Gary Little is to join TMA, the mortgage club of LSL financial services, at the beginning of 2016.
TMA says it has ambitious growth plans and is recruiting a number of people to help it to achieve these. Little will run the TMA sales team, distribution strategy and help shape and deliver the TMA proposition.
He joins from the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) where he was responsible for re launching the CII mortgage and protection proposition via the Society of Mortgage Professionals. Prior to this Little worked at Assurant Intermediary and Lloyds Banking Group.
David Copland, director of TMA, said: “It is a testament to the progress that TMA has made in the past year that someone of Gary’s calibre and experience has decided to join us. Gary has a proven track record in sales management, intermediary distribution and of launching products into the intermediary sector.
“We look forward to him helping us to grow the business, meet our ambitious growth targets and continue the very impressive strides that TMA has made this year.”
Little added: “I am looking forward to the challenge and working with the new TMA team to build on the great steps it has taken over the past two years. TMA is expanding rapidly and I am excited about the potential that the new team brings as we go into 2016 with ambitious growth plans.
“There is a lot of change in the DA mortgage club space at the moment. With over 70% of mortgages now being arranged via intermediaries, this is a great opportunity to make TMA the ‘go to’ mortgage club for directly authorised advisers.”
