The firm said that the newly created roles “formalise the creation of a dedicated credit, portfolio and finance team”.
Taylor will oversee scaling Silbury’s finance and compliance functions to “deliver rapid business growth” and optimise returns for stakeholders via “funding structures”.
He was previously CFO of Balance Out Living for around two years and was European CFO for CA Ventures for nearly two years. He was also formerly at Generator, Threesixty Developments and The Student Housing Company.
Fairley will oversee the firm’s credit underwriting and portfolio management. He joins from JLL where he was senior director for loan advisory and restructuring services for over two years.
Prior to that he was senior relationship director at Paragon Development Finance for nearly two years. He has also held senior roles at Housing Growth Partnership and Lloyds Banking Group.
Jamie Rahder has been promoted to origination head and will manage the origination and execution of the firm’s lending strategy in the living sector.
The company was launched in 2021 and has funded projects with a value in excess of £1bn. It offers development funding solutions, typically between £10m to £30m, across the UK living sector, including Build to Sell, Build to Rent, student and purpose built student accommodation (PBSA) and retirement living.
‘A combined 50 years in senior roles’
Gavin Eustace, CEO of Silbury Finance, said: “These are key senior appointments as we scale the platform, enhancing key functions, including risk and compliance, and enabling us to continue delivering a best-in-class service to both existing and prospective borrowers.
“Matt, Jamie and Andrew bring a wealth of institutional-level experience from a combined 50 years in senior roles at sector leading organisations. I look forward to working closely with them as we accelerate our deployment ambitions and expand our living sector exposure into the PBSA, Build to Rent and co-living sectors.”
Taylor added: “Silbury’s growth has been extremely impressive over the last few years, and I have seen the business establish itself as a leading provider of development finance across the living sector, alongside a dynamic mix of institutional, corporate and SME borrowers. I am excited to work with Gavin and the rest of the team to build on the firm’s strong track record and further enhance its offering.”
