Castle Trust hires Druce to build packagers links
Druce joined from Crystal Specialist Finance where he was head of distribution & development, while before that he was a Conservative councillor for Macclesfield South.
Alex Upton, head of sales at Castle Trust, said: “We can see that the market is becoming increasingly complex as more and more new lenders jostle to find a niche.
“Strategically, we recognise that specialist distributors will have an increasingly important part to play in helping intermediaries develop the right solutions for their clients.
“Damien joins the business at an exciting time and has the expertise, experience and knowledge of this dynamic market to bring real success to his new role.
“Damien will play a pivotal role in growing our market share within the packager channel and working collaboratively to implement the Mortgage Credit Directive.”
Druce added: “Castle Trust has established itself in an increasingly competitive market because it has something genuinely different to offer – uniquely flexible products.
“I am really excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. Specialist distributors now provide an essential conduit to both specialist lenders and their products – Castle Trust has an important part to play in this market.”
