Accord strengthens team
Accord Mortgages has strengthened its intermediary sales team and established a new corporate account team.
The intermediary-only lender, which is part of the Yorkshire Building Society Group, has expanded its team of field-based business development managers to 14, with the addition of two new members to bolster the face-to-face service Accord offers intermediaries nationwide.
James Treviss is the new BDM for the M3 corridor – including Surrey and Hampshire. Michael Clarke, has been appointed BDM in the South West of the country, including Bath, Bristol and Cardiff.
Accord has also appointed two new corporate account anagers, to manage relationships and provide support to its national lending partners. Clare Jarvis joins the team as corporate account manager, having recently been key account manager with New Street Mortgages.
Gerry Dobbin, has also been appointed to the position of corporate account manager, having previously been regional sales manager for the South Region.
David Robinson, national intermediary sales manager at Accord, said: “Our ultimate objective is to help brokers to grow their business and help them to give the best possible service to their clients.
“This expansion of our intermediary sales team underlines our commitment to supporting brokers and strengthening our intermediary proposition further.
“Brokers can utilise Accord’s support network in the way that best suits their business needs – through face-to-face advice, on the phone or via our web chat facility.
“The developments are part of our ongoing commitment to expand our broker support service. Our new and improved sales team compliments the changes we have made to our underwriting approach, providing brokers with common-sense lending decisions and direct access to our underwriting team.”
