Keith said: “Together is a lender that’s prepared to do things differently to get the best outcome for the customers, which has been a major factor in its growth. Coming into the business you get a real sense of the energy and drive that go alongside that and I’m delighted to join at such an exciting time. I look forward to building and nurturing relationships with our intermediaries and introducing more brokers to our common sense philosophy.”
Richard Tugwell, group intermediary relationship director at Together, added: “It’s a pleasure to welcome Keith to the team at a time when we are really growing the business. He has extensive experience in the intermediary market and will be helping us to get the best out of our relationships with the networks, which to date include Instrinsic, Tenet Group, HL Partnership (HLP) and The Right Mortgage & Protection Network.”
