Stuart comes from a lending background, having worked previously for a leading Building Society. He is incredibly well thought of and will be an asset to our company.

As we grow our Business Development function and increase our incoming enquiry pipeline, we must ensure we maintain our excellent customer service levels and quick turnaround times.
