Specialist lender Together hires underwriting expert

An underwriting professional with more than 20 years industry experience has joined specialist lender Together as it expands its broker relationship team.

Clare Sadler started her new role this month as the company boosts its capability to support brokers.

As field underwriting specialist, she will focus on cases from Together+ members, which is an exclusive programme designed to build strong relationships with a group of professional partners.

The award-winning underwriter will be based in the South East, responsible for applications submitted to the lender.

She said: “I have been offered a fantastic opportunity and bring a wealth of experience with me. The key thing that attracted me to Together is the common sense approach to underwriting – if a deal makes good business sense, we can look at it.”

In the last five years, she has held similar roles at Landbay, Foundation Home Loans and Solent Mortgage Services Limited. Previously, she spent more than six years as an account manager for Nationwide Building Society.

Clare said: “I’m really looking forward to getting started and excited to be working across the whole product range. Relationships in this industry are so important to build trust, improve knowledge and increase business – and these are the areas I’ll be focusing on.”

In her new role, Clare will report to Tanya Elmaz, national underwriting specialist manager.

Tanya said: “We’re delighted to welcome Clare onto the team as we expand our focus on Together+ and strengthen our presence across the UK.”
