Hampshire Trust Bank (HTB) has announced the appointment of Mark Newman as a business development manager (BDM) for East Anglia within its specialist mortgages division, reporting to Andrea Glasgow, HTB’s sales director for specialist mortgages.

Mark has been promoted from the role of lending manager.

Mark joined HTB as a lending assessor for new business in 2022 with responsibility for case packaging prior to underwriting, as well as supporting brokers with updates and case queries.

He was latterly promoted to lending manager in January 2023, covering the South West region to support HTB’s regional BDM by dealing with new enquiries and reviewing pipeline cases to ensure they progressed smoothly.

Mark will be responsible for developing new and existing broker relationships and promoting the bank’s proposition in East Anglia, whilst ensuring professional investors and landlords are fully supported through delivery of HTB’s award-winning service, innovative new products and flexible criteria.

HTB provides professional investors and landlords with specialist residential loans up to £25m for limited companies, offshore entities, expats and foreign nationals, as well as mixed use portfolios and semi-commercial properties.

Mark Newman, business development manager, specialist mortgages, Hampshire Trust Bank, commented:

“The environment at HTB is such that since I joined 18 months ago, I have felt incredibly motivated to push myself and develop.

HTB sees your potential and supports personal growth – it is an incredibly rewarding environment to be a part of.

Having worked hard to gain two promotions since joining HTB, and having built strong relationships both internally and externally, I am excited to help support our broker partners to deliver our award-winning service to their customers in an ever-changing market.”

Andrea Glasgow, sales director, specialist mortgages, Hampshire Trust Bank, added: 

“Mark’s promotion is well-deserved, and I am certain he will flourish in his new role.

It is incredibly important to me, and the bank, that we grow and retain top talent in our industry, and I am ecstatic to welcome Mark to the role.

He is one of many talented individuals working in HTB’s specialist mortgages division, who together are responsible for delivering our strong proposition and award-winning service.

As we approach 2024, HTB has an insatiable appetite to support all types of landlords, from both first-time ones and professional investors.

We will continue to strengthen and refine our product and service propositions to achieve this, and I know that Mark brings the right attitude, skills and experience to support this.”
