Virgo joins from Interbay Commercial where he was a senior BDM. His previous roles have included the commercial mortgage distribution for Christie Finance and BDM for Natwest Bank.
Matthew Tooth (pictured), chief commercial officer at LendInvest, said: “Andy has an outstanding reputation with both brokers and lenders alike, bringing a wide range of contacts to the role. His extensive experience as both a BDM and broker means he understands how to manage a deal from both sides of the coin, allowing him to anticipate issues before they arrive and identify new opportunities early. We are very excited to have Andy on board as we continue looking to expand our product offering this year and reach more borrowers right across the South of England.”
Virgo said: “I am always looking to break new ground and try something new, so the opportunity to join the team of an established and fast-growing lender like LendInvest that continues to bring excellent new products to a market that truly needs them is an exciting prospect. The demand for finance is certainly there and I am looking forward to getting back out on the road.”
Earlier in the year the lender appointed Mint Bridging’s Sophie Mitchell-Chapman as BDM in the North as a result of increasing demand within the region.
