Hope Capital has appointed four business development managers and a head of marketing, tripling the size of its business development team.
Emma Tempest has joined as BDM for the Midlands and East Anglia, while Stephen Allen as BDM for the South West and Wales. The lender has also hired two internal business development managers, Christopher Buckley joining this week and Debbie Wilson joining in a month’s time.
Miriam Howarth, formerly an associate director of iProspect, joins as marketing director to develop Hope Capital’s brand strategy, increase the number of broker events and build relationships with brokers and key partners.
Jonathan Sealey, chief executive of Hope Capital, said: “These appointments mark the next stage of Hope Capital’s growth strategy.
“We more than doubled in size last year and we are continuing to grow rapidly, but our priority is ensuring that our service remains exemplary even with the rapidly increasing demand for our loans.
“Quick decision making and turnaround times, as well as the fact that brokers can rely on us to do what we say we will, are the key reasons brokers and their clients return to us again and again. These new appointments will ensure that this remains the case.”
