Together has appointed Robert Oliver to the position of national business development manager, as the specialist lender continues to expand its personal finance operations in line with the group’s long-term plans.

Robert, whose career in financial services spans nearly 30 years, will oversee a team of nine business development managers working across the UK.

With a strong background in the mortgage market, Robert brings a wealth of experience to the role. He joins from Capital Home Loans where he was head of field sales, and prior to that, worked as a regional manager for Virgin Money for over 10 years.

Robert, pictured, said:

“I joined Together because I wanted a new and exciting challenge, with the opportunity to really make a difference, and this seemed an ideal fit for my aspirations. It’s a forward-looking business that is already renowned as a leader in the specialist finance industry, so it’s an exciting time to join. My role will enable me to play an integral part in the growth and development of the broker sales team, which I’m very much looking forward to.”

Gary Bailey sales director at Together, added:

“We’re delighted to welcome Robert to Together and are confident that his longstanding expertise in the sector will prove to be a valuable asset.  Robert will play a pivotal role in helping to support and develop our team of business development mangers and, in turn, our network of broker partners, as we continue with our ambitious growth plans.”

Together prides itself on its common sense approach to lending and has a current loan book of over £2 billion, with total new lending for 2016 at just under £1.1 billion.
