Moreover, Collins previously worked in the lender’s new business team.

Chris Fairfax, chief executive at Catalyst Property Finance, said: “Over the last few months we have broken records in enquiries, applications and completions.

“To ensure we continue to deliver brilliant customer service, we needed to move quickly and hire talent that could hit the ground running. Both Keehner and Wongand bring great skills and experience that will further bolster our teams.

“Collins has worked with our new business team for over a year and we have been blown-away by her organisation skills; she will continue to support our intermediary contacts and their clients further along in their lending journey.”

Keehner, added: “I joined Catalyst as I have worked with Fairfax before and I know he understands what brokers need from a lender; speaking to brokers it is clear Catalyst have already built a fantastic reputation.

“They are driven to build on this and grow, constantly adapting to changes in the market. It is an exciting time to be joining them.”
