Jackie Bennett begins as mortgage director at UK Finance
Jackie Bennett OBE started as director of mortgages at UK Finance this week replacing Paul Smee, ex-director general of the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML), as top mortgage appointment and policy lead at the trade body.

Bennett has a long mortgage-focused career, most lately as deputy compliance manager at the Northview Group, compliance conduct manager at GE Home Lending and head of policy for 13 years at the Council of Mortgage Lenders.

Bennett said: “It’s a really exciting time to join UK Finance representing the mortgage industry. I look forward to working alongside the team and with the Mortgage Product and Service Board to ensure housing remains at the top of the agenda.”

Smee continues as a director at Paul Smee consulting and a trustee at the Money Advice Trust.

Ex-CML head of member and external relations, Sue Anderson also started a new role this week at debt charity StepChange. Anderson took a short career break after more than 27 years with the Council of Mortgage Lenders.

The CML integrated with five other bodies in July 2017 to form UK Finance, the new trade association for nearly 300 providers of finance, banking and payments-related services.

In July, UK Finance mortgage product board chairman Peter Hill spoke exclusively to Mortgage Solutions about how the organisation will progress its key strategies.

The new association now represents the Asset Based Finance Association, the British Bankers’ Association, the Council of Mortgage Lenders, FFA UK, Payments UK and the UK Cards Association.
