Property and asset consultancy firm Sanderson Weatherall have annouced the appointment of Chris Brooke, a debt and working capital management specialist, who has joined their market leading asset advisory team. 

 In a move to provide clients with a total asset solution, Chris' appointment enables the award winning firm to deliver accounts receivable collateral review and audit, debtor ledger collect out management and debt advisory consultancy services. This will be in addition to their existing services of inventory, property, plant and machinery valuation, and portfolio management review. 

Chris joins asset based lending specialists Christian Humphreys, partner, and Lee Joyce, associate partner in delivering their service to financial lenders, insolvency practitioners, corporate recovery specialists and private equity houses operating within a range of industry sectors. 

Christian said "Chris has more than 13 years' of experience in the sector and brings with him skills and knowledge than enable us to strengthen our client offering. With Chris on board, we can now deliver a complete asset advisory service, nationwide, which incorporates valuation, advice and management.

“The asset finance market continues to see a robust recovery following the economic downturn and demand for these types of services and products is growing. Companies looking to expand or refinance are increasingly looking at new ways to fund their plans and unlocking cash tied up in assets is one way to do this. Funds secured against assets offer greater flexibility and power to access cash quickly and easily without pressures in approving unsecured lending, making it an increasingly popular choice for businesses.”

Chris, who joins Sanderson Weatherall from BDO, and previously spent seven years at PricewaterhouseCoopers said: “Sanderson Weatherall is now able to provide accounts receivable collateral review and debtor ledger recovery enabling the firm to benefit from the buoyancy in the sector and offer clients a fully integrated suite of asset based lending services.

“The firm’s strong reputation and potential for even further growth within asset based lending advisory and valuation was a real draw for me to join Sanderson Weatherall and I am looking forward to sharing my experience with the team and clients."
