UTB expands bridging sales team

United Trust Bank (UTB) has appointed Craig Taylor (pictured above) as a BDM in its bridging sales team.

In his new role, he will be supporting brokers operating in the South West, south Wales and M4 corridor with access to the lender’s range of bridging and short-term property funding solutions.

Craig, who has 10 years of experience working in the property finance industry, joins UTB from Ultimate Finance, where he was a regional sales director.

Prior to this, he held senior positions at various lenders and brokerages, including One 77 Mortgages, Clifton Private Finance and SPF Private Clients.

Owen Bentley, head of sales for bridging at UTB, said: “Craig has experience working on both the lending and broking sides of the industry and has a valuable insight of what both need to bring a deal together. 

“His knowledge of the non-regulated sector will also be put to great use as developing UTB’s unregulated bridging business is a key objective for 2022.

“Craig will be supporting brokers operating in my old patch in the South West and south Wales and I’m delighted that he will continue to develop relationships with brokers I’ve known for many years, as well as introducing UTB to a whole new audience through his own established contacts. 

“This is a very exciting time at UTB as we build on a successful 2021 and look to further enhance our products and services this year.”

This follows the appointment of Nikki Brett as head of underwriting for UTB’s bridging division.
