Beverley BS hires head of new business lending in strategy to ‘prioritise’ brokers
Beverley Building Society has appointed Simon Glass head of new business lending, making him the mutual’s first business development manager.


Glass joined the mutual on 4 January and has worked for a number of high street lenders with his most recent role being business development manager at TSB for three years. 

He also worked at Santander as a senior mortgage adviser for a year, before moving on to Barclays where he was high migration lead for four years then head of pricing implementation and tariff control for nearly two years. 

In total, his experience spans over 20 years’ in financial services including 12 in the mortgage sector.

At Beverley BS, Glass will have the responsibility of developing relationships with brokers and giving feedback to the mutual on product and policy ideas. 

Glass (pictured) said: “I was ready for a new challenge and my role at the Beverley will certainly give me that. 

“I’m passionate about mortgages and one of the things I love most is building relationships with brokers and seeing them blossom from nothing into something mutually beneficial.” 

He added: “Being involved in policy and product development as well will enable me to offer a 360-degree service to brokers, by helping to find solutions to the things they are telling me, which I believe is so important. The synergy this new job offers between relationship-building and being able to influence the solutions we bring to market, to meet brokers’ needs, was an opportunity I couldn’t say no to.” 

The mutual said Glass’ appointment was its first step in prioritising brokers and catering to under-served borrowers. 

Beverley Building Society’s chief executive, Karl Elliott, said: “Simon’s appointment will enable us to offer an even better service to this hugely important audience. By providing our valued intermediaries with a go-to point of contact to listen to their experiences and needs, and then act as a conduit between them and the society’s key decision-makers, he will help us ensure we continuously adapt our offering to suit [brokers] and their clients. 

“This will further strengthen our commitment to going out of our way to find ways to say ‘yes’, whenever possible.”
