In his role, Morris will oversee building intermediary mortgage business and leading the team. He will report directly to Steve Beard, who is the managing director of the mortgage division.
Morris left OSB Group in August this year, having worked at the firm for around 12 years.
Morris initially worked at Precise Mortgages and helped build the specialist lender firm, and then with its integration into OSB Group.
He held the role of group distribution director at OSB Group and then was director of group lending engagement.
Before joining OSB Group, he was a sales and marketing director for just over two years at Affirmative Mortgages and previously worked at em-financial as managing director for around eight years.
Tandem: ‘Delighted he chose us’
Beard said: “Roger’s wealth of industry experience across all sectors of the market and his proven ability to deliver at the highest level are apparent for all to see.
“His engagement with the intermediary market at all levels and his commitment to educating and informing brokers about the technical and regulatory complexities surrounding channels such as buy to let, have made him well known across the industry. We are delighted he chose to join us.”
Morris said: “Tandem Bank has serious plans to become a premier division player with multiple lending channels that cover every requirement that a broker might be asked for by his clients. The chance to plan and oversee the establishment of Tandem as a major force in the market was too good to pass up.
“I am excited about Tandem’s prospects and looking forward to building the mortgage division so it can take its place at the top table of specialist lenders.”
