REIM Capital have appointed Darius Shekarrizi as Head of Sales
REIM Capital have appointed Darius Shekarrizi as Head of Sales, as they expand their team, as set out in the 2021 roadmap. Darius has 15 years of experience in finance, having spent his most recent years working for Oblix Capital, Octopus Property and Lendco.
He is passionate about building relationships and extremely knowledgeable in the real estate space, having used his expertise to strategically plan and increase transaction volumes across the UK.
Having worked for various Bridging and Development lenders, Darius brings a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of the short-term finance space.
As Head of Sales, Darius is focused on Reim Capital’s relationships and innovating new ways to widen the distribution, without compromising on flexibility, speed, or reliability. He will be responsible for improving our sales function and be part of our expansion plans.
In his role, Shekarrizi will be responsible for building a sales team to allow for an even smoother broker/client experience.
Shekarrizi stated that he believes working with a smaller/medium sized lender allows closer broker relationships which is crucial when dealing with them and their clients.
‘REIM have historically worked on a friends and family basis, however I want to widen their distribution and add key broker firms to the REIM panel, resulting in a greater number of Transactions.’
When discussing what challenges he could face, he said:
‘2020 was a hard year for everyone from a business perspective and in their personal lives, however we are starting to see some improvements and with that in mind, flexibility will be key. We saw many lenders either, pull back or just stop lending altogether last year but REIM continued to lend with certainty which I believe is important when choosing a lender partner for your clients. Relationships are key in our business and meeting people is always the best way to build, and cultivate them, however with all the restrictions in place, this will prove difficult until we are in a more stable position.
Kunal Vaitha, Principal & Co-Founder said ‘we are delighted to have Darius on the team, we believe having a sales lead with enable us to hit our 2021 goals’
