Phillips joined the company last week, while Ferrier and Whiteley took up their posts in the summer. In their new roles, they will provide “complete support and backing” to Just Mortgages’ self-employed brokers, according to the firm.
Phillips will cover the North West and North Wales, looking after up to 30 advisers.
He said: “The advisers are self-employed, but they get so much support and training. I am looking forward to being a part of that culture, and helping my team to grow their businesses, be effective and compliant and achieve a happy work-life balance.”
Phillips has more than a decade of experience in the mortgage industry and seven years’ in sales management; his previous roles include area business banking manager at HSBC, financial services manager at Reeds Rains and most recently, key account manager for the North West at Tesco Bank.
West Midlands and South East
Preeti will be responsible for around 35 brokers in the West Midlands region. She has been a broker for 20 years.
“I enjoy sharing my knowledge and expertise with the consultants on how to be a successful adviser. Having been a broker myself for so long, I am in a good position to be able to support them. I want to do everything I can to help them excel; I love seeing them succeed,” she commented.
Whiteley has more than 17 years’ experience in the financial services and mortgage industry. She started her career at Portman Building Society and worked as area sales manager at Nationwide and risk manager at St James’ Place before moving to Countrywide in 2012.
Whiteley worked there for seven years, as senior regional manager and executive regional manager, supervising both Countrywide and Capital and Private Finance brokers, before joining Just Mortgages. She will be responsible for up to 35 brokers in the South East region.
“The growth of the business over the last few years has been amazing, with so many successful brokers building great businesses in an environment tailored to their own individual needs. I am looking forward to being a part of the success and taking this opportunity to help brokers build their own business and manage their own client experience,” she said.
Continued growth goals
The Just Mortgages self-employed division was set up by Carl Parker (pictured) in June 2016 and now numbers 205 brokers, with expectation of reaching 240 by New Year.
He said: “As more brokers come on board, we will continue to increase the number of managers to ensure our brokers can enjoy the best of both worlds; the flexibility of owning their own business with the help and support of a dedicated and experienced sales manager.”
Earlier this month the firm appointed three sales directors while in August it announced an expansion into commercial mortgages advice.
