Bridging lender Hope Capital has appointed its first Managing Director. Gary Bailey, formerly Sales Director of Together. He joins Hope Capital today, 7th January, to help expand and grow the company.
Hope Capital has grown rapidly, having doubled its lending in the past year, increased its staff numbers by 40% and expanded into much larger premises. It also signed up to the Women in Finance Charter and underwent a rebrand. It has plans to more than double its lending again both this year and the year after so Gary’s role will be to help enable this growth.
Gary will be responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of Hope Capital so that CEO Jonathan Sealey can concentrate on the strategic growth of the company. Gary was instrumental in growing Together over a twenty-year period and has over 25 years’ experience in the specialist and complex finance markets, across leadership, banking and finance roles. Every role in Gary’s long and distinguished career has been focused on customers and service excellence which fits perfectly with Hope Capital’s ethos of providing high quality, individual service to every client with transparency, integrity and honesty.
