Zoe Haddon (pictured) joins as a field BDM, and will be working alongside brokers in York, Leeds and Teesside. Haddon has worked at Natwest for 23 years in various roles which include bank manager, personal mortgage adviser and a relationship manager.
Two new phone area sales managers have also been appointed: Michelle Edgley, previously a phone-based BDM with Natwest Intermediary Solutions, and Matt Wetherell, a 2016 British Mortgage Awards winner who has 14 years’ experience in the industry.
Bethany Dowe joins as a phone-based BDM to support brokers in the East of England. She has spent the last two years in the liveTALK team, Natwest’s broker messaging service.
Adam Depledge, who is also coming from the LiveTalk team, is joining as a phone-based BDM covering Lancashire, Yorkshire and Greater Manchester on secondment.
Daniel Zipfel joins as a phone-based BDM to cover the West Country including Bristol. He has been working for the last four years as a personal mortgage adviser within the RBS Group.
Suzie Hayter will be covering Conventry, Leicester and Nottingham as a phone-based BDM. Hayter previously worked as a team manager in Natwest’s direct operation.
These new appointments follow the launch of Natwest’s new BDM model, which pairs field BDMs with phone BDMs to provide more “tailored” broker support.
Mark Bullard, head of sales at Natwest Intermediary Solutions, said: “I am delighted to further increase the geographic coverage we can offer brokers. We now have 53 BDMs working hard to support mortgage intermediaries in our new operational structure.”
“The new additions will bring energy, knowledge and a willingness to help – important qualities needed to be a successful BDM,” Bullard added.
