Brightstar Financial has promoted Gina Blagden to the new role of head of mortgages to manage the specialist distributor’s buy-to-let and residential mortgage teams.
Blagden (pictured), who has worked at Brightstar since 2012 and was previously head of residential mortgages, also joins the management team.
Bradley Moore, managing director at Brightstar Financial, said: “The lending market is constantly changing, which means we need to make sure that Brightstar is able to adapt to continue to deliver brokers a comprehensive set of lending solutions for almost any specialist lending requirement.
“So, we have reviewed the structure and leadership of our business, and we are delighted to welcome Gina to the management team.
“Gina has been a driving force behind growth at Brightstar with her leadership of the residential mortgages team and she will now provide an aligned approached across our entire mortgages department, which will benefit our brokers and their clients.”
Blagden added: “There are so many ways that Brightstar can help brokers to write more business and deliver their clients with solutions that accurately fit their requirements across our range of lending areas.
“I’m really looking forward to helping more brokers to realise the value of working with Brightstar in my new role as head of mortgages and working with the team to lead the business into what promises to be an exciting year.”
This comes after Brightstar promoted Darren Perry to the new role of national account manager last month.
