Pepper Money has increased its sales support for brokers with the appointment of a new regional development manager for the North East.
Mark Wilkinson joins Pepper Money from Virgin Money and is tasked with supporting brokers to grow their businesses by helping more clients with specialist circumstances.
Last November, Pepper Money appointed Ryan Brailsford to the new role of head of sales for the North to help drive the lender’s ongoing growth and focus on providing hands-on support for brokers around the country.
“Brokers have a huge opportunity to help more clients and grow their business,” said Brailsford.
“Changing demographics and working patterns mean that more borrowers are turning to professional mortgage advice and specialist lenders are responding to this demand with increasingly competitive products and service propositions.”
Wilkinson added: “I’m really looking forward to engaging with my regional brokers to show them the great things that Pepper Money can do to support their clients.”
He said that the North East market needs a lender with an ‘appetite for interesting clients’, including the self-employed, buy-to-let investors and customers with credit blips.
“I will spend my time showing brokers how easy it is to do business with Pepper Money and why we should be their specialist lender of choice.”
Wilkson concluded: “It’s an exciting year ahead for Pepper Money and I’m delighted I have the chance to spread the good news about the great things we do.”
