Specialist lender Aldermore has appointed Nick Parker as head of intermediary distribution within its retail mortgage business.
He will be responsible for developing both the field and telephone intermediary sales forces. Parker has over 25 years’ experience of working in financial services and will start at Aldermore in May.
Jon Cooper, head of mortgages omnichannel, at Aldermore said: “We are very happy to welcome Nick to Aldermore as our new head of intermediary distribution.
“He brings to the role a lot of invaluable experience that complements the Bank’s approach of nurturing a culture that puts intermediaries and customers at the heart of everything we do.
“Nick will be a key part of the team as we continually seek to expand and improve our product propositions to reach an ever greater number of customers with straightforward financial solutions for every stage of their life.”
Most recently, he has spent the last two and a half years as regional sales manager with Bank of Ireland for Intermediaries running a team of nine business development managers (BDMs).
He has held a number of roles in intermediary sales and sales management for firms such as Mortgages Plc and Advantage, as well as undertaking various specialist roles within risk, control and governance for Lloyds, Barclays Wealth and the Financial Ombudsman Service. He will begin his role in May.
Parker added: “I’m delighted to be joining Aldermore at this exciting time for the Bank.
“Aldermore has an excellent reputation across the industry and wider broker market. I hope to play an integral role as the Bank looks to support more intermediaries and customers moving forward as we grow our mortgage business.”
