Together promotes corporate MD Chris Baguley to group wide strategic role
Together has promoted experienced corporate finance expert Chris Baguley to a new role driving future growth for the £6.2billion specialist lender.
Chris has now taken up the position of Group Channel Development Director, a new role to provide strategic support and to launch new initiatives, aimed at further building the business’s brand across commercial and personal finance markets.
Chris will continue to drive thought leadership across the industry and continue to build out the business proposition to its customers, colleagues and business partners.
Having joined the Cheadle-based property lender in 2006, his most recent position was Managing Director of Corporate.
He previously held senior posts at Manchester Building Society and Yorkshire Bank, where he specialised in commercial banking, during a career spanning nearly 35 years.
In his new role, Chris will explore new opportunities for growth across Together’s established sales channels and raise its profile and strong reputation across the UK market.
The role will support the group towards achieving its ambitious growth objectives over the next five years and also explore new markets, as the business continues to deliver record levels of growth.
“It’s a huge honour to be taking up this new post within such an amazing business and I am proud to have been part of the journey to drive this forward over the past 17 years”.
“I’m looking forward to exploring ways in which I can help deliver Together’s growth ambitions across the wider UK lending marketing; driving a collaborative approach across each business area in the group as we deliver on our plans for the next five years.
“This is an exciting time for the business as we look to develop our presence across the UK, and continue the incredible growth we have achieved in recent times.”
Marc Goldberg, CEO of Group Sales and Distribution at Together said:
“Chris is a long-standing and much-valued member of our senior team at Together, and we are incredibly excited to see him stepping into this new role.
His experience, drive and passion for everything we do as a business will continue to be an asset to Together, and we are excited to see what he can bring to this new position.
He will be ensuring that the Cheadle-based lender’s customers and partners remain at the heart of everything at Together, regardless of which channel they come through.”
