Nasar Hussain has been appointed by Paymentshield as its new national account manager for the south of England.
He will have responsibility for supporting its network partners and their members.
Hussain (pictured) joins Paymentshield with 18 years spent in financial services. He began his career as a CeMap-qualified mortgage adviser, amassing seven years’ experience with Which?, Nationwide, Lloyd’s Banking Group and Sequence before stepping up into senior management roles with Bank of Cyprus and TSB Bank.
Most recently, he held the position of national account manager at Together Loans and Mortgages.
Emma Green, head of sales at Paymentshield, said: “One of the key elements that sets Paymentshield apart is the strength of our sales team, and landing someone as high calibre as Nasar is a huge coup for us.
“Nasar is well known by our customers and with his experience as a broker along with his GI and sales background, he has a solid understanding of adviser and network needs as well as the expertise to execute our technology-driven sales strategy.”
Hussain added: “I’m delighted to be joining such a forward-thinking organisation which keeps the end-customer at the heart of everything it does. One of reasons I joined Paymentshield is its commitment to offering the very best in support for advisers: be that technology through its Adviser Hub with integrated API capabilities; its panel of insurers delivering a huge breadth in products; or through its consumer and market insight that empowers advisers to offer a personalised approach and deliver the best value to the customer.”
