Flude (pictured) joins with immediate effect from Fleet Mortgages, where he was BDM for the South East,
He began his career as an adviser with a national estate agency chain and has more than 12 years’ experience in the mortgage market.
He has a wide network of adviser contacts and will be focused on building relationships in the region.
Flude will report to national sales manager Mark Whitear, and will be focused on presenting Foundation’s range of buy-to-let and residential mortgage products to advisers based in the South Central region.
Foundation’s products are offered to individuals, portfolio landlords and limited companies and include the recently-launched Fix to Flex five-year buy-to-let deal.
Andrew Ferguson, commercial director at Foundation Home Loans, said: “The addition of Paul adds considerably to our overall strength in sales.
“Paul comes with a vast amount of experience and he has also worked as an adviser so knows both sides of the fence.
“We believe he will be an excellent asset to both Foundation and advisers in the South, and I would urge those within the region to contact him to see how he can support their business activity.”
