Stafford Railway Building Society has hired Stephen Breen as a business development manager for the North.
He previously held a BDM role at Furness Building Society, working with brokers in Cumbria and the North East.
He has more than 30 years’ experience in the sector having also worked at Bradford and Bingley.
Breen (pictured) said: “I have found a very warm welcome at Stafford Railway.
“My aim is to raise the society profile with networks, clubs and individual brokers in the North.
“I am looking forward to bringing my expertise to the exciting changes at Stafford Railway Building Society.”
Breen’s appointment is designed to complement current BDM Emma Parker, who will now focus on strengthening relationships with new and existing broker networks in the South rather than the North.
Mike Smith, chief executive of Stafford Railway Building Society, said “I am delighted that Stephen has joined the team at Stafford Railway Building Society.
“He brings an extensive knowledge of the sector and will be invaluable as we start to grow our intermediary business in the North region.”
