This comes with the promotion of Alex Upton to the role of managing director for specialist mortgages. 

HTB’s bridging division continues under the leadership of director, Jamie Jolly.

During her tenure as leader of the development finance division, Alex transformed the operation and recruited over 40 talented specialists whilst winning a multitude of awards.

Neil is a widely recognised and established figure within the market with decades of experience behind him.

His deep technical knowledge and astute commercial judgement commands the respect of colleagues and clients alike.

Commenting on his appointment, Neil said: "I’m stepping in to lead a department that’s already in an excellent position.

“It’s been a pleasure working with Alex and I’m really looking forward to taking the helm in development finance as we continue to support a broad range of developers to build more much needed homes across England and Wales.”

Alex added: "I am proud to leave the development finance division in great shape — the new team is brimming with talent and capability.

“But I'm thrilled to be swapping my comfy steel toecaps for my blister inducing heels as I return to my roots in specialist mortgages to take HTB’s biggest business to the next level.”
