Accord adds BDMs and underwriters
Accord Mortgages has expanded its sales and underwriting teams by appointing four field-based business development managers (BDMs).

The lender has also hired several business development and sales staff and added 45 underwriters to its team.

Andrew Calder is the new BDM for Scotland East, including Edinburgh. Russell Maggs has been appointed BDM for the Thames Valley area, including Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. Eloise Tovey will support brokers on the South Coast, whilst Mike Houston will cover the South East.

Gemma Nash and Jennifer Hadwin have joined the telephone business development teams, with Chris Hill appointed regional sales manager for the south and Alan Luther as corporate account manager for new build.

Accord national intermediary sales manager David Robinson (pictured) said the appointments grew its broker support service through several channels including face-to-face, telephone, or web chat.

“We have also expanded our underwriting team to further develop the support we offer brokers, with common-sense lending decisions and direct access to the people making those decisions,” he added.
