Development lender Iron Bridge hires Martin Gilsenan
Iron Bridge Finance has appointed Martin Gilsenan as its director of sales.

The London based development lender, which provides mezzanine and top-up finance on residential and mixed use development projects as well as bridging finance, says Gilsenan (pictured) will be responsible for developing the group’s “ambitious sales programme.”

He has held a number of senior roles within the specialist lending industry including at Money Partners, GE Money Home Lending and iGroup. Most recently, Gilsenan was sales director at Fortwell Capital – formerly Omni Capital Partners – owned by property developer Christian Candy.

Lance Joseph, chief executive officer at Iron Bridge Finance said: “Martin not only brings to Iron Bridge a wealth of experience, but his high reputation and credibility amongst intermediaries is second-to-none. His skill set will complement our strong and experienced team. We are delighted he has decided to join us and so add his considerable professional weight to our ambitious programme for growth and expansion.”

Gilsenan said joining Iron Bridge is “precisely the next type of business challenge” he was seeking.

He added: “They have built an impressive proposition and I’m hugely looking forward to working with Lance and the team. The need and demand for competitive mezzanine finance has rarely been greater, which, I believe, provides Iron Bridge – the market’s ‘best-kept-secret’ – with a unique opportunity to achieve and exceed its objectives.”
