Sancus Isle of Man has appointed Chris Corkill as business development manager for the Isle of Man, UK and Northern Ireland.

The alternative business lender said that Corkill (pictured) will be responsible for developing relationships and generating business from brokers and borrowers across the UK.

He has over 30 years’ banking experience, most recently as head of corporate and real estate finance for RBS International (Isle of Man) and director of Isle of Man Bank Limited.

“I’m delighted to join such a dynamic business,” Corkill said.

“Although we are all currently facing exceptionally challenging times, I feel there will be even greater demand now for borrowers who offer flexibility, speed of service and a truly bespoke service.

“Sancus addresses the practical obstacles and challenges often experienced by businesses, developers and entrepreneurs in securing funding quickly, enabling them to focus their energies on successfully delivering the next project.”

Sancus (Isle of Man) is part of the Sancus BMS Group, which has provided in excess of £1bn of funding to small- and medium-sized enterprises and entrepreneurs over the past four years.

The business offers asset-backed lending solutions with a particular expertise in bridging and development finance.

“We are delighted that Chris has joined Sancus in the Isle of Man,” said Graham Sheward, managing director of Sancus (Isle of Man).

“He has both deep technical knowledge and practical experience of the lending market and he will be a great addition to the team, I look forward to working with him.”

“The Sancus Group has a strong focus on recruiting experienced professionals with a full and holistic understanding of the industry,” said Andrew Whelan, chief executive of the Sancus Group.

“Chris’s tremendous experience fits that profile perfectly, putting us in a position to respond very rapidly to borrowers and introducers whilst also giving our co-funders confidence in our underwriting capabilities.”

Sancus Group is owned by Aim-listed GLI Finance. GLI’s latest annual results showed that the group narrowed its losses last year thanks to growth in its lending business and an array of cost cuts.
