Prior to his stint at Paragon, Hall worked for CHL Mortgages where he was business development manager. His career in the mortgage industry has spanned over 12 years, with specific experience of working on complex buy-to-let cases.
Landbay said the latest hire further demonstrated its commitment to expansion – it has plans to increase headcount by 70% this summer to support the growing pipeline.
Lending volumes continue to increase from month to month, and the company is well on track to hit profitability in the third quarter of this year, it said.
Hall commented: “I’m looking forward to bringing my experience to the business, strengthening its reputation as a leading specialist lender at a time of rapid growth for the company and sector as a whole.”
Paul Brett, managing director intermediaries at Landbay, added: “Ian is well respected in the market and his expertise will play a crucial role in growing our broker relationships, further cementing our position in the market. His unique understanding of complex buy-to-let will bring much value to what is an already dynamic team.”
