Together appoints experienced banker as its new Corporate Sales Manager
Property lender Together has appointed a banking expert to drive its corporate sales in the West Midlands.
Surb Kaur, who has more than two decades of experience in commercial finance, will be the Group’s representative within the West Midlands as the finance company continues to grow its £6.6bn loan book.
She joins from NatWest, where she was a Relationship Director, having first begun her career as a Business Advisor at the bank in 2004.
At Together, she will be responsible for promoting its fast and flexible finance to a network of SMEs, property investors, landlords, developers and High Net Worth (HNW) individuals across the region.
“It’s great to be starting this new position at such a highly-successful finance company.
I have always been incredibly impressed with the fantastic proposition that Together offers in the marketplace.
It prides itself as a common sense lender, with managers who are empowered to provide quick decisions, keeping lending simple and supporting businesses to grow.
Together has brought lending right back to basics with real people and has equipped its staff with the ability to say ‘Yes’
Its approach to lending makes Together one of the ‘most valuable seats at the table’ amongst businesses and intermediaries who, with the backing of Together, are able to provide clients with finance solutions that they may struggle to place with other lenders.
I am proud to be working with Together and making a difference to people’s lives by supporting their funding requirements.”
After graduating from The University of Westminster, London-born Surb completed a Master’s degree in Business Studies at Aston University before starting her banking career.
She now lives in Solihull with her family and has continued to learn throughout her career, recently achieving an Advanced Diploma in Banking and Leadership (MCBI).
She said: “I’m looking forward to maintaining my existing strong relationships and forging new ones, in order to open doors for more SMEs, investors and corporate clients in this region.”
Surb will report to Elliot Vure, Director of Corporate Sales at Together in her new role as Corporate Sales Manager, which she started last month.
He said: “We are pleased to welcome Surb to the Together team.
She brings with her a wealth of commercial finance knowhow and experience and will be a real asset to our company in helping to provide the finance to help clients to realise their property ambitions.
Having only joined a few weeks ago, Surb has thoroughly bought into our company’s vision to be the most valued lending company in the UK.”
