"Their appointments clearly signal our intentions to grow the business even more in the near future and to support businesses and their advisers with lending solutions"
Together is focusing on growth in the corporate lending market by expanding its corporate relationships team.
The team has more than doubled in size with two additional corporate relationship directors and two corporate relationship support managers.
Together’s corporate lending business aims to provide finance for a wide range of customers, from large businesses to individual investors, who are seeking to raise capital or acquire property and typically may seek to borrow £1 million or more.
The new appointments include Sonia Mann and Andrew Fouli who join as corporate relationship directors in the Midlands and London respectively.
Sonia brings more than 20 years’ experience in business development with roles at RBS, Barclays, and most recently with Santander’s asset finance arm. Andrew, whose banking career spans more than 30 years, joins from Cynergy Bank – formerly Bank of Cyprus UK – where he worked as a banking support manager.
Geoff Walton and Kathy Murphy Hunter have been appointed as support managers and both join from Lloyds Banking Group, where Geoff was previously associate relationship director and Kathy was the commercial finance regional manager’s assistant.
They will all report to Andrew Charnley who joined Together from Lloyds Banking Group in November as head of corporate relationships.
Andrew Charnley said: “I am delighted to welcome Sonia, Andrew, Geoff and Kathy to the team. They bring with them exceptional experience, knowledge, ambition and drive to help us deliver our aspirations to be the number one choice for corporate finance in this market.
“Their appointments clearly signal our intentions to grow the business even more in the near future and to support businesses and their advisers with lending solutions tailored to their needs and delivered in an efficient and timely manner.
“Our ethos is to be agile, personal, flexible and straightforward. With our expanded team we are now perfectly equipped to build on our already successful business, established as a leader in the industry through exceptional levels of service, understanding customers’ needs and adopting a thoroughly proactive attitude to build long-term quality relationships.”
