LendInvest’s best-in-class Business Development team are experienced market professionals, that will provide you with the best service and turnaround time in the short-term mortgage market. This week we caught up with Michael, who is part of the sales team to find out more!

Hi Michael, welcome to the interview! Let’s start by hearing about your experience prior to joining the LendInvest team?
Prior to joining LendInvest I worked for the largest non-traditional mortgage lending provider in South Africa. For almost 10 years I oversaw the operations of the Bridging Finance division.

Tell us a little bit about your new role, and how you came to work at LendInvest?
In my quest to find greener pastures, on my arrival in London LendInvest was the first company I started working with. Through hard work and dedication I was soon offered my current role as Business Development Manager. My role is to build and maintain relationships with business introducers and borrowers.

What challenges are you looking forward to tackling at LendInvest?
To continue building on new and existing relationships with business introducers.

Morning coffee?
Yes please, 2 sugars.

Top 3 desktop tools you can’t live without?
Pen, Highlighter and Calculator

Haha, how traditional! What tabs have you got open on your browser right now?
Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Maps, Land Registry……… and a few sports pages

What will the next big thing on the internet be?
If you find me cruising the Caribbean on my private yacht you’ll know I’ve found the answer.

…and the next big thing in finance?

Good answer!
Favourite secret place in London?
Whilst jogging through our local park I discovered a lookout point that gives a decent 360 degree view of London.

But you can’t tell us where?! And finally, do you have a claim to fame? 
I was invited to the 2013 Barbarians reception dinner where I got to socialise with a bunch of international rugby players, as a avid rugby fan the evening was a definite highlight.
