Prestige expands underwriting team

The pair will work under new business manager, Shelley Connelly.

Simon Stern, director of Prestige Finance, said: “Prestige Finance is working to become the pre-eminent secured loan lender in the intermediary market.

“Since October, we have seen a significant increase in our volumes and not only are we increasing our staff numbers but also putting in new processes, structures and systems to support this growth.”

The intermediary focused lender, which forms part of OneSavings Bank, relaunched in March with a new product range.

Gash joined from Lloyds TSB, having also worked at Loans Engine, while McQueen is rejoining after spending a year’s sabbatical in Australia and South East Asia.
