The Mortgage Lender (TML) has made a series of hires within its sales division.
David Eaves has been promoted to head of sales, whilst Louise Apollonio has been promoted to national account manager for the North.
Gordon Rae, divisional development manager, takes responsibility for introducer relationships in Central London.
Steve Griffiths (pictured), sales director at TML, said: “Over the last year we’ve hit our stride as a lender by investing in our product development, expanding our residential range as well as entering the expat at buy-to-let and Help to Buy markets.
“This has resulted in record business volumes and a need for us to invest in our sales team so we can provide a greater level of support for advisers who have complex cases, particularly for their self-employed and specialist buy-to-let customers.
“Increasing the size of our regional sales team means we will be able to see more brokers face to face and add real value to their business.
“Providing advisers with both a field and telephone business development manager means they are supported locally and at head office by someone that they know and trust.”
The Mortgage Lender has boosted its sales team from 21 to 26 to build closer relationships with an increased number of advisers and service record business volumes.
TML is recruiting for three additional positions including a national account manager for the South and two additional business development managers.
The intermediary-only mortgage lender has also appointed Jamie Broadley as the HUB team leader in its Glasgow-based telephone sales team.
This comes after TML launched a series of products in 2019 including an expat buy-to-let and Help to Buy residential mortgage offering.
TML also completed its first UK mortgage-backed securitisation of residential assets for a total notes issuance of £238.5m.
