Evans (pictured) will be responsible for relationships with all residential intermediaries and represent Aldermore across the wider lending market. He will be responsible for developing and leading both the field and telephone intermediary sales forces.
He joins Aldermore having led a very successful career with the RBS Group spanning over 30 years. Roger is best known for having played a pivotal role in the initial expansion of the NatWest Intermediary mortgage business where he rose to head of intermediary mortgages.
Most lately, Evans was head of sales at NatWest and RBS, according to Linked in.
Charles Haresnape, Aldermore’s group managing director, mortgages, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Roger to Aldermore. He has a huge amount of invaluable experience that will complement the work that we as a specialist lender continue to do.”
Roger Evans, head of intermediary distribution, said: “It’s a great time and opportunity to be joining Aldermore. Over the past seven years, they’ve developed an excellent reputation across the industry and wider broker market. I’m looking forward to this role and the challenges over the coming years.
New mortgage lending from Aldermore surged 24% in the year to the end of quarter three, to reach £1.5bn against the same period the previous year.
In November, Aldermore’s interims reported gross mortgage lending had been driven upwards by its use of the Bank of England’s Term Funding Scheme, which was launched this year. Aldermore was the first bank to begin using the scheme in September.
