He joins from Precise Mortgages, where he was business development manager for almost four years.
Prior to this, Cleary has been a mortgage adviser at both Barclays and HSBC.
Working alongside the company’s existing team of BDMs, he will be responsible for building and maintaining relationships with brokers.
The lender said the appointment marks the next step in its market expansion strategy and follows the appointment of Chris Parr as BDM for Midlands and the North earlier this month.
Cleary said: “I am absolutely chuffed to be joining the team at MT finance.
“What the company has achieved over the last decade is merit worthy in itself but how the company has conducted its business is what truly set them apart for me.
“I can’t think of a lender that radiates a culture of team-work from the inside out quite like MT Finance and I feel enormously privileged to now be a part of that.”
Gareth Lewis, commercial director, added: “We are dedicated to continuing our support of the broker community, and Rory is an excellent addition to our business development team.
“He brings a great knowledge of both the bridging and specialist mortgage market; I’m sure brokers will welcome his support.”
