Jackie Uhi, managing director, regulated customer advice will continue to be responsible for both teams.
A spokesman said: “We recognise the importance of intermediaries to our business and we are pleased to confirm this will now be managed by two intermediary partnership directors – Stephen Banks and Alun Donovan. This will allow for greater shared collaboration between our national account managers and our intermediary relationship managers.
“Sarah Green, head of national accounts, has taken the decision to pursue other opportunities.”
He added: “We have been open and transparent with these changes and have proactively engaged with our key strategic partners – and their day to day contact remains unchanged.”
Key accounts firms have been informed of the changes over the last few days.
In mid-March, David Finlay, managing director of the intermediary channel for retail lending at Barclays, resigned his position and stepped down as chairman of the Intermediary Mortgage Lenders Association.
