In her role, she will engage with potential and existing partner firms and advisers to examine how they use Air products. This includes Air Club, Air Sourcing and Air Academy.
Palmer most recently worked at Canada Life for nearly three years, latterly as a key account manager.
Prior to that she was a mortgage arrears specialist at Capital Home Loans for just over a year and has also worked at RBS and John Charcol.
Jon Tweed, distribution director at Air, said: “Nicola is a great addition to the team and I am looking forward to working closely with her.
“Air is committed to supporting all brokers and lenders operating in the later life lending sector, no matter how large or small and Nicola will be an integral part of strengthening and deepening our relationships with both new and existing contacts moving forward.”
Palmer added: “I am thrilled to be joining Air at such an interesting time for the business. Air recently relaunched its proposition at the National Later Life Conference as well as revamped its adviser CPD training programme via Air Academy.
“There are lots more exciting developments happening behind the scenes at Air and I can’t wait to get out there and discuss these propositions with new and existing contacts.”
