Meet the Team – Dawn Trustam

Dawn TrustamName: Dawn Trustam

What area do you specialise in? Bridging Finance

How long have you worked for Ashley Finance? Just over three months. I’ve taken on the position of Regional Sales Director for the south.

How long have you worked in the industry? More than 20 years

What is the best thing about your job? Every day is completely different. You have to learn to adapt to the challenges as you never know what is around the corner!

What type of deals do you like working on? It seems the deals I have had the pleasure to look at since joining Ashley are definitely testing the boundaries, which I love! A few have even surprised me. Don’t get me wrong, we all love a straight forward enquiry, but I also love a challenge! I get to see the best of both worlds really. 

What do you think sets Ashley Finance apart from the other lenders? Our ability to think outside the box. At Ashley we look at each case on its own merit and really do consider a wide range of deals. This flexible approach is great for my broker network.

What are your predictions for the finance industry in 2018? I think there are lots of of hills to climb this year, with the likes of Brexit, and just generally the UK economy.  We will probably need to be adaptable this year to support the changing projects people will be looking to finance.  I think there will be more refurbishment cases, with developers looking to sell property on rather than keep them within a portfolio.

Tell us something we wouldn’t know about you? I was training to be a Muay Thai kickboxer.
