A banker has joined the Manchester based Together as its corporate relationship director covering the North West. Alex Bodie, who has worked in financial services for 22 years, will be responsible for nurturing existing relationships and widening the network of corporate clients and advisers.
The former Lloyds banker will operate from Cumbria to North Wales, in Together’s growing corporate relationship team, set up to provide customers with finance of more than £1million.
Alex, who lives on the Wirral, said, “I can’t wait to get started at Together. I’ve been impressed with the group’s growth plans, particularly through its corporate channel, and I believe my experience will help the business realise its future ambitions.
“During a career of two decades in banking, I have established a wide network of clients, who I’m sure will be interested in learning more about Together’s fantastic proposition.”
Previously a relationship director at Lombard and a branch manager at CitiFinancial, Alex will report to Andrew Charnley, who joined Together from Lloyds as its head of corporate relationships.
Andrew Charnley said, “Alex will be a fantastic addition to the corporate relationship team and the wider group as the business continues its expansion. He has a wealth of knowledge of corporate finance and a real talent for building relationships with a wide range of clients, which I’m sure will be of huge benefit to our business.”
