Laura McMullen said, “We continue to strengthen our commitment to the intermediary market and I am particularly pleased to welcome James to the development team. We are focusing considerable resources to build relationships with the intermediary market. Evidence already tells us cases introduced by professional advisers are invariably of good quality and are well researched and prepared. This helps us to reach decisions faster and ultimately lend to more businesses needing finance.”
