HTB welcomes Alan Coleman as development finance lending director

Hampshire Trust Bank (HTB) has hired Alan Coleman (pictured above) as a lending director within its development finance division.

In his new role, Alan is tasked with securing new development finance business for the bank, with the aim of developing those relationships into longer-term partnerships.

He joins HTB from West One, where he was a portfolio manager, taking development finance cases from initial enquiry to completion.

Commenting on his new role, Alan said: “Now more than ever, developers and housebuilders need to be able to work with a lender which genuinely has a strong appetite to lend and the funds to match.

“With HTB ticking both of those boxes, it certainly helps with my task of supporting developers in the pursuit of denting the unrelenting demand for housing in the UK.”

Alex Upton, managing director of development finance at HTB, added: “Developing our regional relationships into deeper partnerships is an integral part of our proposition and Alan offers the skills to do exactly that.

“Delivering bespoke development finance products with the exceptional service we have become known for can only be achieved by attracting the right talent across the regions.”
