Specialist lender Together has announced the appointment of Andrew Charnley to the newly created role of head of corporate relationships.
Charnley joins with 25 years’ experience in commercial lending and moves from Lloyds Banking Group where he was previously head of asset based lending (SME).
Charnley will be developing Together’s established and rapidly growing corporate client base in the UK, in a role that will focus on attracting clients across the corporate sector, from large businesses to individual investors, seeking to raise capital or looking towards acquisitions.
Chris Baguley, commercial director at Together said:
“Andrew is immensely well respected across the corporate financial sector. He brings with him a wealth of expertise and, most importantly, shares our commitment to removing the barriers to lending by understanding the specific needs of the individual and their wider circumstances. We are delighted that he has chosen to join us in our continued growth.”
On his appointment, Andrew Charnley said:
“Together does things differently. Its human underwriting process replaces the strict, tick-box lending criteria applied by main stream lenders affording its clients heightened levels of flexibility and speed. I am personally aligned to the values that they hold in investing in long term relationships with people, not cases. It is an approach that has served them well over their 44 year history and one which has supported an impressive growth record, to a £3bn loan book, a client base of 34,000 and 740 colleagues.”
Charnley joins Together, which has its headquarters in Cheadle, south Manchester, today (November 27, 2018)
