Masthaven promotes James Bloom to lead short-term lending
Masthaven has appointed James Bloom as managing director of its short-term lending division.

In the newly created role, Bloom will oversee the bank’s bridging and development finance lending teams.

Bloom was previously managing director of the lender’s development finance team.

Bloom said: “I’m delighted to be leading Masthaven’s short-term lending business – a division that we recently enhanced significantly with a suite of new offerings.

“The new team structure is a reflection of the growth Masthaven is seeing in this sector. These are incredibly exciting times in Masthaven’s evolution and business development and I’m delighted to be an instrumental part of this process.

“I look forward to working with the team, to continue to innovate and meet customer needs,” he added.


Catering for increased broker demand

It comes after Masthaven launched a suite of short-term lending products in September citing higher broker demand for the products.

The range included enhancements to the bank’s bridging proposition through the introduction of standard and prime bridging products, alongside development finance and commercial bridging loans.

Jon Hall, managing director of Masthaven added: With 30 years of experience in property, James’ unique set of skills and deep knowledge of short-term lending are a vital part of the bank’s growth in this sector.

“His new role reflects the significant contribution he made as MD of our development finance division since mid-2016.

“With James leading the lending business and Richard Deacon leading sales I’m fortunate to be working with two of the most experienced and well regarded individuals in the short term lending market.”
