Truswell joins Together after a short period at Capital Home Loans, and 21 years as head of national accounts at Virgin Money and Northern Rock. He joins Richard Tugwell, recently-appointed as group intermediary relationship director, who he worked for in his two previous roles.
Together recently announced its partnership with four broker networks, and as head of national accounts Truswell will focus on building intermediary relationships across the group in both the personal finance and commercial businesses as the lender widens its distribution.
Tugwell said: “John’s knowledge of the intermediary market will be invaluable as we strengthen Together’s position in the industry. I’m delighted to have him join us and am looking forward to an exciting phase of growth as we broaden our reach and develop relationships with more brokers across the UK.”
Together has a current loan book in excess of £2bn and total annual new lending for 2016 stood at just under £1.1 bn.
