Brown (pictured) joins Paradigm from Skipton Building Society for Intermediaries, where he held the role of business development manager in London.
In his new role, Brown will be responsible for building relationships with firms in London and the South East, helping Paradigm members grow and develop their businesses.
He will also help recruit new firms to Paradigm’s directly authorised proposition and report to director of membership, Richard Goppy.
Brown joins Paradigm with more than 13 years’ experience in financial services, having held previous financial services sales roles with the Post Office and as a field compliance operations manager with the Mortgage Advice Bureau.
Goppy said: “I’m delighted to have Michael join our team of relationship managers. I was keen to bring in someone who is very well-respected by the advisory community already, and Michael’s experience is exactly what is needed to support our member firms in London and the South East. Plus, he will also support our recruitment strategy in bringing new members to Paradigm.
“Our focus for 2022 is on ensuring all firms we work with are utilising the full range of services and support we offer, which in turn helps them to develop their businesses and add further value to their clients. As Michael has proven in his previous roles, his knowledge and experience will be a huge benefit to all of the businesses that he deals with.”
Brown added: “I am very pleased to be taking up this new role with Paradigm, working with advisory firms in London & the South East, and helping introduce more firms to the wide range of opportunities and benefits available within the proposition.
“Paradigm is a key part of the intermediary distribution landscape and I’m looking forward to working with both new and existing members to help them develop and grow in what is an exciting mortgage and protection market.”
