Specialist lender Together has appointed a new business development manager for the South West and South Wales.
The lender has hired Michelle Walsh, formerly Barclays operations and risk manager for intermediary mortgage business.
Walsh has also held roles at Nemo Personal Finance and Legal & General.
Walsh says: “It’s really refreshing to come back to the specialist lending market after more than a decade with a high street bank.
“My experience helps me to identify those gaps in mainstream lending which Together has the expertise to fill, so I’m very much looking forward to building new relationships with brokers across the South West and South Wales, and introducing them to Together’s common sense philosophy.”
Together group intermediary relationship director Richard Tugwell says: “We’re delighted to welcome Michelle into the team.
“She has a vast amount of experience working with brokers, and her expertise spans both the mainstream and specialist sectors, which provides a really rounded knowledge.”
