in December.
