HTB bolsters specialist mortgages team

Hampshire Trust Bank (HTB) has promoted Sally Wright (pictured above) to head of intermediary distribution, and has appointed Andrea Glasgow as head of new business for specialist mortgages.

In her new role, Sally — who was previously the bank’s head of proposition within the specialist mortgages division — will be responsible for widening the lender’s distribution footprint and developing greater relationships with larger distributors across the specialist finance sector.

Meanwhile, Andrea — who re-joins HTB from Glenhawk — takes up responsibility for heading up new business, supporting existing and new brokers with the bank’s specialist lending proposition, which includes BTL, semi-commercial and bridging finance solutions.

Both will report to Louisa Sedgwick, HTB’s managing director for specialist mortgages.

Commenting on her promotion, Sally said: “We have been steadily growing HTB’s intermediary distribution over the past few years in a controlled and sustainable way. 

“I’m delighted to take on this new opportunity, managing both existing relationships, as well as bringing new distributors on board as we look to further expand our footprint.”

Andrea added: “I can honestly say that HTB is one of the most dynamic, and exciting places to work in our industry; we have a fantastic proposition and team, all of whom are committed to supporting our ever-increasing broker base and providing excellent service.

“I know Louisa has big plans for the future and I look forward to playing my part in supporting the team in making them happen.”

Louisa stated: “I am absolutely delighted to announce these new appointments; Sally and Andrea have excellent track records and I’m confident they will flourish in their new roles, galvanising the teams to meet the banks’ ambitious targets.

“HTB’s specialist mortgages division is undergoing significant growth and looks set to maintain and exceed its current trajectory in lending over the coming months. 

“These appointments will support our growth plans for 2022 and beyond.”
