Although Leman will primarily act as an underwriter she will also assist with broker enquiries and support Smart Money’s BDM’s in the field, helping to maintain and raise service standards.
Paul Crewe, managing director of Smart Money, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Katy to our growing team.
“Her vast experience makes her ideally placed to help us continue our strong conversion of enquiries into completions across a range of products whilst also enhancing compliance trails for brokers to fully satisfy FCA requirements.
“At Smart we’ve always provided introducers with excellent service levels and fair rewards for their business and we’re in the midst of an ongoing recruitment campaign to ensure we will continue meeting and exceeding the needs of new and existing introducers now and in the future.”
Leman added: “Smart Money really is a company which invests in its staff and I look forward to working closely with the team and our introducer community.
“I have worked within the mortgage and secured loan industry for almost 12 years and have experience helping to set up underwriting departments for both lenders and brokerages so feel I can really get to grips with all our introducers needs and help find the solutions to fit their clients requirements.”
