Business development managers (BDMs) Rob Love and Nick Warren have been joined by Chris Pedlar, Paul Mansell, Andy Keehner and Mike Walters.
Love, Warren and Walters will focus on bridging, looking after their existing contacts and developing new ones. Walters will be introducing the bank’s bridging offer to brokers in Wales and the South West.
Meanwhile, Pedlar, Mansell and Keehner will promote UTB’s mortgage and bridging products to brokers across the country. Pedlar will cover the Midlands, Mansell the North and Scotland, and Keehner will serve brokers in East Anglia and London.
Jigar Patel will continue as key account manager, assisting brokers with training and compliance matters for the mortgage side of the division.
In addition, the lender said it is continuing to develop its online broker portal, streamline its internal processes and use technology to improve communication.
Jo Edwards, business development director for mortgages and bridging, said: “I am delighted to introduce UTB’s new BDM team. We have exciting plans for the future, and these guys have the skills, experience and drive to help us achieve the substantial potential we see from taking UTB’s products and services to brokers across the UK.”
Edwards added that the technology and process changes will allow UTB to “deliver a slicker, more streamlined process from DIP to drawdown”.
“I’m looking forward to seeing UTB grow its mortgage and bridging business significantly over the next few years,” she said.
