Specialist buy-to-let mortgage lender Landbay has promoted Joela Jenvey from key account manager to head of networks and clubs.
She will lead the strategic development of networks and clubs, spearheading a national accounts team which Landbay plans to grow over 2019. Jenvey joined the Landbay team in 2017 where she worked as the regional account manager for the South.
Paul Brett, managing director of intermediaries at Landbay, said: “We are thrilled to have promoted Joela into this role. Her experience in the industry and in the business is second to none, and means that she understands the sector from the broker, lender, and client perspective.
“This will help us continue to deliver excellent customer service to our brokers, something we believe has been integral to the success of Landbay so far. Joela will continue to expand our distribution on the lending side, helping to meet growing demand for our product across the UK.”
Jenvey began her career as an account manager for various lenders in intermediary sales, and spent a period working as a broker.
Across her career, she has had experience in a number of mortgage sectors, including buy-to-let, residential mainstream, self-builds, specialist mortgages, offset, and international lending.
Landbay increased its headcount by 70% in 2018 and has big ambitions for the year ahead. The company is set to continue to expand its underwriting and technology teams, with the intention to double headcount in the next 12 months.
Jenvey added: “Landbay is going from strength to strength, with record lending volumes each month and prestigious award wins under our belt.
“It’s exciting to take on this new role at a time where the specialist market is growing at an impressive rate, and I hope my experience can support the continued growth and expansion of the company.”
