The promotion recognises the significant contribution Katie has made to the business since she joined as a Business Development Manager in 2021.
In 2022 alone Katie secured more than £8 million worth of loans for brokers throughout England and Wales.
In her newly created role, she will now lead Bridge Help’s team of Business Development Managers in growing the company’s loan book which it aims to double in 2023.
Chris Sellars, CEO and General Counsel of Bridge Help said: “Katie has built some amazing relationships across the industry, all whilst taking on additional responsibilities within the company. Her appointment is integral to our growth plans for next year and she is absolutely the right person for this role.”
Katie added: “I am thrilled to take on this exciting role. One of the many reasons I joined Bridge Help was the opportunity to grow my career and skillset within the business.”
Katie joined the bridging finance sector from the transport and logistics sector having previously
worked within financial services for a large, chartered accountancy firm in London. Her appointment at Bridge Help signalled her return to the financial services sector, which she describes as her ‘first love’.
To further support the firm’s ambitious growth plans, at the end of last year, Bridge Help joined NACFB, the largest trade association for commercial finance brokers in the UK.
Bridge Help will now work with the Association, supporting its charter to provide products, services and support to NACFB financial broker members.
Established in 1992, the NACFB partners with members to foster professional expertise and embrace high industry and regulatory standards, including engagement with stakeholders, to support businesses within the sector.
