Specialist Mortgage Group (SMG) has named Liam Hughes (pictured above) as the new head of Y3S Bridging & Commercial.

Liam — who has been promoted to the role after being with the business for over seven years — has vast experience in the bridging and commercial sectors.

“The team [members] here are, in my opinion, some of the most motivated and competent staff in the industry and we are seeking to achieve great things in this space,” said Liam.

“At a time when we are seeing unprecedented growth, my role will mainly involve reviewing our internal processes and procedures to drive up efficiency. 

“With this in mind, we will also be recruiting the very highest standard of staff to complement the strength of the team.”

Barney Drake, CEO at SMG, commented: “As a professional with many years of experience in the field and with such a high level of respect from his peers, Liam’s promotion to head the team was an easy decision to make. 

“He has a huge amount to contribute in order to help grow the business very quickly to an unprecedented level without compromising quality.”

On 30th March, SMG acquired the full share capital from its founding directors Nathan Raffour and Andrew Gage.

The Cardiff-based group, previously known as Y3S Group, also includes the packager businesses Y3S Loans, Y3S Private Clients, B2B Financial, and Chaseblue Loans.
