F&P Sponsors has appointed Rolly Bakshi (pictured) as head of business development.
Rolly joins from Metro Bank where he worked as a commercial analyst and has also held new business roles at Lloyds and Barclays.
Ivor Freedman, director at F&P Sponsors, said: “Rolly understands the needs of customers in the property sector and can identify where non-traditional lending will be of particular support.
“He is also well positioned to use his wider credit and finance experience in the broad variety of sectors that we work in.”
Rolly Bakshi added: “I was attracted to F&P Sponsors because P2P lending provides a fast and efficient way for businesses to acquire funding in a climate where traditional lending is not always available.”
