HSBC appoints Uhi to head up mortgage distribution
HSBC has appointed Jackie Uhi as its head of mortgage distribution, after she quit her role as MD of mortgage distribution at Barclays in July 2016 after two-and-a-half years.

Uhi held several senior positions at Barclays before taking up the role of head of mortgages including network director, looking after the branch network across the east of England.

Before joining Barclays, Uhi spent two years as regional director for Lloyds TSB, between April 2010 and April 2012.

Uhi begins her role on Monday 13 February and will be managing the bank’s UK mortgage and protection distribution team across branches, contact centres and intermediaries.

The appointment follows HSBC’s entry to the intermediary market in August 2015 and supports the bank’s plans to further expand its intermediary partnerships in 2017.

Within the new structure, Chris Pearson continues to lead intermediary distribution after senior leadership positions within RBS/NatWest, BM Solutions and Halifax Intermediary businesses.

Tracie Pearce, HSBC UK’s head of secured lending, said: “I am extremely pleased to have someone with Jackie’s experience and leadership qualities joining the team. Jackie’s appointment comes at an important time for us following an extremely successful year, and is testament to our commitment to grow our mortgage lending across both direct and intermediary channels.”

Uhi said: “I’m extremely excited to be joining HSBC, its distribution channels are developing all the time, as are its broker relationships. HSBC has demonstrated its commitment to the intermediary channel after being a direct only business, and what they have achieved in such a short space of time is no mean feat. I will be looking to build on that, making sure the house buying process for our customers is as seamless and frictionless as possible.”

Prior to Barclays, Jackie was a senior leader overseas with ANZ as the managing director of retail – Pacific region, a general manager of retail strategy and deposits, and with experience of heading up a call centre.

Jackie has also been the co-chair of Barclays’ Women’s Network and Diversity Council Steering member and a member of Mortgage Solutions’ Ladies Executive Club.
