Meet the Team - Sean Crombie

Sean joined Conduit Finance in September 2015 as a Business Development Manager, working closely with our Business Development Director, Mark Reidy, and our Managing Director Jamie Davidson.

He started his career as a professional rugby player aged 19, and studied Business & Economics at the same time.  During his rugby career he played for Aberdeen Grammar, Border Reivers, Edinburgh Rugby and Newcastle Falcons.

He currently plays for Boroughmuir RFC in Edinburgh. 

Sean has worked on building and strengthening our external relationships with both clients and lenders. On a day to day basis he works with developers and landlords across the UK, helping them efficiently acquire and develop residential and commercial properties. 

The completion of a £1.1m property bridge in London in 7 days stands out as a recent success. It was the speed of the completion that was impressive, considering the lender was new to market.  They also didn't require a valuation which helped save time. 

Other recent successes include the debt forgiveness restructuring of an office investment away from Cerberus, and the funding of a residential development project at a 2.5% margin. 

Sean works closely with our research team to quickly release the specifics of any new to market lenders.  He is currently helping borrowers secure competitive stretched senior development funding at high LTC's, and flexible bridging finance from 0.60% pm. 

He is also working with a number of clients who have had their loans sold on to Cerberus, CarVal, Kennedy Wilson and Lone Star. These loans can be quickly and efficiently refinanced away from the loan managers, who are invariably Pepper/Engage Commercial. 

Restructuring is a specialist service Sean and the wider team can provide.

If you require live pricing or want to hear who the new to market lenders are, then please call Sean on 0131 564 0172, or email
