Paragon Mortgages’ parent company, The Paragon Group of Companies, is celebrating its 30th anniversary today.
John Heron (pictured), managing director of Paragon Mortgages, is in his 30th year of service and is Paragon’s longest serving employee.
He started in mortgage sales and launched Paragon’s buy-to-let business in 1996 as the group’s director of mortgages.
Heron said: “I cannot believe it has been 30 years. Being part of the business from the beginning has been a real privilege but the best part has been working with so many outstanding people right across the group at every level.
“The time has flown because we have constantly moved the proposition on and adding Paragon Bank to the group in the last 18 months has allowed us to take another leap forward.
“Buy-to-let has been a major highlight but the group’s interests already extend way beyond this, I have no doubt that there are many other very exciting initiatives yet to come.”
