Bridge Help expands business development team


Phoebe Sellars Bridge Help

Bridge Help’s latest appointment brings new talent to the male-dominated bridging finance industry.

Phoebe Sellars has been appointed as Business Development and Loan Manager at the Chesterfield-based bridging finance company.

Phoebe brings a background in retail management and law to the brand new role at the company. She was most recently employed in the Wills team at a leading firm of solicitors.

Her interest in and subsequent move to the bridging finance sector has been triggered by her father and chief executive of Bridge Help, Chris Sellars.

Phoebe Sellars explained:

“I was previously working for a legal firm and my role was furloughed during lockdown. During this time, I witnessed the fact that the bridging loan industry didn’t stop.

It was very much business as usual and deals were still being done and no two days were the same. I loved the proactive and flexible approach to working in the face of adversity.

I am a person that likes to be busy and challenged and it was a career move that excited me.”

Within the newly created role, Phoebe will be responsible for building relationships with Bridge Help’s broker and client network as well as managing the company’s loan pipeline.

Phoebe added:

“I am surrounded by an experienced and knowledgeable team, including the bridging industry stalwart Danny Power.

With the business plans we have in place I am excited by what the future holds for both me and Bridge Help.”

Phoebe is one of three new appointments made at the growing firm since the start of the year.

The company also made the move to larger premises last month to accommodate its increasing workforce, all of which is instrumental in achieving Bridge Help’s ambitions to achieve a £100 million loan book by 2024.
