Legal & General Mortgage Club has finished its recruitment drive to appoint broker support specialists across its later life, new build, buy-to-let and specialist lending teams.
The broker team is led by Craig Hall, head of broker relationships and propositions (pictured) and includes key relationship managers, Paul Hopton, Clare Beardmore, Adam Sheldon, Zara Bray and telephone account manager Louise Turton.
Paul Hopton, who has worked at Legal and General Mortgage Club for four years, will be responsible for the club’s later life lending proposition.
Clare Beardmore and Adam Sheldon, who both joined from Leek United Building Society will focus on new build and buy to let, while Zara Bray who joined from Legal and General’s wealth management division will be responsible for specialist lending.
Louise Turton will also work closely with the team, assisting with broker insight and the broader proposition development.
The club will hold a number of specialist events throughout the year. It hosts its tenth new build forum on 22 May and has plans to hold a buy-to-let and later life lending forum later in the year.
Craig Hall, head of broker relationships and propositions, Legal & General Mortgage Club, said: “As borrower demand changes, the need for brokers to focus on ‘advice rich’ areas, such as new build, buy to let, specialist and later life lending grows.
“We are continually looking to support advisers wanting to operate in these areas and the completion of this team will ultimately help us achieve this.
“The team’s combined experience of the industry will play a crucial role in further developing relationships with our key partners as we look to expand and diversify as a mortgage club. We’re dedicated to investing heavily in our people and the education of our members and we believe the creation of this team is testament to that.”
