Bailey leaves Together after 20 years


Together sales director Gary Bailey has announced that he has left the specialist lender after 20 years.

Bailey joined Together, formerly Blemain Group, in 1997 and is a well-known face in the mortgage industry.

In a parting note, Bailey explains that he has yet to decide what his next career move will be but is “looking at new opportunities.”

He says: “After 20 years of hard work, loyal service and exciting times, I have decided to take the next step in my career, where ever that may lead me”.

“Hopefully, I have been instrumental in shaping Together over the years and playing my part in creating the successful business Together is today.

“I haven’t decided yet on my future career aspirations, and so I will be looking at new opportunities as they arise and wherever they may take me.”

Earlier this year, Together received a £90m funding boost from Goldman Sachs for bridging loans.
