This is the network’s fourth major appointment in the last month. Gavin Earnshaw joined as compliance director, Lauren Bagley as head of marketing and Heddwyn Richards as national accounts manager with more to be confirmed shortly.
Benjamin (pictured) has also held roles as national account manager for both Santander and Alliance & Leicester.
She has been tasked by the Right Mortgage and Protection Network to help establish and enhance the network’s panel of lenders. She will also work with the both lenders and advisers to maximise the quality and accuracy of business that is submitted by the network’s advisers and DA firms.
Martin Wilson said: “Jane’s experience of working for both a network and lenders will be a huge asset, as she appreciates and understands the expectations of both sides of the relationship. Our mission is to work side by side with our members, as well as our lenders and providers, in order to ensure that our network is driving the right result for customers, while also meeting the needs of our advisers.”
Benjamin said she plans to build on what The Right Mortgage and Protection Network has already achieved in its first 12 months.
“I am looking forward to working with lenders again in this new capacity by forging long lasting, two-way relationships that strengthen our proposition and our support to our members.”
The Right Mortgage and Protection Network was established in August 2014 and has attracted over 120 members in its first year.
It received network authorisation in February 2015.
