Bluestone promotes Downey to head of business development
Niamh Downey has been promoted to head of business development as part of the business’ ongoing strategy to expand its proposition and provide greater support to intermediaries across the country.


Niamh Downey has worked with Bluestone Mortgages since 2019 and was previously a business development team manager.

Since joining the specialist lender she helped grow and develop its London based telephony BDM team and also helped establish a second team in Sheffield.

In her new role, she manages both BDM teams, in addition to the the broker support team, heading up all telephony activity. 

Downey will be responsible for delivering sales targets, coaching and training the business development team and broker support team. Bluestone said her role will include enhancing the broker experience, as well as identifying and developing new business opportunities.

Secured and unsecured loans


Bluestone Mortgages, is the residential lending arm of Bluestone Group, a European specialist lending and fintech business which has  its  headquarters in Cambridge and offices in London, Sheffield and Dublin. 

The group employs 225 employees and specialises in secured and unsecured loan origination, portfolio servicing and cloud-based technology development.

Downey said:  “I’m excited to get stuck into my new role and continue to help Bluestone better serve our intermediaries and their customers. I’m looking forward to leveraging my experience in the BDM team to build and develop relationships with our broker partners which in turn will allow us to further strengthen our proposition and support a growing number of disenfranchised customers.”

Reece Beddall, sales and marketing director at Bluestone Mortgages, said: “Niamh’s promotion is a testament to her hard work and determination. Over the last few years, Niamh has been critical in helping Bluestone provide support to our brokers and expand our proposition and I’m certain her experience will help us to continue to expand our offerings and provide greater financial assistance to a growing number of ‘non-vanilla’ customers.”
