Skipton Building Society has made two appointments, promoting employees who impressed in their previous positions to senior roles.
Alex Beavis, who joined Skipton five years ago and was previously their senior product manager, will take on the new position of head of mortgages.
Maitham Mohsin, who was senior partnerships manager at Skipton from 2014, will be the new head of savings and partnerships.
Beavis said: “The UK mortgage market is going through an unprecedented transition, thanks to developments in digital technology. Combining strong intermediary relationships and top class service with the advantages of emerging digital technology is a challenge all lenders face, and one that I’m excited to take on.”
Mohsin said: “I feel honoured and privileged to be able to lead Skipton’s savings and partnerships propositions. I’ve been immensely proud of what the team have delivered so far, from helping more than 134,000 customers with a cash lifetime ISA through to the redevelopment of our home insurance proposition.”
Skipton’s director of products Kris Brewster said of the appointments: “They both bring strong industry expertise, intense customer focus and a drive to embrace change in a challenging commercial market.”
Moore joins new adviser protection club
Auxilium Partnership has appointed Sarah Moore as head of proposition, (pictured) reporting to chief executive officer, Mark Graves who launched an adviser protection club three weeks ago.
Moore has over 20 years’ experience in financial services marketing, product and proposition design roles at Morgan Stanley, Bright Grey and, most recently, Scottish Widows where she worked in both protection proposition and engagement roles.
Graves said: “I am delighted that Sarah has joined our team. Her experience of protection propositions and marketing is second to none.”
Moore commented: “I’m hugely excited to be joining Mark at the launch of this new concept in the protection market. I’ll be able to draw on all my marketing, engagement, product and proposition experience and use it through a different lens, that of the adviser, rather than the provider.”
