Rob Collins returns to Sirius Finance

Rob Collins has rejoined Sirius as a Senior Associate, following a period of living and working in New Zealand. He joined the Brightstar Group in 2012 and was a Director at both Brightstar, from 2014, and later Sirius between 2016 and 2021. Rob has more than 30 years’ of experience in financial services, during which time he has also held the position of Director at the NACFB.

Simon Nichola has also returned to the Brightstar Group as a Senior Associate at Sirius Finance. His experience in property finance spans 20 years and he has previously worked at Brightstar. His specialisms and expertise include buy-to-let, commercial, bridging and development.

William Lloyd-Hayward, Managing Director says: “We are delighted to welcome back Rob & Simon to the Sirius team. Rob was a co-founder of Sirius back in 2016 and was a major contributor to the growth and success of the business before leaving the business to return to New Zealand. He rejoins Sirius with the same deep knowledge and experience that customers and lenders know him for and at an exciting time for our business. The arrival of Rob follows the addition of Simon, who joined us earlier in 2024. We have always prided ourselves on our commitment to best-in-class and these additions are just another example of that.”

Rob Collins says: “I’m delighted to return to Sirius Finance, which is a brokerage I co-founded in 2016. There have been many changes since then, but the firm’s obsession with outstanding service delivered by high-calibre professionals remains. We have a very exciting future ahead of us. It’s good to be back.”

Simon Nichola says: “It is great to be back working with the hardworking and dedicated team at Sirius, at a time where they have just gone through some really exciting changes. In line with our mission to ‘make the seemingly impossible, possible’ I can’t wait to get started on finding solutions for our clients’ needs and building long-lasting relationships.”
