Emily Fox joins from estate agent Sharman Quinney where she was mortgage services sales manager for a year and a half. She also worked at Connells Group as finance services trainer for three and a half years, and was a senior mortgage consultant at Connells for nearly three years. Prior to that, she worked at Natwest for four years, most recently as a mortgage consultant.
At Just Mortgages, Fox will work alongside Duncan Jones in its Taurus division to support estate agency brokers in the M1 region.
Sharman Apps has 15 years in financial services, including roles at Santander, Embrace Financial Services, Countrywide and Mortgage First where she was a branch manager. At Just, he will work across Kent in its Orion division under managing director John Doughty.
Mortgage brokers Nicole Cox and Adam Davis have been promoted internally to become divisional sales directors.
Fox will operate in the Norfolk region while Davis will work across new build and shared ownership cases.
John Phillips (pictured), CEO of Spicerhaart and Just Mortgages, said: “The employed division continues to be a high-performing part of our business, bringing together talented and successful brokers across the country. These high-calibre appointments will take the division from strength to strength, increasing the knowledge base and support that is available to each adviser to reach their full potential.
“Not only are we thrilled to add such experience to our team with Emily and Sharman, but to recognise and promote just some of the brilliant talent found within Just Mortgages. Given their success in a relatively short space of time, both Nicole and Adam will be great inspiration and a fantastic resource for the brokers in their regions.”
Cox said: “I am very proud to be taking the next step in my career with Just Mortgages. The level of support I have received in reaching this position has been fantastic and I look forward to replicating this moving forward with my team.
“My hope is that by sharing my story and using my experience, I can demonstrate that if you work hard and you’re dedicated, the opportunities to progress are there for all. We have some really talented advisers in our division, and I look forward to not only supporting them day-to-day, but in helping them realise their potential.”
Fox added: “I’m really pleased to be joining the team at Just Mortgages and to be working closely with brokers across the M1 region. The opportunity to run my own team and utilise the structures and processes Just Mortgages has put in place is hugely appealing.
“My passion is helping advisers achieve their own personal goals, whether it’s being available to help find a solution or supporting them in getting to where they want to be. This exciting role certainly enables me to do this and more.”
