Glenhawk has appointed Amy Wareham as junior underwriter, joining from LendInvest where she worked as bridging case manager, while West One Loans has expanded its sales team.


Wareham (pictured) will be based in London, reporting to Glenhawk director of lending Nick Hilton.

The lender said it has already agreed a number of multi-million pound loans including a residential acquisition in Central London and a refinancing in the West Midlands to start 2019.

Last year it completed more than £35m of loans and secured a £75m funding line from Shawbrook Bank and Insight Investment in 2018.

Wareham will be responsible for supporting the underwriting team and expediting the enquiry to completion process.

In the past, she worked as client relationship manager at SPF Private Clients and as sales support at Coreco Group.

She has extensive experience dealing with a range of stakeholders as well as structuring and packaging complex development and refurbishment deals.

Guy Harrington, CEO of Glenhawk, said: “Amy is another strong addition to the team and will be integral in assisting in the delivery of our customer-centric strategy.”


West One Loans boosts its sales team

West One Loans has made a series of strategic appointments to its sales team from three major financial institutions.

Kevin Glover joined from NatWest where he worked as a relationship manager within real estate finance.

He will be responsible for extending West One’s presence in the North of England, providing support to brokers and property finance professionals specialising in bridging and development finance.

West One has also strengthened its second charge mortgage sales team with the appointment of Sharon Clarke and Pauline Rylands as relationship managers.

Sharon Clarke joined West One from the Family Building Society where she worked as a roving underwriter.

Clarke will work with specialist second charge mortgage advice firms based in the South and South West of England alongside – and will provide underwriting and training support to key partners.

Pauline Rylands will be managing key second charge mortgage broker relationships across the North of England and Scotland.

She joined West One following a career spanning over 30 years, including with Yorkshire Building Society where she worked as an area manager within the branch network.

Furthermore, Danny Scoltock has moved from the broker support team to become a field-based business development manager, supporting brokers and intermediaries in the East of England.

Sales director Marie Grundy said: “With the continuing growth of the bridging, second charge mortgage and development finance markets – it’s important that we have the right team in place to be able to support our broker partners.

“In Kevin, Sharon, Pauline and Danny, I know we’re bringing in relationship managers that have the experience and in-depth knowledge of the market that will add value to the team and the wider business.”
