Gatehouse Bank has expanded its residential property finance team with the appointment of Mehwish Mirza (pictured above) as its business development manager for residential home finance.
Mehwish has joined the specialist bank from Together – where she was also a business development manager – and held the same role for seven years at Al Rayan Bank.
She will be working across the North of England and Wales, having previously provided residential Sharia-compliant finance in the North West while at Al Rayan.
“My previous roles have all helped me grow on a national scale, which will work in my favour to offer a range of Sharia-compliant products at Gatehouse Bank,” said Mehwish.
“I am pleased to join the bank at this exciting time, and look forward to contributing to the growing team.”
The appointment comes on the back of Gatehouse hiring Sim Gill and Mehraj Bari to its residential property finance team as part of its expansion into the sector.
Paul Stockwell, chief commercial officer at Gatehouse, added: “I am delighted to welcome Mehwish and her experience will be hugely beneficial for our customer engagement.”
