Mark’s impressive core skill set in banking and finance has made him a perfect fit for our network and we are delighted to welcome him onboard.

Mark has a notable background working across all aspects of commercial and property finance with a long career at Barclays Bank as Business Development Director followed by several years with Handelsbanken as a Branch Manager.  More recently Mark then moved into the dedicated property secured lending space leading origination at Assetz Capital as National Commercial Director before going on to establish his own independent broker business Standout Capital Solutions.  This blend of high street big bank commercial, rounded with first-hand experience in the specialist property finance industry, ensures that Mark is especially well equipped to provide first class support to a broad range of clients.

To ensure immediate access to a full suite of solutions for his clients, however, Mark recognised the value add in finding the right network. The ‘Broker in the Box’ package that Synergy Commercial Finance offers appeared to tick all the boxes and presented as ideally suited to experienced finance professionals with a strong technical background.

After much research, discussion, and calls with Wendy and Piotr, Mark was confident that Synergy was the right choice for his business. The warm welcome from head office was the icing on the cake.  With a large network of lenders, a wide range of products to choose from and a compliance team on hand to ensure that all regulations are met.  The best of all worlds able to operate a truly independent, flexible and dynamic business yet with all the background support and advantages that can come from being part of a large professional organisation.

Mark is looking forward to building new business relationships in 2023 and beyond, having been reconnecting with old clients and gathering new clients through positive recommendations. He is delighted to have access to a full palette of financial solutions that cannot be matched by any one institution. With his experience and expertise, there is no doubt that Mark will be able to provide a unique and valuable service to his clients.

Mark Standley is an experienced finance professional and with his knowledge and drive is welcomed as a great asset to the Synergy network. We look forward to seeing his business grow and flourish. Welcome aboard, Mark!
