Gatehouse Bank expands home finance team with three new case managers


Georgina Taylor,Sinead Hendrikse and Tyler Sullivan

Gatehouse Bank has appointed Georgina Taylor, Sinead Hendrikse and Tyler Sullivan as Case Managers in its rapidly expanding Home Finance Operations team.

Georgina brings with her a wealth of experience from the property and mortgage sectors, having held a number of roles at Connells. Most recently Georgina was a Product Analyst for Countrywide, assessing the different mortgages brought to market.

Sinead’s previous roles have involved underwriting and investigating fraudulent activity in the banking industry. She has 5 years experience in financial services and joins Gatehouse Bank from Virgin Money. Earlier in her career she worked for Santander.

Tyler has joined Gatehouse from Connells where he spent 18 months gaining experience in a similar case management role.

All three will be based at Gatehouse’s Milton Keynes office.

These appointments follow increased demand for Gatehouse Bank’s growing range of products and services. Since entering the Buy-to-Let market at the end of 2017, the Bank launched a Commercial Property Finance proposition in November, offering finance of between £500,000 and £2million for businesses and investors.

In addition, Gatehouse — a Shariah-compliant Bank — entered the homebuyer market earlier this month (5th December) with the launch of its first Home Purchase Plan product, an alternative to a conventional mortgage.

The Bank also recently improved its online finance platform for brokers and direct customers, and launched a new website, which has been redesigned to make it even easier for interested parties to find out more about the range of services available from the Bank.

Karen Faulkner, Head of Home Finance Operations at Gatehouse Bank, commented:

“We are delighted to welcome Georgina, Sinead and Tyler and the Gatehouse team.

Gatehouse is growing and introducing new products at quite a rate and the experience our new joiners bring will help ensure that applications for finance progress smoothly right through to completion.

We are placing great value on experienced heads in our Home Finance Operations team. We’re determined brokers and direct customers will not be subjected to a tick box exercise that ignores their individual needs. It’s got to be something more personal and adaptable.”
