David brings experience to the role having spent 27 years at NatWest in a number of senior positions, including business development director.
More recently, he has held roles including commercial director at ERE Property and client relationship manager at Progeny Corporate Law.
In his new position at the P2P lender, David will be responsible for sourcing finance facilities – such as secured development finance solutions, commercial mortgages and SME term loans – for clients in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
“We’ve seen a marked increase in commercial property investment across the Yorkshire region in the last year, meaning that confidence is on the rise and borrower appetite remains high,” said David.

“Assetz Capital has shown great desire to support businesses that require funding, but cannot access finance through traditional means, and this is what attracted me to the role.
“I’m looking forward to meeting with developers that have ambitious ideas, but require the capital to execute their plans.”
Damien Druce, director at Assetz Capital, said that David was a great addition to its team in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
“He has spent many years working in the finance industry, and his wealth of experience across a range of sectors means he understands the pressures that different companies face.
“We’re confident that David will have a huge impact on our deal execution in his patch, working closely with SMEs and developers to support investment and business growth.”
