All Types of Mortgages, the specialist mortgage packager/distributor has appointed Peter Turner as director of its commercial business division.

AToM says its commercial enquiry levels have increased dramatically during the last two years and Turners appointment is designed to consolidate and grow this area of the AToM Business offering. Turner will look after all aspects of AToM’s commercial and bridging mortgage business.

Vic Jannels, chairman of AToM, says: “Peter has an established professional reputation in the industry; his knowledge of the commercial arena is outstanding.  AToM has experienced a huge increase in commercial enquiries and it is therefore important for us to provide an in-house offering of the highest quality.  Commercial and bridging are specialist markets and need specialist attention.  Peter’s arrival is key to this and I am particularly delighted that he is now with AToM to manage and grow this project.”

Turner’s previous career history includes a role as head of sales of a commercial brokerage and seven years as a business development manager with RBoS Commercial.
