Hope Capital has taken on five new staff and a head of marketing as part of its growth strategy, tripling the size of its business development team.
The new staff will predominantly take up business development roles, with a focus on providing more direct and hands on support to brokers. This will enable Hope Capital to maintain its high levels of service even while continuing to grow rapidly.
Emma Tempest is joining to look after the Midlands and East Anglia, while Stephen Allen will look after brokers in the South West and Wales. This will complement the existing BDM team with Maria Magnussen in London and the South East and Wayne Lee who looks after the north of England.
The external BDM team will be assisted by an expanded internal team whose role it is to help brokers with case submissions, ensuring they can always speak to someone on the phone and cases are turned around as quickly as possible. Two new faces will join the team with Christopher Buckley joining this week and Debbie Wilson joining in a month’s time. They will be the first point of contact for the growing numbers of brokers phoning into Hope Capital for help and advice and information on how Hope Capital can help their clients.
