Katie Quigley (pictured left) joins Foundation as regional area manager for South Wales and the West. Prior to this, she was a key account manager at Virgin Money and she was advice team manager at the Bank of Ireland.
Jack Gerasimov (pictured right) has been promoted from internal business development manager (BDM) to regional area manager for the South. Quigley and Gerasimov will report to head of sale Mark Whitear.
Foundation has also named three new BDMs within the internal team. They are: Ikram Pervez, who will cover the Midlands with Keith Jones; Waquas Ai, who covering the South, with Gerasimov; and Josh Evans who will team up with Vicky Pearce to cover the South East.
All three will report to Foundation’s internal sales manager Gavin Kyle.
Foundation said expansion of its sales team came off the back of successful business growth in 2019 and aims to ensure the lender continues to meet growth targets throughout 2020 and beyond.
Whitear said: “It’s very pleasing to be announcing the expansion of our sales team at the start of 2020. We saw significant growth during the last year and we have plenty of plans for the year ahead to ensure we continue to develop effective and sustainable relationships with our intermediary partners.
“In order to retain our position as a lender that’s always available and can provide real flexibility we need quality people. It’s therefore exciting to announce the recruitment of Katie and promotion of Jack to regional account manager roles, plus our three new internal BDMs, who will provide a range of support and resources to all our intermediary partners.”
