Buy-to-let lender Landbay has hired Rob Stanton as a regional account manager for the Midlands.
Stanton has joined from Paragon, where he spent 15 years as a senior underwriter and a regional manager working with intermediaries in the Midlands.
He said: “Landbay is quickly establishing itself as an innovative and successful lender, which was a big attraction for me. I am looking forward to joining Landbay at a time where the specialist market is growing at an impressive rate, and I hope my experience of the sector can help the continued growth and success of the company.”
Landbay said his appointment is part of a wider strategy towards strengthening Landbay’s regional presence after it hired Ian Hall as regional account manager for the North in June.
Paul Brett, managing director, intermediaries, at Landbay, said: “Rob’s expertise and experience will strengthen our regional proposition, and help us continue to deliver excellence to our brokers.
“The business is going from strength to strength, with record lending volumes each month and expectations of profitability in the next quarter. The expansion of our team reflects this success and should accelerate our growth further in the coming months.”
