Fleet Mortgages has appointed a new business development manager (BDM) for the South of England.
Giovanna Streatfield joins the buy-to-let specialist lender as BDM covering the South, where she will work with the region’s telephone BDM, Maizie Whitney.
Streatfield (pictured) joins Fleet Mortgages with over 20 years’ experience in financial services having worked in a number of mortgage and insurance-based roles. She has previously been a mortgage adviser and spent the last two years working as a BDM for Metro Bank (UK).
She will report to Fleet’s national sales manager, Graham Le Bas, and be responsible for developing new and existing adviser relationships within her region and providing solutions for their client’s buy-to-let product needs.
Steve Cox, distribution director of Fleet Mortgages, said: “The quality of our BDM team within Fleet grows with Giovanna’s appointment and I am sure advisers and firms right across the South region are going to benefit fully from her experience and skills.
“To have significant mortgage advice and lender experience is a huge bonus for Fleet, and all Giovanna’s relationships, as she fully understands their needs and what we can do as a lender to deliver solutions for them. This is an exciting time for us as a lender as we broaden the scope of our product offering and as we continue to develop our overall proposition.
“For those advisers and firms within the South seeking quality buy-to-let product solutions, we would urge you to contact either Giovanna or our telephone BDM, Maizie, to see how they can help you and your clients.”
