Specialist lender Together has hired ex-banker Simon Raine as an advisor to its board.
Raine (pictured), who has over 35 years’ experience in financial services, joins from Handelsbanken, where he helped to develop its business across northern England and Scotland.
In his new role at Together, Raine will advise board members responsible for the business’ corporate and commercial lending.
He will support clients including wealth managers, developers, investors and entrepreneurs, as the group expands its commercial and corporate distribution channels.
He said: “I’m really excited to be joining at a time when Together is realising its ambitious growth plans, as I have known and admired the business for a long time. The group has an enviable history in the specialist lending industry and has become well-respected for its innovative financial products and its commitment to providing the best possible service for its clients.
“It’s a great opportunity to join as the business continues its expansion.”
Marc Goldberg, the group’s commercial CEO, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Simon as a board adviser. His experience speaks for itself and he has a wealth of knowledge to help us promote and enhance the core strengths of the business to new introducers and clients.”
