Stonebridge appoints MacLeod as BDM
Stonebridge has hired Lewis MacLeod (pictured) as field-based business development manager (BDM) to supports its appointed representative (AR) member firms.

This brings the Stonebridge business development team to 14 and comes after the hire of John Scrivens as its head of sales.

He will report to Natalia Kennewell as a senior BDM and will help ARs in a number of disciplines including strategic planning, client bank management, sales development, lead generation, business referral opportunities, and recruitment.

MacLeod joins from Primis, where he was an area supervision manager for nearly two years and before that, was a mortgage adviser at L&C Mortgages for nearly a year.

He also worked at Yorkshire Building Society between 2010 and 2021 in various roles including mortgage adviser, branch manager and mortgage manager.

Rob Clifford, chief executive at Stonebridge, said: “We are always keen to add to our vastly experienced team of field-based BDMs with quality appointments; people who know the market extremely well and, where possible, who have also been advisers so know acutely what they require and how they might take advantage of the opportunities available.

“In Lewis, we have such a person, and we’ve very pleased to be able to add him to the BDM team. He will be out supporting our advisory firm members, ensuring they have all they need to run their businesses, and to make sure they are taking advantage of every single opportunity available to them via Stonebridge – of which there are many.

“We’ll continue to invest in our adviser-facing personnel at Stonebridge and seek to ensure our growing number of members have everything at their disposal to be successful.”

MacLeod added: “I’m very pleased to have joined Stonebridge as its newest BDM and am looking forward to working with our AR firms and their advisers, to support and help them make the most of everything we offer, which is a considerable proposition.

“Having been an adviser I’m acutely aware of what they require, what support they need, and how best to utilise it. I’ll be using my experience and skillset to support these businesses and helping them to meet their ongoing targets and ambitions, in what promises to be a very interesting year in the mortgage market.”
