Specialist lender Foundation Home Loans has made five hires to its sales team.
Katie Quigley (pictured left) joins Foundation as regional area manager for South Wales and the West.
Prior to this, she was a key account manager at Virgin Money.
Meanwhile Jack Gerasimov (pictured right) has been promoted from the internal business development team to regional area manager for the South.
Both will report to head of sales, Mark Whitear.
Foundation has also appointed three BDMs within its internal team, Ikram Pervez covering the Midlands with Keith Jones, Waquas Ai the South with Jack Gerasimov and Josh Evans the South East with Vicky Pearce.
All three will report to Foundation’s internal sales manager, Gavin Kyle.
Mark Whitear, head of sales at Foundation Home Loans, said: “It’s very pleasing to be announcing the expansion of our sales team at the start of 2020.
“We saw significant growth during the last year and we have plenty of plans for the year ahead to ensure we continue to develop effective and sustainable relationships with our intermediary partners.
“In order to retain our position as a lender which is always available and can provide real flexibility, we need quality people, and it’s therefore exciting to announce the recruitment of Katie and the promotion of Jack to regional account manager roles, plus our three new Internal BDMs who will provide a range of support and resources to all our intermediary partners.
“Our focus in 2020 will be on continuing to provide a quality proposition in our core buy-to-let offering, but also to support our growing activity in the residential space.”
