Together announces two new senior hires in Wales and Scotland



Specialist lender Together has  announced the appointment of two new business development managers.

Ian Hoggart and Martin Bloe will both be bolstering the group’s regional teams and increasing its footprint across Scotland and South Wales.

Their remit will include supporting their existing partners and developing new relationships with brokers, helping to find solutions for their customer’s needs. Both will be reporting to Together’s Head of Intermediary Sales Commercial Finance North, Paula Purdy.

The group, which has a loan book of nearly £5 billion, provides finance for a wide range of customers from large businesses to individual investors and SMEs, seeking to raise capital or acquire property or land.

Ian Hoggart will be looking after Together’s commercial introducers in South Wales.

Previously a mortgage broker, Ian has experience across the UK working for companies such as GW Money, Shawbrook Bank and Nottingham Building Society.

He brings with him extensive knowledge of the mortgage industry, from prime residential property through to specialist BTL, commercial, second charge and commercial lending.

Martin Bloe will be working across Scotland. With 30 years’ experience in financial services in both residential and commercial markets, Martin has honed his knowledge and skills in companies such as RBS.

At RBS, he worked as Director of Lending, leading business banking customer support through several years of successful transitional change, whilst delivering against lending targets.

Paula Purdy said:

“We’re delighted to welcome Ian and Martin to the Together team in Scotland and Wales. They bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience that will be of huge value to our company.

We have ambitious growth aspirations across the UK, and these appointments will help in supporting even more local individuals, businesses and their advisers with fast and flexible finance, tailored to their needs.”
