Brad Fordham (pictured) has been appointed as head of mortgages at Santander UK after holding the post on an interim basis.
Fordham has been with Santander for over 25 years and took up the role on an interim basis in January 2020 following the departure of Miguel Sard.
Prior to this he was Santander’s head of mortgage distribution.
He said: “I’m thrilled to be appointed to the role of head of mortgages on a permanent basis and am immensely proud of the support that my team continues to give to our customers and the broker community.
“Their hard work during the COVID-19 pandemic has enabled us to grant over 210,000 mortgage payment holidays and the recent reintroduction of our Help to Buy products will enable us to continue to support an important sector of the market.
“I look forward to using my 25 years of experience with Santander to guide the Santander mortgage division through the challenges of the current market and into the future.”
