Shawbrook appoints new lending manager

He will be responsible for underwriting Shawbrook’s short-term loan deals intended for the acquisition of commercial properties, as well as the purchase and refurbishment of buy-to-let properties.

Day-to-day he will be liaising with key business partners including brokers, surveyors and solicitors, helping to manage cases through to completion.

Kynan started his career in financial services as a mortgage and insurance broker in the regulated residential mortgage sector, moving onto roles as a mortgage adviser for high street lenders. He joined Shawbrook in November 2013, dealing with the short-term loan portfolio for the bank’s post-completion team.

Commenting, Kynan said: “Having managed our client base and seen first-hand the results of our clients’ projects post-completion, I am looking forward to reviewing the new proposals and applications coming through. I hope to stretch and challenge our existing policy and be involved with the evolution and continued success of our STL offering in the future.”

Karen Bennett, sales and marketing director for commercial mortgages, said: “Bringing Kynan’s experience of the post-completion side of the business to the STL team will add a new dynamic to the desk. The team is highly experienced and this new perspective will only strengthen our offering to our brokers.”
