Just Mortgages has appointed three divisional sales directors.
Peter Kendall, Mike Peet and Tony Richards will be responsible for more than 30 mortgage and protection advisers across the Just Mortgages group.
John Phillips (pictured), group operations director at Just Mortgages and Spicerhaart, said: “Tony, Pete, and Mike bring a wealth of expertise and experience to the team and all have a genuine passion for what they do; their appointments are a huge asset to Just Mortgages and will be instrumental in the continued growth of the company.”
Kendall will be based in Derby and cover Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire.
He has 17 years’ experience in financial services and joined Just Mortgages in 2017 as regional compliance manager.
Kendall added: “I want to help our region to become the most successful and highly respected team in the company.
“My biggest passion is developing people to enhance their performance, support their career goals and deliver on their aspirations.
“For a fast-growing business, Just Mortgages has retained its colleague orientated approach, offers excellent support for those wanting to get on, rewards excellence and really backs its people.
“The company really emphasises the importance of personal development of all its staff and promoting from within demonstrates the belief and trust in this process.
“It encourages everyone to look to be the best they can as they recognise that doors are always open to being rewarded for your endeavours. For me, this role offers the chance for career enhancement and the opportunity to influence the continued growth of a great company.”
Peet started his career at Countrywide where he was a mortgage consultant for 10 years before being promoted to sale manager in 2017.
Peet said: “I thrive on developing people and ensuring clients get a good outcome every time. Coming into the business I am looking to bring this passion and help each of the advisers I work with reach their personal goals.
“There is constant development offered on all sorts off areas, increasing protection skills and social media to name just two. They also support Advisers who are considering a step into management with a bespoke development programme.”
Richards has more than 20 years’ experience in the industry and joined Just Mortgages as a consultant in 2003. He will cover the South West.
Richards added: “Just Mortgages has been fantastic. A few years back, they supported me with management training, and my boss at the time – John Doughty – was incredibly supportive. He let me get more involved in running the team for the last few years, more than you would normally expect.”
“I have really enjoyed being a consultant, but feel it is time for me to move into management and impart my experience and knowledge onto the next generation of consultants.”
