Charles McDowell to join Hampshire Trust Bank
Hampshire Trust Bank has appointed Charles McDowell as managing director of its specialist mortgages division.


McDowell (pictured) will join from Aldermore Bank where he is currently commercial director of mortgages.

He will take up his new position with Hampshire Trust from October 1 and will sit on the bank’s executive committee, reporting to chief executive Matthew Wyles.

Wyles said: “Charles is a rising star in the mortgage market and I am pleased beyond words that he has agreed to join us.

“Our specialist lending business has massive, untapped potential and I know that Charles will lead the division with energy, flair and skill.

“He will be supported by Alex Upton who has just joined us as sales director – they will be a formidable double act.

“I want Hampshire Trust to be a magnet for the best and brightest talent in the market and Charles’ appointment is testament to that commitment.”

McDowell added: “Matthew and the board of Hampshire Trust have ambitious plans for the business and I am thrilled to be playing such an important role in developing and delivering the bank’s strategy in the specialist lending market.”
