Tuscan Capital hires regional sales director

Short-term property finance specialist Tuscan Capital has appointed Rebecca Salt (pictured) as its new regional sales director for the Midlands.

Salt will be based in the Birmingham office, working closely with firms, advisers, and brokers across the region to support clients needing short-term finance products.

Salt brings more than a decade of experience in commercial finance, having begun her career at Aldermore Bank, then moving to Bibby Financial Services where she spent two years in Chicago on an international assignment. She returned to the UK in 2020 and was most recently part of the bridging market team at Stream Bank.

Her appointment is part of a broader restructuring of Tuscan Capital’s sales team, which also saw the recent naming of Katie Wilsher-Garratt as regional sales director for the home counties.

Last month, Tuscan introduced a new refurbishment facility to its financial product line, offering up to 100% of build costs and 70% of purchase price funding, starting at 0.48% per month above the bank base rate.

Jaxon Stevens, sales director at Tuscan Capital, noted the strategic importance of the Midlands region due to significant local development and growing business relationships.

“It requires someone with vast experience and a very high skillset that can help us deliver for advisers and their clients,” Stevens said. “We are therefore very pleased to announce Rebecca’s appointment as she has those qualities, and more.

“She is already very well-known and well-versed in the Midlands, and I’m sure she will be of considerable benefit to all those she deals with, as Tuscan grows our sales team and our footprint right across the country.”

Commenting on her new role, Salt stated that joining Tuscan Capital was an exciting opportunity to showcase its strong portfolio of short-term finance products.

“I’m very pleased to be joining Tuscan as its new Midlands’ regional sales director, where I’ll be highlighting not just our product proposition, but our Fast Track process, to advisers and firms who have clients active in the area,” she said.

“There has been a considerable boost to both commercial and residential development in the Midlands recently, and this is set to continue into the future, so I’ll be working with firms to show how Tuscan’s strong range of short-term property finance can meet the needs of landlords and developers, and their ongoing projects.”
