West One Loans appoints head of collections PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 10 June 2015

Bridging lender West One Loans has appointed Lee Carling to the role of head of collections.

He will report into director Stephen Wasserman and will be responsible for a team of three in the collections and loan management department.

Carling has more than 15 years’ experience in financial services and joins from Dragonfly Property Finance where he spent five years as Servicing Manager.

Prior to that Carling had spells at Moneypartners, The Enterprise Group and igroup in a variety of operational management and underwriting roles.

He joins West One Loans at an exciting juncture, with the short-term finance provider having recently grown its loan book to £200m after completing more than £80m of loans in the first quarter of 2015.

Carling’s appointment comes hot on the heels of Samir Shah joining West One as an underwriter, as the short-term lender continues to bolster its ranks to keep pace with burgeoning business levels.

Stephen Wasserman, director of West One Loans, said:  

“We are always looking to boost our team with the brightest talent around and Lee’s experience and expertise perfectly fits the bill. He has a detailed understanding of the bridging industry and will ensure that all our active loans are effectively managed and that any issues are professionally resolved. Given our stellar start to the year, Lee is joining at a busy time for the business and we are confident that he can help us write the next chapter of our growth story. With short-term finance now proving a viable option for a widening range of borrowers, the sky is the limit for the bridging sector.”

Lee Carling, head of collections at West One Loans, said:

“West One Loans is a household name in the bridging sector and I have long admired its innovative and flexible approach to short-term finance. It is a constantly evolving industry and West One’s manoeuvrability and adaptation to new challenges has allowed it to stay front and centre. It has posted some seriously impressive results in the past few years and I am excited to be joining a lender that is so clearly on the up. I hope my experience will prove to be a valuable asset for the team and that I can continue to learn from further enhance my skill set from the senior management team at West One Loans.”
