The four appointments, who all joined Mortgage Brain since September last year, include Matt Surridge, formerly a business assurance manager at Countrywide, ex-Iress software developer Geoff Webb and previous Hinckley and Rugby Building Society national key account manager Phil Daffern.
Gemma Lang, an ex-Kensington business development manager, joined the national account management team in early January.
Mortgage Brain said the new recruits brought experience and knowledge from their previous roles and would play a key role in broadening it’s relationships with customers, future customers and business partners.
Lang said she was very excited to be joining Mortgage Brain and was delighted to have the opportunity to play an important role in the continued development and growth of the business.
Mark Lofthouse, CEO of Mortgage Brain, (pictured) said: “Our four new national account managers bring experience, expert skills and in-depth knowledge of the market, adding yet further strength and capability to our existing team.”
Gatehouse bolsters business support team
Meanwhile, Gatehouse Bank has appointed Sonam Pathak and Neha Nadhvana to its home finance underwriting team as well as Ben Faulkner as business support manager.
Pathak brings more than seven years’ banking experience to her role, having previously held positions at Coventry, Barclays and Santander. Nadhvana is a further strong addition to the team, having spent 14 years as an underwriter at Nationwide Building Society.
Both will be based at Gatehouse’s Milton Keynes office, alongside Fulker, who will help manage the bank’s operational needs across its finance teams.
These appointments follow increased demand for Gatehouse Bank’s products and services.
The bank expanded its range to include a commercial finance proposition in November and entered the residential market in December with its Shariah-compliant alternative to a conventional mortgage.
Karen Faulkner, head of home finance operations at Gatehouse Bank, said: “We are delighted to have Sonam, Neha and Ben join the Gatehouse team.
“All three of them are highly experienced and represent the continued strengthening of our rapidly expanding Milton Keynes operation.”
