Griffiths will take on the role of client relationship manager and oversee origination of loans, structuring, pricing lending terms and building customer relationships.
He was most recently an account manager at Iceberg, a division of Paragon Bank that provides commercial funding and asset finance to the SME market.
Prior to that he worked at Savills as an agent network manager for nearly six years and before that worked at Health-on-Line in life insurance sales for just under five years.
Catalyst Property Finance’s new business head, James Farge, said: “The recruitment of Lee into the new business team at Catalyst was an easy decision to make. He had previously worked with Sam and Josh, who have established themselves as top performers at Catalyst, and Lee came highly recommended by them both.
“I am looking forward to working closely with Lee as he further enhances our ability to originate quality business, in what is, a very competitive market.”
The lender’s intermediary relationship managers include Josh Hawker, Stuart Heavens, Oliver Jenkins and Andy Keeher.
