Andrew Charnley has been appointed by Together to the newly created role of head of corporate relationships.
Charnley (pictured) joins the specialist lender 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 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.”
Charnley added: “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.”
