Together announces appointment of new Head of Clubs and Networks
Specialist lender Together has today announced the new appointment of Nick Parker as Head of Clubs and Networks.
Nick will be responsible for the strategic development of the channel, focusing on Together’s strong relationships with its networks and clubs, and building a first-class, service-led proposition centred around them. His remit will also include designing and delivering the growth strategy for key stakeholders across both personal and commercial finance.
Nick joins Together after three years at Aldermore as Head of Intermediary Distribution. With nearly 30 years’ experience with organisations such as Lloyds Banking Group, Barclays and Mortgages PLC, he has expert knowledge of the role of advisors and the markets they operate in, a keen understanding of sales processes, and existing relationships with many clubs and networks.
Together which has a loan book of over £4.8 billion, provides finance for a wide range of customers from large businesses to individual investors and SMEs, seeking to raise capital or acquire property or land.
Pete Ball, CEO of Personal Finance at Together said: “We are delighted to have Nick joining the team. Our clubs and networks are a crucial part of Together, and the relationships we have built and continue to nurture with them are of paramount importance to us.
“Nick brings extensive experience in a variety of roles across the industry which will be a great asset. He will help us meet our ambitious growth aspirations by supporting our clubs and networks with the fast and flexible finance services we are known for, tailored to their needs.”
Nick Parker said: “From the first moment I spoke to Together’s leadership team, their passion for the business and for building a leading club and network proposition was clear. Together has an exceptional range of products and solutions to support lending backed by experienced and flexible underwriting.
“I’m excited to be part of the next chapter in Together’s journey and look forward to engaging with our club and network partners in the coming months as we start this journey together.”
Nick will be replacing Phil Quinn, who has been working as Head of National Accounts for the past two years.
Marc Goldberg, CEO of Commercial Finance said: “We would like to thank Phil for the incredible work he has done here at Together. In his time here, he has done an excellent job keeping Together connected to our club and network partners, and we wish him all the best for the future.”
