Ward joins Together as intermediary project manager
Maeve Ward has been appointed as intermediary project manager at specialist lender Together.

She has over 25 years of experience in financial services and will offer strategic support to Together as it continues its growth across the UK. 

Ward will represent the lender in Wales and review the company’s strategy with its directors. 

She will also support brokers and colleagues and deliver group training presentations, lender days, and media and events in the region. 

Ward joins from Central Trust and Mercantile Trust, where she was commercial director for nearly four years. Prior to that, she was at Shawbrook for nine years, most recently as managing director of residential mortgages. 


‘Feels like coming home’

Ward (pictured) said she was “excited” to take up the role. 

She added: “I’ve known Together for a long, long time and our paths have crossed many times while I’ve worked for competitors. 

“There was a part of me that hoped I would end up working here, it was just a case of when was the right time. I’ve been impressed with all aspects of Together; the heritage, the product suite, and the huge potential and desire for further growth with its intermediary partners.

“I’m excited that I’ll be part of pushing the brand forward at a time when there is an appetite to support mortgage and second charge projects and really looking forward to working with our broker partners to understand future opportunities for growth. 

“Together has aspirational plans to increase its lending and it’s fantastic to have been brought into this new role – it just feels like coming home.” 

Ward will report to Tanya Elmaz, director of intermediary sales. 

Elmaz said: “I’m delighted to welcome Maeve, who comes to us with a wealth of experience and industry knowledge. Her extensive understanding of the regulated specialist market means she is perfectly placed for Together and the intermediary team.” 

Ward’s appointment means that 71% of the group’s intermediary senior leadership team is now made up of women. 

Elmaz added: “Attracting the best talent in the market is key to the success of Together. Maeve’s natural aptitude for products and sales, as well as her tenacious work ethic, will make her a welcome addition to our well-established intermediary sales channel.” 

Last month, the company launched a £150m development securitisation facility for property development lending.
