"These appointments mark the next stage of Hope Capital’s growth strategy. "
Hope Capital has announced five new appointments, tripling the size of its business development team.
Emma Tempest is joining to look after the Midlands and East Anglia, while Stephen Allen will head the South West and Wales. This will complement the existing BDM team with Maria Magnussen in London and the South East and Wayne Lee who looks after the north of England.
The external BDM team will be assisted by an expanded internal team whose role it is to help brokers with case submissions, ensuring they can always speak to someone on the phone and cases are turned around as quickly as possible.
Two new faces will join the team with Christopher Buckley joining this week and Debbie Wilson joining in a month’s time. They will be the first point of contact for brokers phoning in to Hope Capital for help, advice and information.
In addition to the broker facing BDM team, Hope Capital is taking on a new head of marketing. Miriam Howarth, formerly an associate director of iProspect, is joining to develop and enhance Hope Capital’s brand strategy, increase the number of broker events that Hope Capital holds and help build relationships with brokers and key partners.
Jonathan Sealey, CEO of Hope Capital, said: “These appointments mark the next stage of Hope Capital’s growth strategy. We more than doubled in size last year and we are continuing to grow rapidly, but our priority is ensuring that our service remains exemplary even with the rapidly increasing demand for our loans.
“Quick decision making and turnaround times, as well as the fact that brokers can rely on us to do what we say we will, are the key reasons brokers and their clients return to us again and again. These new appointments will ensure that this remains the case.”
