Hammond (pictured), who joined Kensington in 2006, will join Castle Trust as head of marketing from 26 September.
Hammond said: “I have had a thoroughly enjoyable 10 years at Kensington Mortgages and I am proud at all we have achieved. But the time has come for me to embark on an exciting new chapter and I’m looking forward to spreading awareness and greater understanding of Castle Trust’s unique proposition.”
Matthew Wyles, executive director at Castle Trust, added: “Because the Castle Trust mortgage proposition is all about building bespoke solutions for our clients, we needed a really high calibre individual to run our mortgage marketing function. We found that person in Alex who will play a pivotal role in driving our future growth.”
Amy Silburn, who works alongside Hammond in marketing and events, is also leaving North View Group, but has not confirmed onward plans.
In January, Kensington Group rebranded to The Northview Group, ahead of its launch of New Street Mortgages, with Keith Street being promoted to vice chairman across the group.
Prior to the rebrand, Kensington, formerly owned by Investec, was purchased for £180m by private equity partners Blackstone Tactical Opportunities and TPG Special Situations Partners.
Last month Northview Group’s distribution director David Finlay and New Street’s sales and distribution director Adrian Whittaker, exited the business shortly after helping to launch New Street.
