United Trust Bank has its restructured mortgage sales team with Mike Walters (pictured) becoming sales director – mortgages. Walters who was previously sales director – property intermediaries, will be responsible for the bank’s residential first charge and second charge mortgage products.

Key accounts, including specialist distributors, packagers and master brokers, will be managed by Jigar Patel (South) and Chris Pedlar (North).

Corporate accounts, including all network and club level relationships, will be overseen by Hannah Oades and Martin Sims.

Broker relationships, including all appointed representatives and directly authorised advisers who submit via a network or club, will be managed by Kerry Bradley, James Hodgskin and Rachel Shackleton.

Earlier this year UTB Mortgages restructured its Underwriting Team implementing smaller and created a remote roving underwriter hub based around the Midlands and Manchester.

Buster Tolfree, United Trust Bank’s director – mortgages, said: “We’re continuing to develop our mortgage business in terms of product range, employing innovative technology and how we deploy our talented people to best support the wide variety of introducers we now regularly deal with.

“Mike Walters has been instrumental in the development and delivery of UTB’s successful sales strategy for mortgages and bridging and I’m delighted he’s now 100% focused on helping me to deliver our ambitious plans for UTB Mortgages for Intermediaries.”
