Pepper Money has appointed Mark Wilkinson as a regional development manager for the North East.
He joins from Virgin Money and is tasked with supporting brokers to grow their business by helping more clients with specialist circumstances. Last November, Pepper Money hired Ryan Brailsford to the new role of head of sales for the North.
Brailsford said: “Brokers have a huge opportunity to help more clients and grow their business. Changing demographics and working patterns mean that more borrowers are turning to professional mortgage advice and specialist lenders are responding to this demand with increasingly competitive products and service propositions.
“I’m so pleased that Mark has chosen to join Pepper to help us work more closely with brokers in the North East to ensure that more are able to find a home for their interesting cases.”
Wilkinson added: “I’m really looking forward to engaging with my regional brokers to show them the great things that Pepper Money can do to support their clients.
“The North East market needs a lender with an appetite for interesting cases, including self-employed, buy to let and customers with credit blips.
“I will spend my time showing brokers how easy it is to do business with Pepper Money and why we should be their specialist lender of choice. It’s an exciting year ahead for Pepper Money and I’m delighted I have the chance to spread the good news about the great things we do.”
