David Walsh has joined as commercial underwriting manager and will oversee the commercial broker teams, focusing on bridging, commercial and semi-commercial lending.
Walsh joins from the Accident Credit Group and has more than 15 years’ experience in financial services, including roles at Lloyds Banking Group and Morgan Stanley’s Advantage Home Loans.
Also joining the commercial team is Mareeza Mitri, who takes on the newly-created role of commercial buy-to-let manager. She has over 12 years’ experience in underwriting, and joins from V Loans, where she focused on both residential and buy-to-let second charge mortgages.
Together provides short-term finance, auction finance, residential, commercial and buy-to-let mortgages and secured loans.
Irene Thomas, director of commercial operations at Together, said: “We are expanding the commercial team in order to meet our growth targets and we’re delighted to be welcoming both David and Mareeza. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team that will benefit Together, and our customers, as we move forward, and I’m really excited about the next chapter.”
Walsh added: “It’s a really exciting time at Together as the business continues to grow, and I wanted to be part of that journey. I had worked with the team previously, so was familiar with Together’s products and felt my skills would be an asset to the commercial side of the business.”
Mitri said she has worked with Together on the broker side for over a decade. “The buy-to-let sector continues to perform well and the creation of this new role is testament to Together’s commitment to its commercial growth plans,” she added.
