Foundation Home Loans has expanded its senior sales team, appointing Grant Hendry as national account manager.
Hendry joins from Mortgage Gym where he was head of digital community, responsible for managing relationships with lenders.
He was also creating business relationships with mortgage networks and mortgage clubs, arranging all marketing events and training all brokers in digital fintech.
Prior to this, Hendry held a range of business development managerial roles and a consultancy role at both Atom and Metro Bank.
Hendry said: “The need for specialist products continues to grow whether clients are portfolio landlords, self-employed or first time landlords making their first purchase.
“Currently, these sectors are underserved, but with Foundation Home Loans’ competitive and flexible offering, there is a real opportunity to ensure this is no longer the case.”
Andrew Ferguson, commercial director at Foundation Home Loans, said: “With Grant supporting our work with existing strategic distribution partners, we will be able to continue making a positive impact on the specialist lending market.
“Grant’s main focus will be on listening and understanding their immediate and long-term business needs, identifying new areas where Foundation Home Loans can add real value to brokers and their clients through our sensible, no nonsense specialist lending proposition.”
