Bluestone Mortgages has promoted Steve Seal from director of sales and marketing to managing director.
Seal (pictured) joined Bluestone Mortgages in September 2017 as director of sales and marketing and brings 24 years of financial services experience to his new role.
Peter McGuinness, group chief executive at Bluestone, said: “Steve was selected for the role after a thorough search process and is a natural for the appointment.
“Since joining Bluestone, Steve has demonstrated impressive leadership in driving the sales and marketing strategies for Bluestone, and with his obvious passion for a service and relationship led proposition.
“I am confident Steve is very well placed to excel in tackling the wider opportunity presented by his new role.”
As well as being responsible for growth plans, Seal will be overseeing additional investment in Bluestone’s proprietary loan workflow technology platform.
Seal added: “I’m excited to be leading Bluestone Mortgages as we continue into our next stage of company growth.
“Recent developments within our proposition such as open banking and extending our fee-free remortgage product to cater for adverse credit customers means we are in good stead to propel the business forward and keep on top of the constantly evolving specialist lending market.
“These are incredibly exciting times in Bluestone’s development and I’m looking forward to being at the helm.”
