The role will see Rockett look after brokers operating in the South West, South and Mid-Wales.
He brings with him experience from both the lending and broker side of the market and has previously worked with Barclays and Lloyds. He was also managing director of The Business Mortgage Company (TBMC) for 13 years.
He eventually moved into the specialist buy-to-let market and worked with Paragon Mortgages and Fleet Mortgages.
Rockett said he is “thrilled” to be working at Keystone and looked forward to working with brokers to explain how the products Keystone offers may work for their clients. He added that his history with brokers will allow him to “hit the ground running.”
Head of sales at Keystone, Phil Riches, said the appointment of Rockett was a boost to the team which will ensure brokers in the South West region are visited regularly.
Alongside the recent appointment of Moises Cruickshank as business development manager (BDM) for London and the South East, Riches said Keystone now has a “strong team that can meet the needs of brokers.”
Earlier this month the lender enhanced its lending criteria and lending limits and maximum age restriction on its Classic Range.
