Together has hired three business development managers in Chris Timms, Kitt Makwana and Paula Dowson to work with brokers in the Midlands, London and the North East respectively.

Timms has joined from NatWest after working at Which? and London and Country, Makwana joined from Barclays and Dowson was hired from from Virgin Money.

Richard Tugwell, (pictured) Together’s group intermediary relationship director, said: “As we continue with our ambitious growth plans, we want to substantially grow our UK presence so that brokers and packagers across the country have an experienced Together representative on hand locally for them.

“Our new business development managers bring with them over 40 years of combined industry experience and will be a great asset to our growing team.”

Together is looking to raise awareness of its offering, which includes residential, commercial and buy-to-let mortgages, as well as short-term finance, auction finance and secured loans.

Timms said: “Together’s approach to lending decisions allows us to problem solve, and having worked as a broker myself, I know how important that is.”

Makwana said: “I look forward to working with brokers across London to bring greater awareness of Together’s offering and help them find tailored solutions for their customers.”

And Dowson said: “Together’s common sense approach to lending is really refreshing, so I’m pleased to be part of the team and look forward to introducing Together’s specialist offering to the North East intermediary market.”
