Kent Reliance has appointed Matthew Butt as a senior business development manager within Kent Reliance’s South team, responsible for boosting relationships with brokers in London and parts of Essex.
Butt has 10 years’ experience within the financial services sector, seven of which he spent at Nationwide Building Society. This was followed by a move to Virgin Money as a business development manager where he looked after intermediaries in East London, Essex, Hertfordshire and Kent.
He said: “I’m thrilled to be joining the team at Kent Reliance, and am particularly looking forward to sharing my local knowledge with the South team and help to boost growth within the region.”
Simon Cockerill, head of sales at OneSavings Bank, added: “We are delighted to welcome Matthew to the team.
“Matthew is the most recent of a series of senior hires we have made over the last few months following a very successful 2017. Matthew’s expertise and understanding of the sector and region are fundamental, and a key part of our continued development strategy in 2018.”
The news follows a number of recent hires by Kent Reliance at the beginning of this year, including Helen Comben and Susan Baillie as senior BDM’s in the South London and North teams respectively.
