Jude Miranda joins Hampshire from Shawbrook Bank where he held the position of lending manager. Kris Siva was formerly a mortgage adviser at TSB. Robert Mynott previously worked for Metro Bank as a credit manager.
Siva said he left TSB for Hampshire in pursuit of career progression. “The chance to join a reputable organisation that has just established its mortgage division was too good an opportunity to miss,” he said. “We are building a strong underwriting team with a firm focus on customer service.”
Colin Bell, managing director of commercial mortgages at Hampshire Trust Bank, said: “As a former mortgage broker myself, I recognise how important speed and efficiency are in this sector and having a dedicated team of underwriters will enable us to further develop and enhance our service to the intermediary sector.”
Hampshire Trust Bank offers four commercial mortgages products; buy to let and commercial, bridging finance, refurbishment finance and development exit finance, with loan amounts from £100,000 to £10m.
