Hughes has been with the business for over seven years, with experience in the bridging and commercial sectors; he is now tasked with driving significant growth.
Barney Drake, chief executive of Specialist Mortgage Group, said: “As a professional with many years’ experience in the field and with such a high level of respect from his peers, Liam’s promotion to head the team was an easy decision to make.
“He has a huge amount to contribute in order to help grow the business very quickly to an unprecedented level without compromising quality.”
Hughes added: “The team here are, in my opinion, some of the most motivated and competent staff in the industry and we are seeking to achieve great things in this space.
“At a time when we are seeing unprecedented growth, my role will mainly involve reviewing our internal processes and procedures to drive up efficiency.
“With this in mind, we will also be recruiting the very highest standard of staff to complement the strength of the team.”
In March 2021, SMG acquired the full share capital of Y3S Bridging & Commercial from its founding directors and was brought together with YSS Loans within its Cardiff-based headquarters.
