Fluent Money Group creates bridging division
Fluent Money Group has created a bridging division, Fluent Bridging Ltd, and appointed John Hardman as managing director of the new arm.
Hardman has 30 years’ experience in the finance and banking industry; he will lead a team of experts at Fluent Group to grow the bridging division.
Kevin Hindley, chief executive of Fluent Money Group, said: “At a senior level we took the strategic decision to expand and develop into the bridging market because it complements our existing offering and solidifies our position as one of the leading mortgage brokers in the UK.
“We’re pleased to welcome John to the team and look forward to him working with our highly professional and regulated lender partners to deliver a high-quality product and service.”
Hardman added: “Each member of the Fluent senior management has real pedigree and a track record of success so it’s an honour to be asked to join the group and build the short-term property finance arm.
“The whole team have clearly demonstrated a hunger and desire to be the very best in each sector of lending they become involved in, they have a will to win and a clear strategy to achieve success whilst putting their clients and lender relationships first.
“My first role will be to embark upon a swift recruitment drive, targeting high calibre, experienced individuals who will steer clients and brokers calmly through what can be a stressful process, providing sound advice and guidance as they go.”
