Catalyst Property Finance makes triple appointment




Catalyst Property Finance has announced three new appointments to its head office team.

The principal lender has recruited James Farge as client relationship manager, Martyn Balsom as credit analyst and Amy Rickman as credit analyst and servicing manager.

The new hires are expected to bolster Catalyst’s business development and credit risk teams.

James joins from Edwards, Martyn from Teacher’s Building Society, while Amy has been recruited from Magellan. 

Chris Fairfax, CEO at Catalyst Property Finance (pictured above), said: “Since our launch in early 2018, our bridging business has grown at an incredible pace. 

“My team and I have been scouring the south coast to find just the right people, Catalyst people, who are both experienced and passionate about property finance.

“James’s role is to work closely with our brokers and customers to originate new lending opportunities.  

“Martyn and Amy both join us with strong experience in underwriting specialist loans. 

“All three have hit the ground running and will help us ensure the very best bridging loan service as we continue to grow our business.”

James commented: “Ever since my first meeting with Chris, it has been evident that this is a business which has huge potential with the backing of an experienced and growing team.” 

Martyn added: “It was a very hard decision for me to leave Teacher’s, however, after meeting with Chris, I felt the opportunity to join Catalyst was one I couldn’t turn down.”

Amy concluded: “Having worked in the finance industry for over seven years, I was ready for a new challenge to develop my career further.

“It is my hope to play an integral role as the lender grows its short-term lending business.”
