Kent Reliance, part of the specialist lending and retail savings group OneSavings Bank, has hired two regional sales managers and a senior business development manager.
James Forth and Alan Kimber, previously senior business development managers for Kent Reliance, have been appointed as regional sales managers and will continue to drive broker relationships forward.
Forth will be responsible for a team of business development managers in the North and West and Alan in the South. Both will report directly to Simon Cockerill, head of sales for Kent Reliance.
These changes follow Helen Comben joining as senior business development manager, in north and central London, reporting to Alan Kimber. She brings 15 years’ experience as a business development manager for NatWest, Intelligent Finance and Nationwide.
Simon Cockerill, head of sales at Kent Reliance, said: “2017 was a busy year for us as the specialist market grew.
“Building on our successes, Kent Reliance continues to invest in ensuring positive customer outcomes remain at the centre of everything we do, by recruiting the best industry professionals.”
“James and Alan’s appointments are well deserved and it’s great to see internal progression at Kent Reliance which is a clear endorsement of the business’ investment in talent.
“Helen’s extensive experience in the role of BDM will also be a valuable asset to the team, helping to create yet more opportunities in the year ahead.”
