Together appoints director of corporate and community housing

Alex Bodie has been promoted at the Cheadle-based lending firm, with his new role focussed on providing commercial mortgages of up to £10m and bridging finance of up to £15m.

Bodie joined Together in 2019 as the corporate relationship director, going up the ranks to take on the role of head of social housing and, later, director of community housing and healthcare.

Bodie has more than 25 years of experience in banking and finance, having also worked at CitiFinancial, Lloyds Banking Group, and Premier Asset Finance.

As the director of corporate and community housing, Bodie will be working with social housing providers, corporates, SMEs, and Together’s healthcare clients. He will lead a team of nine and covering the North West, Yorkshire, the Midlands, London, the South, and Scotland.

Regarding his appointment, Bodie said: “I’m incredibly proud of what our community housing and healthcare team has achieved in terms of providing homes for vulnerable people across the country and this knowledge and experience will be invaluable in my new role overseeing the corporate sector also.

“The expanded remit provides the opportunity to build on the strong fundamentals already in place in promoting our corporate proposition,” he continued.

“However, the team will also seek opportunities where Together can continue to support the key sectors of community housing and healthcare, to improve and empower even more communities.”

Marc Goldberg, chief executive of sales and distribution at Together, described Bodie’s new role as a “fantastic opportunity to integrate community housing and healthcare into our corporate sales team”.

Goldberg added: “The new role will encourage a joined-up approach, with direct links from the new team to valuation, credit and risk teams, allowing us to make quick decisions and provide the fast and flexible finance that we’re known for.

“As a specialist lender, we’ve spent the past 50 years identifying opportunities in niche markets and we are seeing a huge demand for corporate finance as well as from clients looking to develop or acquire much-needed social housing to ease the severe lack of house-building across the UK.”

Together boasts more than 750 employees and has a loan book of £7bn.
