Wayne Fitzpatrick spent over a year underwriting in the head office, after joining the lender in March 2018 and prior to this was an underwriter at Complete Cover Group.
He will be responsible for working across a number of specialist distribution firms in-house and providing access to underwriting expertise across Fleet’s range of products and criteria.
He will also work with Fleet’s London sales team, providing technical training and supporting their work with their advisory relationships in the region.
Steve Cox, distribution director of Fleet Mortgages, said: “Wayne has been a key part of the underwriting team at Fleet for over a year but as we have grown the number of packager and distributor relationships, we felt it was important to provide access to onsite underwriting expertise.”
He added: “Specialist distributor partners in London and the South East will now benefit from having access to Wayne so they can develop their understanding of Fleet’s criteria and product knowledge, having someone on hand to ensure they get the best support and resource for their buy-to-let cases. This is a new string to the Fleet bow as we continue to ramp up our increasing commitment to the specialist distributor sector.”
