MSP Capital strengthens entrepreneurship and flexibility with four new promotions

Chris Wright, Lee Merrifield, Chris Sheppard and Nicky Hollamby, Associate Directors at MSP Capital.

Property finance specialist MSP Capital has promoted four long-standing team members to newly created Associate Director roles.

As well as recognising the commitment of the individuals, the move is designed to strengthen the 42-year-old lender’s strategic goals and enhance its flexibility, responsiveness, and entrepreneurship in the market.

The four appointees have extensive experience across the firm’s activities in finance, credit, underwriting, and valuation.

Chartered accountant Nicky Hollamby, Associate Director of Finance, was previously an Auditor at Grant Thornton where she worked with clients ranging from small owner-managed businesses to PLCs.

    In her new role, Nicky will oversee the firm’s financial operations including a strategic enhancement of the capital structure that provides certainty of funds for lending activities.

    Also stepping up are Chartered Bankers Lee Merrifield and Chris Sheppard, both have worked extensively with real estate clients of the bank, gaining in-depth experience of both the residential and commercial property sectors.

    Lee now moves from the post of Underwriting and Credit Manager to become Associate Director of Credit.

    Chris, a member of MSP Capital’s Underwriting and Business Development team since 2016, is the firm’s new Associate Director of Underwriting.

    A Chartered Surveyor since 2010, Chris Wright becomes Associate Director of Valuation, tasked with identifying growth areas in the property industry.

    MSP Capital’s Managing Director Martin Higgins said: “Many congratulations to all four of our new Associate Directors.

    “Each of them is an experienced, talented, and dedicated professional who has proven their ability to achieve the best outcomes for our clients time and time again.

    “Their appointments and enhanced leadership responsibilities reflect our desire to drive the business forward strategically and strengthen our position as the lender of choice for development and bridging finance.”
