Zorin hires ex-Funding Circle underwriter

Zorin Finance has announced two new appointments to its lending and business development team.

Colin Chung (pictured above) has been recruited as an associate director in the credit risk team, while Katy Katani (pictured below) has joined as head of business development.

Colin was previously at Funding Circle, where he was a senior property underwriter, and has over 10 years of experience in real estate finance.

He also served for four years in the real estate finance team at Canada Life in London and in the real estate debt restructuring team at Lloyds Bank.

Katy joins from Curtin & Co, where she was business development director and has over 15 years of experience in the real estate industry, including four years at Charles Russell Speechlys as business development manager for the property team.

Luke Townsend, CEO of Zorin Finance, said: “I welcome both Colin and Katy to the business, who both bring extensive industry experience to the company.

“With risk management sitting at the heart of our business, Colin joins a team which continues to expand in line with our lending book.

“In addition, Katy will be an invaluable addition to our team, as we seek to meet our ambitious long-term growth targets as a leading provider of alternative real estate finance.”

Zorin recently exceeded £200m of lending after completing its largest deal to date.
