Trevor Melly is our new Lending Manager and the latest addition to our senior team.

He brings a wealth of banking and property finance experience to the role, having previously been a Mortgage Underwriter with Bank of Ireland and an Account Relationship Manager in the Corporate Real Estate Team at Mizrahi Tefahot Bank.

The Signature Private Finance interim CEO Tony Gilbertson, thinks Trevor is the right man for the job:

“This is another great appointment, which strengthens our team considerably. Trevor combines strong analytical skills with sound judgement and a pragmatic approach to underwriting applications, within our approved lending mandate.

“Trevor has great experience of the property finance sector and will help us analyse loan applications, so we can make informed lending decisions – we always look for ways to lend, not reasons to turn deals away.

“Despite our unique offering and market-leading bridging rates, a business like Signature relies on exceptional service to stand out from the crowd. And that service is built on the skills and understanding of people like Trevor, who I’m pleased to say reflects the quality of individual Signature is able to attract.”

Trevor is happy to be joining our growing team:

“I’m responsible for assessing and approving property finance applications. The role is to help meet growing demand for finance applications from both new investors and seasoned property professionals.

“I was attracted not only by Signature’s ambition and determination to grow the business, but the obvious potential within their clearly defined market. We work with property investors and finance brokers at time when access to traditional funding sources remains difficult.

“The success of Signature to this point has been built on low rates, high LTVs and a fast personal service. I’m confident my drive and experience will help Signature complete more loans, more quickly with an even more efficient, yet flexible service.

“We are shaping our service to meet our predicted future growth, not just the current demands. I’m clearly joining a firm set to become a major player in the property finance sector and I see good times ahead.”
