Together has expanded its regional sales team with the appointment of Laura Sneddon as business development manager (BDM) for the South East.
Sneddon (pictured) has over 15 years’ experience in the mortgage industry, previously working as a director for a mortgage brokerage that was an appointed representative of Legal & General. Prior to this, she was a business development manager for specialist lender The Mortgage Business, part of HBOS, and is CeMap qualified.
She said: “Together is in a really exciting phase in terms of its growth, and there’s a real enthusiasm and a strong appetite to lend. I’m looking forward to developing relationships with brokers across the region and enhancing our presence in the South East.”
Gary Bailey, sales director at Together, added: “There’s no doubt that with her depth of knowledge and experience, Laura will be a great addition to our nationwide sales team. Having worked on the broker side as well, she has a solid understanding of the brokers’ needs which is a real asset.
“The property market in the South East is thriving, and has seen 8.8% year on year growth, with prices increasing to an average of £365,000. A persistent shortage of housing is the main driver for rising house prices, as demand far outstrips supply, and it’s predicted that prices will continue to increase further so we’d anticipate that we’ll see strong demand for finance here.”
