Property and asset consultancy firm Sanderson Weatherall continue to go from strength to strength with the appointment of Heidi Otto in their internationally recognised asset based lending valuation and advisory team.

Heidi brings with her 18 years’ experience in the corporate recovery and business restructuring industry having spent the last 16 years at BDO. She has also benefitted from secondments within the Lloyds Banking Group where she worked in the Business Support Unit and Commercial Finance team.

The move follows a number of important client wins and a further increase in market share for the Sanderson Weatherall team.

Head of Sanderson Weatherall’s asset based lending team Christian Humphreys said, “Heidi brings unique experience to the team with her variety of roles at BDO that supplement the dynamic of the existing team credentials. Heidi’s knowledge and professionalism will be instrumental in ensuring we maintain our leading position in the market.

“No-one can truly know the outcome of the Brexit negotiations and the effect it will have on the markets but we are continuing to see growth in demand for our services and Heidi’s appointment will allow us to meet this increased demand and market share moving forward. Companies are continually looking at new ways to secure funding lines and unlocking cash tied up in assets by way of revolving or term loan facilities is one way to do this.”

Heidi commented on her appointment, “Heidi commented on her appointment, “In my previous role I worked closely with Sanderson Weatherall and I’m pleased to have joined the asset based lending valuation and advisory team. The team continue to grow and have a clear plan for expansion moving forward and I’m really excited to be a part of it, especially with so many opportunities across a wide variety of sectors.”
