Crystal Specialist Finance has appointed Neil Elvish as Business Development Manager for the South East, with an area target to increase completed business to £100m per annum by 2018.

The move, which places an emphasis on managing existing broker contacts and forming new key strategic partnerships, further focuses on building strong profitable relationships to assist all parties in income stream growth. Elvish joins from Select and Protect where he held the role of Business Development Manager for over 10 years.

Damien Druce as Head of Distribution and Development at Crystal Specialist Finance, said: "The importance of the South East market to the financial world can never be understated, and to benefit from its ongoing expansion the right people need to be in place to maximise every opportunity. Neil’s experience, contacts and expertise speaks for itself."

"We face an increasingly complicated and crowded market space so the challenge and rewards of going back to basics and never forgetting this is a people industry is fundamental to success,” added Elvish. "Add to the mixture our combination of exclusive and semi-exclusive products and we have an unrivalled offering."

Tamworth-based Crystal Specialist Finance, which previously operated under the name Crystal Mortgages, operates five distinctive product specialisms for brokers, introducers and networks through its Mortgages, Bridging, Commercial, Development Finance and Second Charge Divisions.

The independent, whole-of-market packager recently announced a £350k development in a new head office, with a plan to create 20 jobs in the next 12 months. It also reported a record first quarter with terms issued on over £213m worth of business from January to March, a full 49% increase on the same period last year.
