Hometrack adds to team

Guy Weightman has been appointed as sales director within Hometrack’s Lending Solutions team with specific responsibility to support the director of New Market Strategies. This involves creating the sales strategy for AVMs within the new HIP environment and focussing on HIP marketplaces such as HIP Providers, surveyors and IFAs, and also within the prime and sub-prime marketplaces.
