United Trust Bank Bridging promotes Kidby to regulated underwriting head
United Trust Bank (UTB) has appointed Becky Kidby (pictured) as its head of regulated underwriting in its bridging division with immediate effect.

The lender said that it was restructuring its bridging underwriting function into two dedicated teams, with one covering regulated bridging and one managing unregulated bridging applications.

In her role, Kidby will manage underwriting in the bridging division and ensure brokers received a “quicky and efficient service”. She will also be part of developing and delivering strategy for further growth at the company.

Kidby has worked at the firm for nearly seven years, initially joining as a bridging case manager before taking on the role of bridging underwriting manager.

Before that she worked at Barclays between 2011 and 2016 in various roles, most recently as real estate relationship manager.


‘A popular move’

Sundeep Patel, director of bridging for UTB, said: “Becky has played a key role in the success of UTB’s bridging division over the last few years and she fully deserves this promotion to a senior management position.

“This was a popular move internally and I am sure it will be warmly welcomed by the many brokers, lawyers and valuers Becky works with when delivering an exemplary service.”

He continued: “Becky’s key objective in her new role is to maintain UTB’s dominance in the regulated bridging sector and continue to grow our market share.

“She will work closely with our broker partners to ensure we continue to evolve and improve our processes in light of the changing market and new Consumer Duty regulations and enable UTB to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers and brokers moving forward.”

Kidby said: “UTB is the first choice lender for many brokers when placing regulated bridging cases and I am determined to to push UTB even further ahead of our competitors in that space.

“I believe we have the best underwriters in the business, all committed to delivering an outstanding service to our brokers and customers, and as we continue to invest in great people, technology and even slicker processing our regulated bridging offering is only going to get better, and I am really excited to be part of that journey.”
