Together appoints a new BDM for the South coast
Specialist lender Together has hired experienced finance professional Andy Neo as a business development manager covering the South of England.
The 35-year-old, who has worked in financial services for more than a decade, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his new role, which started this week.
Andy said he was looking forward to forging strong relationships with intermediaries across the region – to make a valuable contribution to Together’s continued growth.
He said: “For me, Together is one of the biggest in the specialist lending market, whether that’s for bridging or longer-term finance. It was always an ambition of mine to join what is a really innovative and forward-thinking group and work with the best of the best in the industry.
“Having worked for a short-term lender, I have a lot of experience of working in the unregulated bridging and development finance sector. However, I’m looking forward to introducing a wider broker network to Together’s other short, and long-term products, working closely with partner firms to help identify growth opportunities, provide support and win business.”
After leaving university, Jersey-born Andy started his career at NatWest, working his way up from telephony sales to assistant relationship manager within four years.
Andy, who lives in Southampton, then joined a peer-to-peer lender before taking up a position as a regional relationship manager for London and the South with unregulated bridging lender Signature Property Finance three years ago.
Tanya Elmaz, head of intermediary sales at Together, said Andy’s knowledge, relationships and expertise would build on this success, helping Together to realise its future growth plans.
She said: “We’re delighted to welcome Andy to the business at what is an exciting time for us as we strengthen our presence across the country. He will provide a valuable contribution to Together, by helping brokers and their clients achieve their ambitions as we grow our own loan book.”
