Catalyst welcomes new NED

Catalyst Property Finance has appointed Darren Frias-Robles (pictured above) as a new non-executive director (NED).

In his new role, Darren — who is a highly experienced property and construction professional — will provide strategic advice to the board on construction and development matters. 

He will also deliver training and advice to the company’s new business, credit and servicing teams.

Darren’s NED role at Catalyst will run alongside his existing responsibilities at Whitefox Chartered Surveyors, where he is managing director.

Commenting on his appointment, Darren said: “As Whitefox’s MD, I’ve worked alongside Catalyst for just over four years and I have witnessed first-hand its growth and unique approach to lending. 

“This appointment feels like a natural fit for me and comes at a particularly exciting phase, as Catalyst further expands its development finance offering

“My aim is to add another level of expertise by working closely with Chris [Fairfax, CEO at Catalyst] and his senior management team.”

Chris added: “Darren has a fantastic reputation in the industry and is a go-to expert when it comes to construction.

“This appointment further strengthens our team at a time when we are fully funded and ready to increase our levels of lending. 

“Darren’s experience and pragmatism will ensure that we are being both prudent and solution driven — we are delighted to welcome him on board!”
