Gordon Rae has joined The Mortgage Lender as business development manager.
Rae (pictured) has more than 33 years of experience in financial services – 27 in mortgages – and joins from Pepper Money.
He has held a number of senior roles and was instrumental in launching GMAC RFC, Dudley Building Society and Pepper Homeloans into the UK intermediary market.
Rae said: “My career within financial services has been varied, but one thing for me has never changed. The industry is about people and the relationships you have and that was a value I knew The Mortgage Lender believed strongly too – one of many reasons I wanted to become part of the team.
“The Mortgage Lender isn’t your typical lender – it wants to be innovative, better and greater – it wants to make things happen.
“The business is young and keen to try new things for the benefit of its customers. The products and criteria are strong, and the team is committed and passionate. On a personal level, I feel invigorated and excited by this fresh challenge and I’m looking forward to renewing relationships with brokers and building new ones.”
Rae’s role at The Mortgage Lender will cover parts of East Anglia, London, the South East and the South West.
Peter Beaumont, deputy chief executive of The Mortgage Lender, added: “We’re delighted to have Gordon on-board.
“He’s a well-known and respected figure within the market and an asset to our business.
“His role at The Mortgage Lender will allow Gordon to do what he does best – build great relationships and use his industry experience to make brokers’ lives easier.”
