Clydesdale Bank won four out of eleven awards presented at the John Charcol Mortgage Awards Ceremony at the Park Plaza Hotel, London on 10th February.

Kevin Lilley, head of national accounts for third party distribution at Clydesdale Bank said: “Clydesdale Bank has had a presence in the intermediary market for just over one year and it is an honour to be recognised by the UK’s leading mortgage broker. The John Charcol awards are a tremendous boost for our team as they recognise the quality of our products as well as the service they provide to our broker partners.

“We will continue to offer the highest levels of service to our broker partners, bringing decision-making closer to them and helping them to grow their businesses. Last year saw us making significant inroads in to the intermediary market and the John Charcol awards underline our commitment to maintain our momentum in 2006.”

In addition to winning four awards, the bank was also highly commended in the categories of best relationship manager support and mortgage underwriter.

Best Relationship Manager Support was awarded to Clydesdale Bank intermediary relationship manager Charles Durose, with runner up awarded to Clydesdale Bank intermediary relationship manager Janet Smith.

Walter Avrili, product director at John Charcol, comments: “Clydesdale’s success can be attributed to a combination of things. The individuals that manage their intermediary division are both proactive and reactive, fully prepared to support my employees whenever they can, and their products have been consistently competitive. Add to this their great service and there
was little doubt that it would be a successful night for Clydesdale. We are looking forward to working with them throughout 2006.”
