Three new hires for Together
Specialist lender Together has appointed three new business development managers as part of its "ambitious growth plans".

Kitt Makwana, Paula Dowson and Chris Timms (pictured) will cover London, the North East and the Midlands respectively.

Timms, who joins from Natwest and has previously held roles at Which? and London and Country, said: “I’m excited to be joining Together as it continues to grow and will be building relationships with brokers throughout the Midlands to develop their understanding of what we can offer. Together’s approach to lending decisions allows us to problem solve, and having worked as a broker myself, I know how important that is.”

Makwana previously worked at Barclays for 13 years while Dowson joins following 10 years at Northern Rock and Virgin Money.

Richard Tugwell, Together’s group intermediary relationship director, said: “As we continue with our ambitious growth plans, we want to substantially grow our UK presence so that brokers and packagers across the country have an experienced Together representative on hand locally for them. Our new business development managers bring with them over 40 years of combined industry experience and will be a great asset to our growing team.”

In June the lender announced partnerships with Instrinsic, Tenet Group, HL Partnership (HLP) and The Right Mortgage & Protection Network.

Speaking at the time of the announcement Pete Ball, the group’s personal finance CEO, called the move “a natural next step” for the lender and added: “We’re looking forward to working with more brokers across the UK as a result, and offering our first charge mortgages and common sense approach to their customers”.
