Together restructures broker sales team

Together has reorganised its intermediary relations division into two dedicated specialist support teams for personal and commercial finance cases.

As part of the reshuffle, the lender has promoted James Briggs (pictured above) to head of intermediary sales for the specialist personal finance team, who will report to Alan Davison, Together’s personal finance director of distribution.

In his new role, James will lead a team of three specialist account managers to cover the regions in mainland UK, focusing exclusively on distributing Together’s personal finance products, including first- and second-charge mortgages, consumer BTL and regulated bridging loans.

Meanwhile, the lender’s new UK-wide specialist commercial broker sales team will be responsible for relationships with key partners whose clients are looking for commercial finance, including unregulated bridging loans, BTL and commercial mortgages.

Within the specialist commercial broker sales team, Paula Purdy and Tanya Elmaz will lead the members covering the North and South, respectively.

Both will report to Sundeep Patel, director of sales at Together.

Commenting on his promotion, James said: “I’m delighted to be taking up my new role at such an exciting time for our business. 

“In terms of our personal finance growth, we have seen our volume of loan completions through our broker channel more than triple in a year. 

“We want to continue this tremendous momentum by focusing on our key partners and generating opportunities with new partners by providing support to them through this new dedicated team of field-based colleagues.”

Sundeep added: “Together’s intermediary channel posted a record last quarter for lending volumes in March, but far from resting on our laurels, we are striving to continually improve our business performance.

“Together’s decision to create two specialist sales teams will enhance our commitment to our broker partners by building even better service and quality, developing mutually valuable relationships to get the best possible outcomes for their clients.”
