All About Adam Brand

Operations Director

I formed First Union in 1998 and between me and my senior team, we have a combined experience of some 60 years selling and completing Loans. I have brought together a team of individuals who work closely to allow our business levels to increase whilst our service levels improve. My key area of work is to continually identify, develop and ultimately oversee all existing relationships, whilst maximising our ability to meet targets and notably client expectations throughout the Company.
At First Union we pride ourselves in offering a comprehensive, efficient and friendly service which is seldom rivalled.

All About Michelle Tuvey

Loan Underwriter

Michelle started working at First Union in 2001, the same week she received her NI number!  Working initially as part of our call centre team, she was promoted to underwriting where she distinguished herself as being the top underwriter more often than not.  With a strong desire to ensure that our clients get their secured loans funded as quickly as possible, Michelle has devised several processes and protocols over the years, helping ensure where as far as possible our clients enjoy a swift and seamless process from application to funding.  Having taken a break to start her family, Michelle returned as Head of Underwriting and has been leading her team through the many recent changes in regulation with a confidence and ease that can only come with the depth of experience in this industry that she enjoys.   

All About Melinda (Milli) Haine

Loan Underwriter

From day one, Milli made her mark at First Union, building on her previous experience as a lettings agent and developing her secured loan knowledge at a rapid rate.  Within months she became the team’s best performer  - given that she had her powerboat license and had learnt to fly a glider before she could drive a car, her enjoyment of challenges and her drive to succeed were obvious from the start.  Being promoted to Team Leader has only encouraged her to exceed expectations and both Milli and  her team constantly strive to provide a first class sales support service to our Financial Consultants as well as being a polite, friendly and knowledgeable first point of contact for all our clients at First Union. With client service at the forefront of what we do, Milli ensures that she keeps up to date with all changes in policy and lending criteria, delivering regular training sessions and carries out one to one monitoring and feedback meetings.
