Emily Machin - Head of Specialist Finance

Published 15.01.2021

Hi, I’m Emily Machin, the new Head of Specialist Finance and will be leading the sales team covering bridging finance, second charge loans, semi-commercial and commercial lending for Precise Mortgages and InterBay Commercial.

The creation of a new national team of four Specialist Finance Account Managers dedicated to helping brokers with their most challenging and complex cases is an exciting move by the OSB Group and I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into the role.

The move brings together the products and propositions from two of the UK’s leading specialist lenders, as well as a huge amount of knowledge and years of market know-how and expertise. It means we’ll be perfectly placed to help you service your customers’ ever-changing needs.

We’ll be working closely with the group underwriting and real estate teams to identify new ways we can help you to help more of your customers.

We’ll also be working hard to increase knowledge of our proposition among those of you who may be new to specialist lending, as well as building on our existing relationships across both brands.

I’ve been working in finance for 15 years now and bring a wealth of experience to the role. I began my career as a BDM at Northern Rock/Virgin Money back in 2006, before moving to a national accounts role at TSB in 2014. I joined OSB more than four years ago, initially in a national accounts position to increase our distribution channels before being promoted to head the department.

The growth of specialist lending has been a key feature of the market in the last few years due to an increase in the number of customers falling outside of mainstream lenders’ criteria. It offers real opportunities for new business in the future and my team and I are looking forward to helping you place more of your customers’ cases.
