Carton (pictured), comes from Natwest where she has over eight years’ experience, having previously worked for Edeus Mortgage Creators and Birmingham Midshires.
Sedgwick’s departure from Leeds BS was announced in May when it was revealed she would be moving to Belmont Green, also known as Vida Homeloans, as director of sales for mortgages.
Jaedon Green, Leeds Building Society’s director of product and distribution, said: “I am delighted to welcome Martese to Leeds Building Society’s intermediary team.
“Martese brings with her a passion for intermediary mortgage lending, which aligns well with our values and appetite for continued growth in what will continue to be a competitive market place.
“Martese will build on the remarkable growth achieved over the last three years, and lead the next phase of our intermediary strategy.”
Carton is currently working her notice period at Natwest. A spokeswoman for Leeds BS said Carton is due to start in mid-September.
