“His broad experience is a welcome addition to the senior team as we grow our loan book and expand into new cites and markets in the coming months.”
Florian added: “Fortwell’s rapid growth and recognition over the last few years was a major attraction of the role.
“I’m hopeful that my own experience and knowledge can add value to what is an incredibly ambitious team.”
