Atelier Capital Partners appoints director of origination

Atelier Capital Partners, who offer bespoke short-term lending solutions to property investors, has appointed Martin Gilsenan as director of origination.

Gilsenan left mezzanine lender Iron Bridge Finance where he was director of sales since 2017.

Atelier Capital Partners launched in January 2020, and Gilsenan’s appointment comes following a recruitment campaign by the lender.

Chris Gardner, founder and chief operating officer at Atelier Capital Partners, said: “Hiring and retaining the best talent is central to our ambitious growth strategy.

“Since launch we’ve assembled a group of highly skilled institutionally trained professionals from across the development and short-term real estate finance sector, and we are now delighted to welcome Martin to the team too. Martin’s pedigree and reputation are second to none, and his expertise will be invaluable as we consolidate our early growth by increasing both our loan book and origination capacity.

“As a degree of normality returns to the market, astute developers will identify opportunities. Whenever and wherever they do, we stand ready to help, with a certainty of execution underpinned by our compelling combination of institutional funding and first-class people.”
