Fleet Mortgages has hired Paul Flude as a business development manager covering the South East.
Flude (pictured) will manage the lender’s relationships with advisers and intermediaries in the region.
Ross Turrell, sales director at Fleet Mortgages, whom Flude will report to, said: “Once again we are very pleased to have brought on board a BDM with significant experience in the role, as well as having worked as a mortgage adviser.
“This type of knowledge, and the strong contacts Paul already has, will I’m sure stand him in good stead as he develops his role within Fleet Mortgages.
“We are well aware of Paul’s many qualities and believe he will be a vital team member for us and will bring an enthusiasm to the role.
“This will help develop our proposition with the advisers and key relationships we already have right across the South East region.”
Flude has worked as an estate agency and finance broker before becoming a BDM for CHL Mortgages.
He was a self-employed mortgage adviser before this latest move.
Fleet’s products are available to individuals, limited companies and people looking to invest in HMOs.
Flude said: “Having worked with many of the team at Fleet Mortgages, and having worked as an adviser, I am fully aware of the quality of the buy-to-let offering we have here.
“It’s a very settled team and one completely focused on delivering for advisers and therefore I’m very pleased to have joined, and will be out and about presenting our proposition across the South East.
“Any adviser who wants to know more about Fleet Mortgages should contact me, or one of the team, directly and we’d be only too happy to outline how we can support your business.”
