Wyles to exit Castle Trust as Upton promoted to mortgage MD
Executive director at Castle Trust Capital Matthew Wyles has quit the specialist lender leading to the promotion of Alex Upton from sales director to MD mortgages.


Upton will report to Sean Oldfield, group chief executive at Castle Trust.

Wyles is leaving Castle Trust to take up a senior executive appointment in another financial institution, subject to regulatory approval.

Upton joined Castle Trust in 2013 as a broker development manager and was promoted to sales director, mortgages the following year.

Oldfield said: “Alex Upton is a rising star within Castle Trust and I am delighted that she has agreed to lead our mortgage business. Alex and her excellent team will play a pivotal role in realising our current three-year plan which will see us significantly grow our balance sheet during 2018 and beyond.”

Upton said: “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead the mortgage division. Castle Trust has always been a really exciting place to work and is a remarkable business. We have a tremendous opportunity to build something really special on the sound foundations which are already in place. I can’t wait to start.”

Marcus Dussard will succeed Upton as sales director after a promotion from business development director after joining Castle Trust in 2014.

Alex Hammond, the previous head of mortgage marketing at Castle Trust, left in mid-January to start a PR and content firm called Also Communications.
