Foundation Home Loans has expanded its sales team with five new recruits covering both regional area managers and internal business development managers.
Katie Quigley joins Foundation as regional area manager for South Wales and the West. Prior to this, she was a key account manager at Virgin Money plus held a range of roles at the Bank of Ireland.
Jack Gerasimov has also been promoted from the internal BDM team to regional area manager for the South region.
Both will report to head of sales, Mark Whitear.
Foundation has also announced three new BDMs within the internal team. They are:
- Ikram Pervez – covering the Midlands region with Keith Jones.
- Waquas Ai – covering the South region with Jack Gerasimov.
- Josh Evans – covering the South East region with Vicky Pearce.
All three will report to Foundation’s internal sales manager, Gavin Kyle.
Whitear said: “It’s very pleasing to be announcing the expansion of our sales team at the start of 2020. We saw significant growth during the last year and we have plenty of plans for the year ahead to ensure we continue to develop effective and sustainable relationships with our intermediary partners.
“In order to retain our position as a lender which is always available and can provide real flexibility, we need quality people, and it’s therefore exciting to announce the recruitment of Katie and the promotion of Jack to regional account manager roles, plus our three new Internal BDMs who will provide a range of support and resources to all our intermediary partners.
“Our focus in 2020 will be on continuing to provide a quality proposition in our core buy-to-let offering, but also to support our growing activity in the residential space.”
