TML has appointed Charlie Stack (pictured) as BDM for the Midlands after he graduated through the firm’s apprenticeship programme.
Stack joined TML a year ago and the lender created an apprenticeship programme to give him the training, practical experience and skills required of a business development manager.
He is also studying towards a CeMAP accreditation to become a qualified UK mortgage adviser.
TML deputy chief executive Peter Beaumont said: “Charlie impressed us. It’s the first time we’ve taken on an apprentice in the sales team, but we’d do it again.
“The truth is you can teach anyone the main principles of working in the mortgage industry, but you can’t teach someone the right attitude of a good business development manager. Charlie is a natural business development manager and he’s thriving.”
Stack added: “I’m very appreciative of the opportunity The Mortgage Lender has given me and even more so that they’ve invested in my career development by offering me the role of business development manager.”
He will report to sales director Ross Turrell.
Turrell said: “We have expanded our team of BDMs throughout 2018 and the addition of Chris, where he’ll cover our range of relationships in the North East, is a real boost to the business in that area.
“He has a wealth of knowledge and experience working in financial services, and covering a range of mortgage-related areas, but he also has strong relationship-building skills, and will be absolutely committed to helping and supporting our broker contacts in the North East.”
