Hope Capital office

Hope Capital has made a series of key promotions within its team as it looks to propel its growth strategy.

Charlie Gregory, who previously held the title of Business Development Manager has now been promoted to Senior Business Development Manager, where he will continue to support clients in London and the South, while having more involvement in the strategic direction of the sales team and overall business.

Hope Capital’s Underwriting department has also witnessed substantial growth with the announcement of two newly created Senior Underwriter roles, as well as a new Underwriter role.

Andy Bate who joined the lender in June 2021 and Ryan Peers who joined the business in April 2022, have both been promoted to Senior Underwriters following demonstrating exceptional performances in their roles.

Hammad Abbasi has also progressed from Underwriting Coordinator to an Underwriter where he will play a crucial part in making decisions on applications and progressing deals through to completion and helping to further strengthen the business.

Jonathan Sealey, CEO at Hope Capital, commented:

“All of these promotions are thoroughly deserved. Charlie, Andy, and Ryan all know the business inside and out and have shown complete dedication and commitment to their roles.

 Although Hammad is a more recent appointment, he too has shown a real commitment to the role and company, which is why we have no doubt he is ready to step up to an Underwriter position.

Each promotion will enable us to continue to grow and build even stronger relationships with our brokers, stakeholders, and so forth, as we continue to identify further opportunities for expansion in the market.”

As part of Hope Capital’s growth strategy, the lender introduced several newly created roles in 2023, and has plans to continue to grow its team significantly in 2024.

Jonathan continued:

“Investing in the team is central to our ethos.

Not only have we made a number of promotions in recognition of the hard work and dedication which has been demonstrated, but the decision to grow the team even further is something we’re really passionate about as the new year commences.

We’re experiencing an extremely successful time as a business, with significant growth in enquiries and completions.

By strengthening the team, we hope this will result in us achieving even more milestones in the future.”
