Ian Hall has left Paragon Bank, where he was a regional manager for five years, to join Landbay as regional account manager for the north.
Prior to this, Hall worked for CHL Mortgages where he was business development manager. His career in the mortgage industry has spanned over 12 years, with experience of working on complex buy-to-let cases.
Hall said: “Landbay has quickly established itself as an innovative and responsive lender in the buy-to-let space, with a compelling, innovative and sector disrupting approach to lending.
“I’m looking forward to bringing my experience to the business, strengthening its reputation as a leading specialist lender at a time of rapid growth for the company and sector as a whole.”
Paul Brett, managing director intermediaries at Landbay, said: “Ian is well respected in the market and his expertise will play a crucial role in growing our broker relationships, further cementing our position in the market.
“His unique understanding of complex buy-to-let will bring much value to what is an already dynamic team.”
Landbay’s expansion plan consists of increasing headcount by 70% by summer 2018.
