Who We Are


Adapt is a team of just nine, but don’t let the numbers mislead you.

Adapt are one of the most active short term property finance brokers in the UK with solid foundations in both London & Manchester.

Unquestionably unique and refreshingly different, the constant high standards Adapt achieve have been recognised year after year.

Each member of the team has their own individual brand colour, to allow them to stand out on their own, but seamlessly merge with any other, as does our Adapt chameleon, Frank.

Front Title

Mark McBriar
The more you adapt, the more interesting you are - Martha Stewart

Back Title

Mark

The big man, and everyone’s best friend. He will tirelessly look for any opportunity to make a client happy. He is the original ‘people person’ and selflessly shares his time and efforts to make sure everyone’s expectations are not just met, but superseded. Mark created Adapt following a successful period heading a bridging loan company. Whatever the occasion, or season, Mark is easily spotted, always dressed in a jumper of some kind.

Stephen Burns
To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often - Winston Churchill

Back Title

Stephen

Stephen is affectionately known as the angriest man in the bridging industry, but don’t for one second think that’s for the wrong reasons. Wearing his heart very much on his sleeve (he has a tattoo for that too) he will, and does, fight every client’s battle to reach a satisfactory conclusion. Never one for apologies, but gracefully disappearing when the need arises. Stephens 25 years as an award winning estate agent adds something a little unique to the team.

Jordan McBriar

Jordan McBriar
The measure of intelligence is the ability to change - Albert Einstein

Jordan

Jordan

If you’ve met Jordan, then we need not write more. A genuinely nice guy who delivers what he promises. Heard it all before – just ask anyone who has dealt with him. Jordan is Marks eldest son and has built on his fathers’ solid mortgage foundations and Stephens considerable property experience. This has created the driving force behind the future of Adapt… If you are dealing with Jordan, then you are not only in capable hands but also in extremely likeable ones.

Danielle Beswick

Danielle Beswick
Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change - Stephen Hawking

Danielle

Danielle

Danielle is Adapts rock - not big, lumpy and dull, but the one who keeps all the Adapt plates spinning, administering our cases with fine precision. She goes through more ink than you can shake a stick at, coordinating all the paperwork most others shy away from. Someone has to do it, but Danielle actually enjoys it! Loyal and dependable, Danielle is the one many don’t see, but her presence is never far away from the sharp end.

Graham Ball

Graham Ball
Adapt or perish, now as ever, is natures inexorable imperative - HG Wells

Back Title

Graham

Graham adds another dimension to the Adapt team. A banker for far more years than he chooses to admit, with a recent spell in the legal world, specialising in private wealth. Amongst many things, he has an understanding and appreciation of the lenders perspective, which helps our packaging and risk analysis to be constantly accurate, relevant and user friendly. His experience fits superbly into the Adapt jigsaw, where he looks after company ‘stuff’, our service levels, stability and expansion.

Luis McBriar

Luis McBriar
Those who say it can not be done, should not interrupt those doing it - Chinese Proverb

Luis

Luis

The youngest son of the McBriar trilogy. In his heart, Luis aspires towards a political career, but for now we will fight to keep him, as he forms an important and integral part of the team we are proud of. He’s as sharp as a knife and shows all the attributes needed to succeed. Not always a typical 9 to 5 but he is working on that, more often than not on a beach whilst blogging furiously for your edification.

Carl Lowe

Carl Lowe
You can never go wrong when you a great team to work with - Kubra Sait

Carl

Carl

Carl adds a wealth of varied experience and formal qualifications, which fits perfectly in the adapt team. With a full understanding of the vast array of financial products, Carl is alike a human computer - handy when looking for the best option for our clients. His detailed and pragmatic case handling and highest level of client care ensures his service is constantly nothing short of exemplary, time and time again.

Frank

Frank Chameleon
You can't build an adaptable organisation without adaptable people - Gary Hamel

Back Title

Frank

Frank is the Adapt mascot and oh so much more. By being cool, calm and his ability to adapt to almost any situation which may present itself. He sets the achievement bar quite high for all of us to follow. His use of colour, combined with his ever-changing appearance, constantly keeps the rest of us on our toes. Frank represents the soul of Adapt, and just like him, we can all adapt and change to suit any business scenario.

Corrado

Corrado Vulpio
Adaptability is about the powerful difference between adapting to cope and adapting to win - Max McKeown

Corrado

Corrado

With 30 years banking experience under his belt, the last 15 dedicated to the real estate sector, Corrado brings a great blend of knowledge to the team and he is hugely passionate about providing fantastic service to his clients. Much of his experience lies in risk analysis, structuring and funding of property development transactions and he fully understands the lenders perspective.
