Silbury makes three senior leadership team appointments

Residential development lender Silbury Finance has strengthened its senior leadership with the appointments of Matt Taylor as chief financial and operating officer (pictured above), Andrew Fairley as head of credit, and Jamie Rahder as head of origination.

Ahead of its ambitions to significantly scale the platform in 2024, the newly created roles formalise the creation of a dedicated credit, portfolio and finance team.

Matt will be responsible for scaling Silbury’s finance and compliance functions to deliver rapid business growth, whilst optimising returns to the firm’s key stakeholders through funding structures. 

Matt was previously CFO at two Oaktree-backed, vertically integrated development and operational businesses, where he was responsible for the delivery of over 17,000 residential beds across UK and Europe and raising over £800m of development and investment finance. 

Andrew will lead the firm’s credit underwriting and portfolio management function, bringing over 25 years of corporate banking and credit risk experience, having previously held senior roles at Paragon Development Finance, Housing Growth Partnership and Lloyds Banking Group. 

Jamie will be leading the origination and execution of Silbury’s lending strategy in the living sector.

Matt commented: “Silbury’s growth has been extremely impressive over the last few years.

“I am excited to work with Gavin and the rest of the team to build on the firm’s strong track record and further enhance its offering.”

Gavin Eustace, CEO at Silbury Finance, added: “These are key senior appointments as we scale the platform.

“Matt, Jamie and Andrew bring a wealth of institutional-level experience from a combined 50 years in senior roles at sector leading organisations.

“I look forward to working closely with them as we accelerate our deployment ambitions and expand our living sector exposure into the PBSA, BTR and co-living sectors.”
