Mint Bridging has created the new role of Head of Lending for Richard Showman. Richard was previously Head of Underwriting, a position which he held since joining Mint in September 2015. He has previously worked in a variety of senior financial services and property related roles in a career which dates back to 1990, and he is also a Chartered Surveyor.

He will continue to play a significant part in day to day decision-making for new lending opportunities, alongside being more involved in overseeing the management of the company’s loan book.

Commenting on the promotion Mint’s Managing Director, Andrew Lazare, said:

“Richard has been at the centre of our lending management for over 3 years and our recent success could not have occurred without his considerable commitment, care and expertise. I am delighted that we have been able to reward his hard work with this newly created position, and I am confident that he will be at the heart of the success of our business for many years to come.”
