Gary Bailey to leave Together after 20 years

Gary Bailey has confirmed to B&C that he is officially leaving Together on Wednesday after 20 years of service.

The sales director joined the 42-year-old specialist lending group – then known as Jerrold Holdings – in 1997, and has been responsible for the company’s short- and long-term broker sales strategy.

Gary specialises in complex residential and commercial mortgages, second charge loans and bridging finance and has 25 years of industry experience.

Gary has not said where he will be heading to next.

"After 20 years of hard work, loyal service and exciting times, I have decided to take the next step in my career, wherever that may lead me," said Gary.

"I’d like to thank my colleagues for the support they have provided as it has been a privilege and honour to work with so many good people, and to enjoy such successful times."

Gary explained that he was leaving Together during an "excellent" period of growth based on the loyal support of accredited brokers which had provided mutual success for many years. 

"I’d like to thank them for their support and for the good times we have enjoyed as business colleagues and friends.

"For a while now, I have focussed on ensuring my colleagues weren’t unsettled by my departure and on leaving the company in a good positon to continue the growth plans and success for Together, as they implement plans to expand to a wider mortgage intermediary distribution.

"I haven’t yet decided on my future career aspirations, and so I will be looking at new opportunities as they arise and wherever they may take me.

"I wish everyone success for the future and hopefully we will keep in touch."

Earlier this month, the lender boosted its intermediary business team with the appointment of two ex-Virgin Money BDMs.

Together recently won three awards at the 2017 Bridging & Commercial Awards: best bridging lender, best commercial lender and outstanding contribution to the specialist finance industry.

Last week, the lender launched a new specialist buy-to-let range and increased its maximum loan size to £2m to support property investors as they grow their portfolios.
