Signature Private Finance appoints business development manager


Following recent appointments to strengthen its reach in the North and Midlands, principal lender Signature Private Finance, has appointed Gary Playle as its new Business Development Manager to support brokers in London and the South.

A former Director of Business Banking with Santander, Playle proved his ability to build and maintain professional relationships with customers and introducers for Fincorp, a role he held for more than four years.

Tony Gilbertson. Signature CEO, said of Playle’s appointment:

“We are performing well in a competitive market and there remains plenty of appetite for our low rates, high LTVs, quick decision process and unrivalled service. So it’s now time to ensure brokers and property professionals right across the country have access to what we have to offer.

“In the past Gary has been responsible for raising the profile of bridging finance with Accountants, Intermediaries, Brokers and customers, which is very much the same role expected of him here at Signature, as we continue to build our reputation in the short-term property finance sector.

“Working closely with our new Sales Manager, Steve Sanderson, Gary will help get our message across to the vibrant market in London and the South. He’s a pro-active individual who has impressed with his positive attitude and a drive for success, so I’m confident he will bring in the business we need to meet our demanding growth targets.”

Signature Private Finance is building a reputation for competitive rates, with a current short-term bridging rate of just 0.45% and an ability to provide access to funds quickly and easily, which gives clients a significant advantage in an increasingly busy property market.

Playle commented:

“This is an exciting move for me. Signature is certainly making a name for itself in the short-term property finance sector and I’m pleased to be part of what appears a bright future.

“The business is ambitious, with a realistic growth strategy based on great products and a personal service, delivered by seasoned professionals. I believe 2017 will be a good year, with a strengthening UK economy delivering great opportunities in the property market and Signature in a position to support brokers as they help their clients achieve positive outcomes to property deals.

“With more traditional sources of finance remaining difficult to access for many property developers and investors, I see no let-up in Signature’s growth surge built on an understanding of every aspect of property development, not just figures on a balance sheet.”
