Kensington Mortgages hires Jayne Almond as chair
Kensington Mortgages, part of The Northview Group, has appointed Jayne Almond as its new chair, succeeding Tim Breedon.


However, Breedon will be keeping his role as chair of holding company The Northview Group.

Additionally, Almond will also be joining The Northview Group as independent non-executive director.

She currently holds a number of directorships, including chair of Butterfield Mortgages and GKBK. She is also an honorary fellow at St Hilda’s College, Oxford University.

Almond worked at Lloyds TSB as managing director for European internet banking for four years and at Barclays Bank as director of business development for UK retail bank.

Breedon said that the team is thrilled to have Jayne Almond on board.

He added: “The specialist mortgage market is booming due to profound socio-demographic shifts, in particular, the rise of the self-employed and multiple income workers and an increase in demand for mortgages for over 55 year olds. Jayne’s appointment signals our desire to grow rapidly to meet this demand.”
