Chris, our Senior Underwriter talks about the benefits of moving into the bridging sector from a mainstream lender.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

From a business point of view it would be from my first manager who told me to ‘Always under promise and over deliver’
From a personal point of view from my father who was a painter & decorator and it was ‘Measure twice and cut once’!!

What do you love most about what you do?

The best thing about working in Bridging is the ability to structure a deal – coming from a Bank/Building Society one of the biggest frustrations is the ‘tick box or computer says no’ approach to lending that some of those institutions have become known for.

Tell us a surprising or fun fact about you.

I have represented my country (Wales) in a sporting event!
