Together hires commercial property heavyweight as its new lending director

23 April 2018

An expert with more than two decades’ experience in the commercial property market has been appointed to a new role in our commercial department.

Robert Goodall joins as lending director and will be based at our headquarters in Cheadle, south Manchester.

An experienced chartered surveyor, he takes up his new role next month (May) after running his own company for more than 12 years, advising on the purchase, asset management and disposal of commercial property across the UK.

Robert was involved in deals worth nearly £30 million in the past 12 months as director of his company, Goodall Investments Ltd.

The 44-year-old said: “I’ve been self-employed for more than 12 years and have invested all of my time building up my own successful company, so I knew it would have to be a very special opportunity for me to change roles.

“When I came to Together, I was really impressed with the size and the scale of the business as it is. However, seeing its ambitious plans, and where it could go over the next three to five years, has confirmed I’ve made the right decision. I’ll be joining an already-strong team and having the chance to help to grow the business will be fantastic.”

Robert started his working career in 1993 as a surveyor for Darryl Lee & Co before becoming a director with EP2, later joining NAI Fuller Peiser, where he handled major property deals on behalf of high net worth clients. He also has a vast experience of development finance, having acted as a consultant for Goldentree Financial Services, set up by bookmaker Fred Done and his brother Peter.

In his new role, he will be responsible for planning, organising and directing our commercial lending operations.

Marc Goldberg, our commercial CEO, said: “Robert is somebody who has more than 20 years of experience as a chartered surveyor and not only deeply understands the property business but also has a wide-ranging knowledge of finance.

“He is a great addition to the team and will be able to work together with his strong network of clients, as well as Together’s existing customers and introducers, in making lending decisions and delivering our message of common sense lending across the UK.”

A keen marathon runner, Robert is set to take part in a tailor-made half-marathon this weekend (April 28) with Michael Stratton, one of our colleagues, and three other friends, in memory of a mutual friend who passed away in December.

They have already raised £40,000 in sponsorship, which will go towards one of the UK’s leading cardiothoracic wards at Manchester’s Wythenshawe Hospital.
