Dragonfly suspends its relationship manager

MARTIN GILSENAN – RUMOURED TO BE JOINING OMNI

Dragonfly Property Finance has suspended its relationship manager Martin Gilsenan.

Jonathan Samuels, chief executive officer of Dragonfly Property Finance, says: “I can confirm that Martin Gilsenan has been suspended pending further investigation.”

Samuels says he cannot comment further about the suspension but adds it is unrelated to rumours Gilsenan plans to join rival Omni Capital.

Gilsenan joined Dragonfly in September 2010 having previously worked in sales at igroup and as sales director at Money Partners.

A spokesman for Omni says: “I can confirm Omni is in the process of making a senior sales appointment and that the person concerned is from the bridging industry. Details will be announced in due course.”

Colin Sanders, former chief executive officer of Money Partners and GE Money Home Lending, is CEO of Omni.

He has made several appointments since taking the helm at Omni in June 2011.

He appointed Bob Sturges, former director of communications at Money Partners, as Omni’s head of communications in August, along with Jim Nash, former national sales manager at Money Partners, as its sales manager.
