Avamore Capital promotions

Avamore Capital has announced two senior internal promotions. Chris Newman, former Senior Underwriter, is now Head of Underwriting, taking over from Executive Director, Philip Gould and Adam Butler, previously Senior Relationship Manager is now stepping up to become Head of Sales.

The promotions will play a part in Avamore reaching its ambitious growth targets under the guidance of a high performing management team.

Both Chris and Adam joined Avamore in early 2020, starting at a particularly challenging time for the market.

Since then, they have demonstrated incredible commitment to the success of the business, acting commercially and tenaciously to get deals done in their respective roles.

The promotions come after several positive structural changes at Avamore that will play into the lender’s next phase of growth.

Avamore is a firm that has always looked to promote from within and is dedicated to creating a culture where its people can grow their careers.

D’mitri Zaprzala, Managing Director, Avamore Capital said:

“We are delighted to be sharing these promotions publicly. Chris and Adam have been integral parts of the business and we are glad that we’ve been able to formally recognise their work.

Adam is not only a successful salesperson, but his style means that he is always looking to develop the people around him to be the best they possibly can be.

He has been a leader in all but name and so it is excellent that we are able to give him the Head of Sales position.

Likewise, Chris has been a role model for the whole team in terms of the quality and consistency of work.

He holds himself to an incredibly high standard and that sentiment has naturally spread across the team; he will no doubt continue to build on the infrastructure we have in place and shape an efficient, diligent and customer focused underwriting department.”

Chris Newman, Head of Underwriting commented:

“I have been on an incredible journey at Avamore.

The firm has always encouraged me to stretch my boundaries and given me the space to grow as an underwriter and a manager.

I am genuinely excited that Phil is passing the baton onto me, and I look forward to seeing where I can take the department.”

Adam Butler, Head of Sales said:

“I am extremely proud to be able to step into the Head of Sales role.

The team has collectively tackled a number of challenges since I arrived at Avamore and I have always taken great satisfaction in us all succeeding.

Like most salespeople, we are at the front of the customer experience.

I am looking forward to building on the brand and image we have already created and will work closely with the team to ensure that we will always be a customer focused lender first and foremost.”
