Metro Bank has appointed Jeremy Cook as head of corporate relationships within its mortgage team.
He will take up the position on 2 April and report directly to Charles Morley, director of mortgage distribution.
Overseeing the management of key corporate relationships, Cook will work closely with major networks, clubs and intermediary firms as the bank continues to expand its mortgage services.
He has over 30 years’ experience across financial services, most recently as a senior manager for new build at Nationwide Building Society. Prior to this, he spent over 18 years at Friends Provident, including as a mortgage relationship manager.
Morley said: “Our superior customer service, well-designed products and competitive rates means we’re winning fans among brokers and customers at an increasingly fast rate.
“Jeremy’s customer-focussed 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 banking revolution in April.”
Cook added: “I am delighted to be joining Metro Bank at a time when the business is keen to build on their strong intermediary mortgage business. This gives me a great opportunity to utilise my skills and experience to achieve the business’ aims.
“I look forward to meeting my new stakeholders, and representing a revolutionary brand by sharing our broad proposition to both brokers and customers.”
