The Northview Group has hired Craig McKinlay from Lloyds Banking Group to replace the departing Keith Street (pictured).
McKinlay is joining as sales and marketing director on 2 October while Street will depart as vice chairman of the group at the end of that month.
Despite the different job titles it will effectively be a replacement and Northview won’t be hiring a new vice chairman of group lending.
Street said: “With previous experience leading mortgage sales for the various Lloyds brands, Craig stood out as a candidate that has the understanding and capability to grow new and existing relationships for the group in the years ahead.
“Craig is joining us at an exciting time for the group, with the recently announced changes to our buy-to-let ranges for portfolio landlords and with more product changes in the pipeline for Kensington residential mortgage products coming up.
“I look forward to working closely with him as I handover the reins and wish him all the best for this new role.”
The new recruit has been commercial and channels director at Lloyds Banking Group with responsibility for analytics, pricing, customer experience, business development and channel engagement across retail and commercial banking.
Before April 2016 he oversaw mortgage sales across Lloyds Banking Group as mortgage new business director.
He previously held senior positions at Homeserve as director of marketing, as well as RAC and Aviva as head of sales and marketing.
