The two field-based BDMs are Tim Gunning, who will be covering London and the South East, and Karen McGrath, who is covering the North West and Northern Ireland.
Gunning was a BDM for Lloyds Banking Group before working at Skipton Intermediaries for three years, while McGrath worked as a commercial account manager at Mellor’s Group for three years, before joining Key Retirement as a BDM.
Digital Mortgages by Atom offers a range of residential lending through selected intermediary partners including criteria that supports the self-employed, contractors, lending into retirement, purchase, remortgage, shared ownership, first-time-buyers and new-build properties, with buy-to-let mortgages coming soon.
Director of retail mortgages, Maria Harris, said: “Brokers have told us they value good BDMs, which is why we only recruit the very best to join our team. We strongly believe that offering mortgages via intermediaries will give customers the best service and the best advice when choosing a mortgage.”
Atom Bank has seven field-based and seven telephone-based business development managers to support intermediaries across the UK.
Atom launched into the intermediary mortgage market in December last year, exclusively reported by Mortgage Solutions (see below). It is distributing initially through Legal & General’s key account firms and LSL networks Pink and First Complete and plans to broaden broker relationships over time.
