Together appoints regional account manager
Together has appointed Gary Lomax (pictured) as a regional account manager for the North.
Lomax has worked in specialist lending for more than two decades, and previously spent four years as a business development manager (BDM) for Shawbrook Bank before joining specialist broker Smart Money as a mortgage adviser and BDM.
He joins Together from London-based lender Selina Finance specialising in homeowner business loans, commercial finance and second charge mortgages.
In his new role, he will be responsible for developing and strengthening relationships with intermediaries across the North of England to make a large contribution to Together’s continued growth.
Lomax said: “It was such a big opportunity for me to come into a business of this size and which deals with such a variety of different cases, from regulated first and second charge to buy-to-let and bridging.
“As lockdown lifts, I’m looking forward to getting out to speak face-to-face with more brokers across the North, to support them in developing their businesses with all types of specialist finance.”
Lomax’s appointment comes as Kara Williams, who joined the lender seven years ago, is promoted to BDM.
She previously held roles in direct and broker sales, dealing with Together’s key commercial and personal finance intermediary accounts.
Williams said: “It’s been fantastic building up professional relationships with brokers during my seven years at Together.
“The focus in my new role will be to improve these as the main point of contact for some of our key intermediaries, while building strong relationships with new partners.”
Paula Purdy, intermediary sales manager for the North at Together, said: “We’re delighted to see Kara promoted to the new specialist distribution manager role.
“She has a wealth of knowledge about our systems and lending criteria, which will be of huge benefit to the brokers she’s working alongside.”
“Gary has worked in financial services for over 20 years covering all aspects of property lending.
“His knowledge and passion will be a great asset to the team and we’re pleased to welcome him as we continue to grow our business.”
