Mitri (pictured, right) is taking the role of buy-to-let manager.
Walsh said: “It’s a really exciting time at Together as the business continues to grow, and I wanted to be part of that journey.
“I had worked with the team previously, so was familiar with Together’s products and felt my skills would be an asset to the commercial side of the business.”
And Mitri said: “The buy-to-let sector continues to perform well and the creation of this new role is testament to Together’s commitment to its commercial growth plans.
“I had worked with Together, on the broker side, for over a decade, so I have a good knowledge of the business and a rounded understanding of the lending process.”
Walsh has over 15 years’ experience in financial services, with previous roles at the Accident Credit Group.
Lloyds Banking Group and Morgan Stanley’s Advantage Home Loans.
Mitri meanwhile has over 12 years’ experience in underwriting, and joins from V Loans, where she focused on both residential and buy-to-let second charge mortgages.
