Linklater has nearly 20 years’ experience in financial services, working across brands such as Money Advice Group, Lloyds Banking Group and a previous stint at Magellan as business development manager.
His experience encompasses field and direct mortgage sales, commercial, bridging, loyalty schemes and two years working as a broker.
Linklater said he was excited to be back at Magellan.
“The ethos at Magellan has always been about providing a high quality personal service, tailored to individual needs that can’t be met by the high street. That hasn’t changed and fits exactly with the service I want to provide.”
Sales director Jason Neale added: “It’s great to have Dean back on the team. His experience and expertise across the mortgage sector, including time spent as a broker, means he really understands the needs of our customers and how best to support them.
“He’s already hit the ground running and will definitely add value to the service we provide to our clients.”
