New BDM hire for HTB in the capital

Hampshire Trust Bank (HTB) has expanded its business development manager (BDM) team with the recruitment of Joseph Lethbridge.

In his new role as BDM, Joseph will join Danny Kiely, BDM for the City of London and West End, to further enhance broker relationships, as well as introduce new intermediaries to HTB’s proposition.

HTB has expanded its BDM team on account of the greater levels of demand from London-based brokers seen this year, reaffirming its commitment to delivering the highest possible standards of support to intermediaries.

Joseph joins from Shawbrook Bank, where he was an internal BDM. He also has experience as a case manager and lending officer, bringing a strong understanding of complex mortgage cases and an appreciation of how to keep cases moving.

Joseph Lethbridge, business development manager at HTB, said:

“I’m really excited to be joining a lender renowned for its dynamism and dedication to the mortgage industry.

“My background has given me great insight into the importance of forging strategic partnerships, and the power of offering bespoke lending solutions, which I look forward to delivering to brokers in my new role with HTB.”

Andrea Glasgow, sales director of specialist mortgages at HTB added:

“People are everything to HTB, and having great people means even greater conversations with our intermediaries.

“As soon as I spoke to Joseph, I knew immediately he’d be the perfect addition to bolster the thriving business development team we’re building across the country.

“I can’t wait to see Joseph flourish and really strengthen those relationships across London.”
