Yellow Stone Finance has appointed Mike Lawton as senior client relationship manager.
In 2012 he joined Which? Financial Services as managing director, growing the business from a pilot scheme to completing more than 600 mortgages every month, before setting up his own advice firm in 2017.
Yellow Stone Finance was launched by Miranda Khadr last month.
Khadr said: “I’m so pleased that Mike is joining us at Yellow Stone Finance. He has a huge amount of experience and great pedigree in building advisory firms.
“We are building a strong team of like-minded advisers who value the freedom to build creative solutions for their clients, and we are looking forward further recruitment in the near future.”
Yellow Stone Finance provides specialist and independent advice for clients who want property or business funding, including development finance, investment property, bridging finance, commercial mortgages, mezzanine finance, asset finance, invoice discounting and trade finance.
Lawton has worked in the mortgage industry for more than 25 years, with roles at Black Horse Agencies and Royal & Sun Alliance Property Services, before moving to John Charcol where he became national sales director.
He added: “I’ve worked in this industry for my whole career, making many friends and contacts along the way, and I decided to join Yellow Stone Finance to work with Miranda and her team because of the huge focus they place on providing quality advice and great customer outcomes.
“It’s been a great journey so far and I’m looking forward to working with like-minded people in this well-established team.”
