Affirmative continues expansion with new BDM hire
Affirmative have appointed a further BDM, Jade Keval, who adds a vibrant and youthful personality to the Affirmative Team in the North and Midland regions. Jade has worked in the property finance business in the North of England for some time and is the second appointment within a month for Affirmative, with the earlier arrival of Jim Wylie as a BDM recently, who will be concentrating his attention on Scotland and the North of England, with Jade overlapping in the North and covering also the Midlands.
Ian Harrison, Sales Director at Affirmative, said:
“We have been looking for the right additions to our sales force for some time now, and Jade and Jim were just what we were looking for to add in. We may well have another one or two appointments in the short to medium term to complete the recipe for 2016.”
Jade herself is delighted, saying that she has now finally arrived at a firm with width of product in the short term secured loan market, with a product range including traditional first and second mortgages, and with the added attraction of being able to offer serious experience and a reputation for completing fast, reliable and competitive regulated bridging mortgages and development finance.
“There are a lot of lenders who say that they offer this and that, when in fact they do not. These guys offer and then they deliver!”
Eugene Esterkin of Affirmative underlined the growth potential that the Group believe is present in the market:
” We fervently believe that this is a time for considered, careful expansion in all our areas of operation. I remain confident that the right people, with the right products and the right customers are going to succeed in this economy. We are building our teams at Affirmative and whilst we have one Jade already, I could not resist the youthful exuberance and passion for our sector which Jade Keval possesses”.
Jade Esterkin, Affirmative BDM based in London, is delighted with the arrival of her namesake, saying:
“It is as though we have our own “Game of Loans”, with a “Jade of the North” and a “Jade of the South”. I am looking forward to the healthy competition”.
