Mint Bridging promotes Showman to head of lending

Mint Bridging has appointed its head of underwriting, Richard Showman, to the new role of head of lending.

Prior to joining Mint in September 2015, Richard held a variety of senior financial services and property related roles in a career which dates back to 1990.

In his new role, Richard will continue to play a significant part in day to day decision-making for new lending opportunities, alongside being more involved in overseeing the management of the company’s loan book.

 

Mint’s managing director, Andrew Lazare, said: “Richard has been at the centre of our lending management for over three years and our recent success could not have occurred without his considerable commitment, care and expertise. I am delighted that we have been able to reward his hard work with this newly created position, and I am confident that he will be at the heart of the success of our business for many years to come.”

Richard added: “I am incredibly pleased to be able to step up into a new responsibility which has been tailor-made for me. This position gives me exposure to almost every part of the company, particularly delivering growth success in 2019 and the long term.”
