The specialist lender hired former CHL regional development manager Nadine Edwards (pictured, l.) as key account manager and former CHL business development manager (BDM) Katie Cave (pictured, r.) as BDM for London and the South East.
Last month Capital Home Loans confirmed to Mortgage Solutions it had shelved plans to relaunch into the buy-to-let market ‘for the immediate future’ due to market uncertainty following the Brexit vote and the buy-to-let market contraction.
Edwards has 15 years’ banking experience, including previous broker roles, while Cave’s career in finance spans 12 years in the mortgage and intermediary market, having worked for Lloyds Banking Group and Virgin Money.
Edwards said: “The specialist lending sector is thriving and Together has seen significant growth in recent years, so I’m delighted to be joining at such an exciting time.”
Cave added: “I’m really looking forward to growing our network of brokers across South London and the South East as Together continues to expand.”
Together scooped three awards at last week’s British Specialist Lending Awards, including Underwriter, and Business Leader in Bridging and Commercial Finance.
Sales director Gary Bailey said: “Our business development team is expanding rapidly as we continue to roll out our ambitious growth plans. Both Nadine and Katie have a wealth of industry experience, each with a rounded knowledge that spans both the broker and lender side of the business, and we’re delighted to welcome them to Together to provide further support to our growing network of intermediary partners.”
Together also recently appointed Robert Oliver as national business development manager.
The lender has a current loan book of £2bn, with total new lending for 2016 amounting to just less than £1.1bn.
