Together appoints experienced mortgage broker as Corporate Sales Director
Property lender Together has appointed an experienced commercial mortgage broker to grow its corporate sales in London.
Aijan Aldridge, who has more than a decade’s experience in commercial finance, will represent the Cheadle-based finance company in the capital as it continue to expand its £6.6bn loan book.
Aijan joins Together from Opes Financial Partners, a High Net Worth mortgage broker, where she was an associate director, managing property portfolios for clients, overseeing luxury property deals and sourcing investment opportunities.
In her new role with Together, she will continue to cultivate relationships with existing corporate clients, as well as promoting Together’s fast and flexible finance to London’s property investors, brokers, buying agents and High Net Worth (HNW) individuals.
“It’s great to join such a well-respected, successful finance company. I have always worked in the same spheres as Together thanks to my previous role as a licenced broker.
After meeting many ambitious, hardworking Together colleagues at their Women in Finance events, it has been wonderful to come on board and join the group.
Together’s common sense approach to lending is refreshing to see and I’m looking forward to helping to provide clients with finance solutions which work for them and they may not be able to find with other lenders.”
Aijan moved to London over two decades ago from the former Soviet Union, where she grew up. There, she gained her bachelors degree in Finance and International Economics. She now lives in London with her daughter.
She added: “I have always maintained strong relationships with HNW clients, brokers, portfolio managers and business leaders at SMEs, and this is something I am keen to continue to do in my career with Together.”
Aijan will report to Elliot Vure, Director of Corporate Sales at Together in her new role as Corporate Sales Director, which she started last month.
“Aijan is a great addition to the Together Team. After joining us a few weeks ago, she has already taken the company’s values to provide fast and flexible lending in her stride.
Her vast knowledge of the market and wealth of experience in the commercial finance sector make her a real asset to the company, and will help to grow Together in London, and across the country.”
