Metro Bank has appointed Jeremy Cook as head of corporate relationships within its mortgage team.
Cook will report directly to Charles Morley, director of mortgage distribution, oversee the management of key corporate relationships, and work closely with major networks, clubs and intermediary firms. He will take up the position in April 2018.
With over 30 years’ experience of financial services under his belt and having previously worked as a senior manager for new build at Nationwide Building Society, Cook has a solid track record of strengthening relationships with intermediaries across the UK. Prior to this, he spent over 18 years at Friends Provident as a mortgage relationship manager.
Morley commented: “Jeremy’s customer-focused approach means he’s developed strong and extensive relationships across the industry and I look forward to him bringing this unrelenting focus on the customer to the baking revolution.”
Cook expressed his delight to be joining Metro Bank at a time when the business is keen to build on its intermediary mortgage business. “This gives me a great opportunity to utilise my skills and experience to achieve the business’ aims,” he said.
“I look forward to meeting my new stakeholders and representing a revolutionary brand by sharing our broad proposition to both brokers and customers.”
