Paragon appoints relationship director
Paragon Bank has appointed Rebecca Murphy (pictured) as relationship director.
Murphy joins from LendInvest where she spent five years working across both investor relations, and then portfolio and relationship management. She has also spent time at Goldman Sachs in prime brokerage sales.
Murphy will be based in the development finance team’s Gracechurch Street head office in London.
Robert Orr, managing director of Paragon Bank, said: “Bringing somebody in with Murphy’s experience, particularly in client management, will really support the business in growing its loan book and supporting both new and existing clients.
“Despite the challenges coronavirus presented to the sector we have remained active and, looking forward, we are confident in the prospects for the market.
“The demand for new housing looks like it will remain strong into the future and smaller developers want to work with a bank that is consistent, is financially strong and has the experience and expertise to support their business.”
Murphy added: “I am excited to be working in such a successful and professional team and it is fantastic to be representing the growing number of females furthering their careers in this sector.
“I am also looking forward to utilising both my experience and the teams’ knowledge to help Paragon and our developer clients meet their growth plans.”
