United Trust Bank is continuing to develop its Bridging Sales Team by promoting experienced bridging specialist Bradley Illman to the role of Key Account Manager for London.

Bradley (Brad) joined UTB in 2012 as an underwriter in the Bridging division and was instrumental in the creation of the Bank’s Bridging Internal Sales Team.

In his new role as Key Account Manager for London, Brad will be the day-to-day point of contact for London based bridging introducers, meeting them regularly and employing his extensive bridging knowledge to help brokers win and place deals and develop their bridging business.

Brad’s experience in both Internal Sales and Underwriting enables him to provide prompt lending decisions, insight on what UTB can do for borrowers and assist brokers when packaging and submitting complex cases which need to be progressed quickly.

Paula Purdy, Head of Sales, Bridging, United Trust Bank said:

“Brad is a very knowledgeable bridging professional and I am delighted to welcome him to the field team. His extensive bridging experience is excellent and particularly useful when assisting with more complex cases.

Just as important, he is both trusted and approachable and I know he’s going to be a highly regarded Key Account Manager.”

Bradley Illman said:

“I am looking forward to supporting UTB’s London based brokers, strengthening our relationships and exploring how we can continue to improve upon the already high service levels they expect and deserve from us.

There’s huge untapped potential in the bridging market, particularly in the unregulated space.

Now that UTB’s bridging operation is structured to provide separate quick and streamlined journeys for regulated and unregulated bridging applications, my aim is to use the experience I have in both disciplines to ensure UTB remains a go-to bridging lender no matter how vanilla or complex the case.”
