Natalie Smethurst Stretton Capital

Stretton Capital’s Director of Risk & Recovery, Natalie Smethurst is leaving the business to pursue a new opportunity within the short term lending sector.

The privately funded short term lender based in Chester recently increased its maximum loan for ground up development finance to £15m and completed a £3.17m bridging loan in just 6 working days during the coronavirus pandemic.

Natalie Smethurst said:

“I have been with Stretton Capital for over 3 years now and have enjoyed being a part of the growth and success we have seen so far.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Stretton but the moment is right for me to move on to the next chapter in my career and the opportunity presented to me was just too good to decline.

I would like to personally thank Mark Harrison for his loyalty and support and I wish the team at Stretton all the very best for the future.”

Mark Harrison, Business Development Director, Stretton Capital said:

As a key member of the senior management team, Natalie has played an integral part in our success, is well known to our loyal band of intermediaries as a consummate professional and she will be missed.

With her work ethic, skills and approachability, I have no doubt that Natalie will be a huge success in her new role and I personally wish her the very best of luck.

For us, it’s business as usual and we will be making some announcements in due course.”
