TAB expands sales and investment teams as headcount hits 30



Hertfordshire-based bridging lender TAB has announced it has made two new hires to boost its sales team as well as its property investment arm.

TAB has hired Dave Jackson as a business development manager. He will focus on building relationships with brokers and packagers in northern England.

Before joining TAB, he was a director of a mortgage and commercial finance brokerage and has previously been a BDM for TML and Metro Bank.

Jackson will be based in Grimsby and will be part of the sales team led by sales director Nick Russell.

Duncan Kreeger, CEO and founder of TAB said:

“The sales team under Nick is doing a great job. They’re consistently generating new business, building new relationships with brokers and valuers, maintaining links with existing borrowers, and not only hitting their targets but consistently breaking their records.

That makes investing in the team with hires like Dave a very easy decision to take.”

Dave Jackson, TAB’s new business development director said:

“TAB is doing well. They’re an innovative lender — their variable rate bridging loan has clearly been a hit, for example — which makes them an attractive place to work.

But I was won over to the role by TAB’s commitment to develop a sustainability finance solution and its key values of trust and transparency.

TAB is made up from a diverse group of people who work closely as a team to support and encourage each other. Those values and innovative products make the business stand out from the crowd.

I look forward to working with brokers and developing new business relationships in the bridging and development spaces.”

Dani Netzer joins the property investment side of the business, TAB Property, as investment director.

Netzer will source, appraise, and manage fractional ownership investments — covering commercial, buy to let and developments.

Netzer was previously an associate director and head of lending at Blend and a project manager for property developer, JK Props. He will be based in TAB’s Borehamwood office.

Along with other recent hires, including a software engineer, Jackson and Netzer are set to raise TAB’s headcount to 30, up from 16 last August.

Duncan Kreeger said:

“Dani will be involved in the fractional ownership side of the business, an interesting new product which aims to help people to share the cost, and mitigate the risk, of property ownership.

He’s part of TAB’s bid to democratise property ownership and his role will be to help investors build diversified portfolios.”

Dani Netzer, investment director of TAB said:

“This is an exciting area of TAB that has a lot of potential. We’re going to identify property investments with either long term sustainable rental income or developments where we can add value.

I am passionate about finding projects that will work for our investors.”
