UTB and YBS Commercial Mortgages bolster teams

United Trust Bank (UTB) and YBS Commercial Mortgages have added new members to their specialist finance teams.

United Trust Bank

United Trust Bank has appointed Alice Robins, Shalini Karsan, Jason White and Rob Bracher as sales support officers for its asset finance operations team.

In their new roles, they will work closely with brokers to ensure that all the administration is processed quickly once proposals have been approved in order to provide speedy pay outs to customers.

Alice and Shalini join UTB from Aldermore and DLL respectively, while Jason and Rob both join the lender from PCF Bank.

All of them have extensive operations experience, having worked with a range of funders for several years and dealing with brokers financing a wide variety of assets.

UTB is continuing to expand its asset finance operations team, having already made 10 new hires since the start of the year, including Louise McIntosh, who joined the bank in the summer as head of operations.

Commenting on the new appointments, Louise said: “UTB is well known for its high standards of broker service and our aim is to get deals paid out in line with the customer’s requirements followed quickly by the broker commission. 

“Alice, Shalini, Jason and Rob have joined us at an exciting time with demand for UTB funding growing quickly. 

“Their experience and knowledge have enabled them to get straight on with the job, ensuring that our brokers continue to receive the service and support they need despite us transacting record volumes of new business.

“When a swift pay-out is vital, assuming a broker gives us all the documents requested early in the day, we’ll complete the admin quickly and do all we can to get the funds to their customer on the same day. 

“At present, we’re delivering 24 hour pay outs 90% of the time; however, our aim by the end of the year is to be hitting that mark every single time.”

YBS Commercial Mortgages

YBS Commercial Mortgages has appointed Georgie McRoberts as a relationship director for the North.

In hew new role, she will be working closely with fellow North team members, including regional director Sarah Prescott, relationship director Paul Bagnall and relationship managers Jack Dunne and Dan Wisson, who also recently joined the team.

Georgie, who has worked in the industry for over 12 years, has significant experience in commercial lending, particularly in the private sector.

She joins the lender from Peter Tyson, where she worked as head of finance and business systems.

“I am looking forward to being part of the North team with YBS Commercial Mortgages and promoting our excellent offering in the area,” said Georgie.

“I’m so excited to get out in the market, working closely with brokers and customers to achieve our common goals.”

Sarah added: “I’m so pleased to welcome Georgie to our team. 

“I’m really looking forward to her contribution and I have no doubt that, with her experience, she’ll quickly become invaluable to the team and the business.”
