Together has appointed Alex Garland (pictured) as corporate relationship director covering the North of England.
Garland has worked in commercial real estate finance for nearly 20 years and will be responsible for looking after existing relationships and widening the lender’s network of corporate clients.
Garland will operate regionally by covering Manchester, Leeds and the North East and was most recently a senior director at Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banking Group.
The new corporate relationship director started his career at Together as a commercial underwriter.
He said: “It’s great to be back.
“I’ve been working in mainstream banking for a long time now and that market has changed significantly over the last decade.
“I’m ready for a new challenge and, having started off in specialist lending, I’ve come full circle.
“Over the years, I’ve always kept an eye on Together’s amazing growth and its ambitions for the future.
“It’s fantastic to be part of the team again.”
Andrew Charnley, head of corporate relationships at Together, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Alex as the latest recruit to our highly-successful and growing business.
“He will team up again with our commercial chief executive, Marc Goldberg, and offer his vast expertise in commercial and corporate lending as we continue our expansion.”.
