Key Group appoints national account manager; Skipton hires TBDM – round-up 
Key Group, which encompasses later life brands More 2 Life, Key Partnerships and Air, has appointed Alistair Morrison as one of its national account managers.


Morrison has also 10 years’ experience in account management, including six years at Paymentshield as its business development manager and later, regional sales manager. 

At Key, he will have the responsibility of working with the networks, clubs and service providers Key has partnered with. 

Morrison will also manage the running of each of the group’s brands accounts. He will report to business development director, Jason Ruse. 

Morrison (pictured) said: “I am delighted to be joining the team at Key Group. This role felt like a natural progression for me to utilise my experience in strengthening business relationships, as well as helping Key Group achieve its long-term ambitions for growth.  

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to work with the acknowledged leader in the sector.” 

Ruse added: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Alistair to the group as one of our national account managers. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience that we know will be an asset to our expanding team.  

“With such a wide range of brands, it’s important to ensure we have a strong point of contact who can nurture our existing relationships as well as build new ones. We’re very much looking forward to working with Alistair.” 


Skipton hires TBDM 

Skipton Building Society has appointed Emma Wilkinson as telephone business development manager (BDM) and promoted Amana Mandzuik into the newly created role of criteria systems specialist.  

Wilkinson joined from Skipton’s direct mortgage team and will work with firms in the South West region. 

Mandzuik will maintain and update the mutual’s criteria across both internal systems and in collaboration with its external partners. 

The mutual said it will make more appointments for field BDMs to cover London and the Northern regions.

Wilkinson said: “I am really excited to join the BDM team and can’t wait to start building relationships and supporting brokers.” 

Paul Fenn, Skipton’s head of business development, said Wilkinson’s appointment was an example of how Skipton is determined to support brokers. 

He said: “At Skipton we’re in growth mode right now. We’re increasing our BDM team and continuing with our aspiration to become a top 10 lender. We’ve also created a new role designed to make sure criteria and policy change is up to date, accurate and more dynamic as we exit the world of Covid. 

“We’ve invested a lot in tech over last two or three years, too. Automated valuation models, auto ID and electronic income verification to name but a few. And we’ll continue to invest and improve in our technology, so it helps to streamline what we need from the adviser and complements our BDM relationships.”
