Connect for Intermediaries has appointed Gareth Norman as a commercial lending specialist.
Coming from Atom bank, where he worked as a BDM, and previous to that, at HSBC as a commercial banking specialist for nine years, Norman will be supporting brokers with clients in search of a commercial mortgage, with a particular focus on complex cases of £1m and over.
He will also be helping clients who own their own company who wish to use their property to further company growth or improve cash flow.
In addition to these duties, Norman will be conducting broker master classes from his office in Essex.
Norman comments: “My aim has always been to create a situation where everyone wins, and I will only ever place a deal that will be an advantage to the client. My aim is to enhance the broker’s reputation with their client, save them time and worry, achieve a higher level of completions than they may otherwise have been able to achieve, and enable them to see more clients than they would otherwise be able to.”
Connect for Intermediaries chief executive Liz Syms adds: “Gareth’s addition to our strong commercial team will mean that we can provide brokers with assistance even for the most complex commercial cases. Connect is already well known for providing brokers with expert help and advice for commercial and buy-to-let mortgages. Gareth’s appointment will mean that we can take this one step further again.”
