NatWest Intermediary Solutions has recruited two new business development managers (BDMs) to its phone-based team in Norwich.
Dawn Applegate has been with NatWest for 20 years working for many of them in branches advising customers on a number of financial products. For the last 18 months, she has been a mortgage adviser in the bank’s retail telephony business.
She is CeMAP qualified and will be dealing with a panel of brokers in south-west and central London, Birmingham, Sunderland and Wigan.
Tamara Butler joined NatWest from Vodafone, where, for the last five years, she has been a business manager for the East Anglia region responsible for 18 stores, with a specific focus on small business customers. Previous to that, she held a number of different roles at Phones4U. Tamara will have a panel of brokers in East London, Medway/Kent, Sheffield and Ipswich to work with.
Mark Bullard, head of sales, NatWest Intermediary Solutions, said: “It’s very pleasing to be able to recruit more people to join our successful team of BDMs. Dawn and Tamara are both very capable individuals with the experience and drive to make a real difference to the brokers they will be working with.
“NatWest has a reputation for having the best BDMs in the business and I am supremely confident that they will enhance our position.”
