Jez Quinn has joined Masthaven Bank as a business development manager (BDM) for the Midlands.
Quinn will be responsible for recruiting, developing and managing key relationships while generating sales leads within the region.
He has more than 10 years’ experience in the industry and joins from Secure Trust Bank where he was BDM for the central region after a stint at West Brom Building Society.
Quinn will be fulfilling responsibilities previously held by Harriet Smith who has joined Crystal Specialist Finance.
The lender said the appointment was part of its ongoing expansion and would support its ethos to ensure all BDMs add real value to businesses they work with along with providing quality support and education for their brokers.
Director of sales Rob Barnard said: “Jez is an extremely welcome addition to the Masthaven team – he is already very well-known within the Midlands region and brings with him both a wealth of experience and a proven track record.
“Jez’s remit will include developing and managing key account partnerships and broker relationships to deliver against Masthaven’s sales objectives.
“The second quarter of the year is set to be a strong one for us and with the support of quality talent like Jez, we can continue to drive our ambitious growth plans for the sector,” he added.
