HSBC has appointed Barclays’ Jackie Uhi to head of mortgage distribution.
Uhi, who starts on Monday, spent six years at Barclays, most recently as managing director for mortgage distribution.
She will manage the bank’s UK mortgage and protection distribution team across branches, contact centres and intermediaries.
Tracie Pearce, HSBC UK’s head of secured lending, said: “I am extremely pleased to have someone with Jackie’s experience and leadership qualities joining the team.
“Jackie’s appointment comes at an important time for us following an extremely successful year, and is testament to our commitment to grow our mortgage lending across both direct and intermediary channels.”
HSBC entered the intermediary market in August 2015.
Uhi said: “I’m extremely excited to be joining HSBC, its distribution channels are developing all the time, as are its broker relationships.
“HSBC has demonstrated its commitment to the intermediary channel after being a direct only business, and what they have achieved in such a short space of time is no mean feat.
“I will be looking to build on that, making sure the house buying process for our customers is as seamless and frictionless as possible.”
