Fleet Mortgages has appointed a business development manager covering the Midlands in Chris Kirby.
The new recruit will be tasked with looking after Fleet’s relationships with advisers and intermediaries and will report to sales director Ross Turrell.
Kirby joined after spending four and a half years at Coventry Building Society in a variety of roles, including both mortgage and protection adviser and a telephone/office-based BDM where he covered approximately 300 relationships in the Midlands.
Bob Young, chief executive of Fleet Mortgages, said: “We have had incredibly strong support from the intermediary community in the Midlands and therefore we wanted to ensure we had a quality business development manager in place to develop those relationships.
“Appointing someone like Chris is a real positive for the business, and those Midlands-based brokers, as he has excellent local knowledge and a very strong skill-set in order to deliver on our commitment to the intermediary sector.
“From his time as a telephone-based BDM in his previous role Chris will be a recognisable voice to many advisers however with Fleet Mortgages he will now become a recognisable face too, visiting and supporting existing relationships, and developing new ones across the region.
“We are very pleased to have him on board and would urge any advisers who are active in the buy-to-let sector in the Midlands to get in touch with him.”
