The Northview Group are combining the senior management teams of Kensington and New Street.

The group said it was “with this in mind” that the group’s mortgages distribution director David Finlay (pictured) and New Street’s sales and distribution director Adrian Whittaker both left the business to “pursue new opportunities”.

Despite the management merger Kensington and New Street will continue to operate as separate brands, with New Street focusing on fast online decisions and processing and Kensington on complex cases.

A spokesman for The Northview Group said: “We are combining the senior to better leverage the capabilities of both of our lending brands.

“With this in mind, David Finlay and Adrian Whittaker have decided to leave The Northview Group to pursue new opportunities. We would like to thank them both for all of their hard work in establishing our lending platform and wish them every success in the future.

“By combining our structure, we will be in a position to provide mortgage intermediaries with a more consistent experience across our lending brands and greater opportunity to place their cases, whether they need a light touch approach or more considered underwriting.

“The UK economy and housing market are built on robust foundations and there will continue to be strong demand for mortgages from customers who require alternative options to the mainstream lenders.

“We will continue to work closely with our intermediary partners to develop our proposition and meet this demand.”
