Steve Cox has joined buy-to-let lender Fleet Mortgages as distribution director after leaving Hodge Lifetime where he was business development director and had worked there since April 2016.
Prior to this he spent eight years as head of commercial development at Sesame Bankhall Group.
And Fleet Mortgage’s business development manager Chris Barwick, who previously covered the North East will now be covering the North of England.
Bob Young, chief executive officer of Fleet Mortgages, said: “We are very pleased to announce that Steve Cox has started work at Fleet Mortgages today as our new distribution director.
“We have been very much looking forward to him joining the team here – he brings with him a wealth of experience and is one of those rare individuals within our industry that has worked across both broker and lender roles at a very high level.
“This type of knowledge and expertise will be a huge boost to Fleet Mortgages and I have no doubt that Steve will hit the ground running and will help develop our offering and proposition in both our established product areas and a number of new ones.”
Steve Cox, distribution director at Fleet Mortgages, said: “This role was a very attractive one – too good to turn down – and I’m therefore very pleased to be finally starting at Fleet, where I believe I can offer a great deal of experience and insight, plus the ability to help push this business.
“Fleet already has a strong reputation for quality and service, and the team that’s been assembled is second to none.
“I’m excited to be working here and dealing with the large number of distribution partners we currently have. This is an exciting time for the business and there are plenty of opportunities to explore.”
