Bob Stones

Ex-Together regional development director joins Signature Property Finance

Signature Property Finance has appointed Bob Stones (pictured above) as a relationship manager.

In his new role, he will help the firm expand its offering into Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, and the North East.

Bob joins Signature from Together, where he worked as a regional development director.

Prior to this, he worked at NatWest for 27 years in various positions.

Commenting on his appointment, Bob said: “[Signature Property Finance is] a well-managed business with an experienced senior team and great potential to support property developers in the regions, for which I will be responsible.

“Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and North East England offer great potential, with the cheaper land and house prices attracting new developers into the area, building new smaller-scale developments, and refurbishing older properties as rural areas grow in popularity post-Covid.  

“The business came through the recent market challenges impressively and, having had the growth strategy explained to me, I was keen to join.”

Tony Gilbertson, CEO at Signature, added: “In challenging times, it is satisfying to bring into our business experienced individuals like Bob, who has probably forgotten more about property finance than most people have ever learned.

“The past six months has been challenging for the UK as a whole and the property sector in particular, but we focussed on completing deals with our existing clients and ensuring they had the support they needed to get their deals done.”

Signature believes now is the right time to expand its offering into new areas to ensure property developers across the nation can benefit from its “unique brand of short-term property finance”.

“Appointing Bob is another statement from Signature that we have a unique offering that’s attracting repeat business from brokers, developers and investors who recognise the quality of our service; getting the message out into new regions is now our priority."
