This appointment is aimed at further extending its commercial offering and follows the rebranding from All Types of Mortgages (AToM) to Impact Specialist Finance in January.
Smith (pictured) will be responsible for the development of Impact’s commercial lending programme and brings with him over 40 years of financial services experience.
Dale Jannels, managing director at Impact Specialist Finance, said: “Commercial finance is an area which requires expertise, strong relationships and experience, important attributes which Clive will undoubtedly bring to the team.
“His strong corporate and commercial background will prove to be a huge asset in bolstering our overall specialist lending offering.”
Smith added: “Impact is embarking on an exciting journey which really appealed to me and, on a personal level, it feels like the perfect time for a new challenge.
“Demand for a variety of specialist lending solutions is on the rise and I’m looking forward to working closely with lenders, brokers and the existing team at Impact to assist even more clients in achieving their commercial property aims.”
