The Right Mortgage and Protection Network has announced Vincent O’Connor as its new head of protection.
In this new role, he will lead the network’s protection offering to their members.
O’Connor has over 25 years of protection experience and joins The Right Mortgage from Royal London where he worked in a protection development and technical role.
He said: “I am delighted to be joining The Right Mortgage & Protection Network as head of protection where I want to bring fresh ideas, energy and focus to the subject of protection within the network.
“Arranging mortgages has been one of the clearest and most obvious reasons for advisers to start the conversation with clients about protection because whilst a mortgage helps to get the home, ‘protection’ means the client won’t lose it, should the worst happen.
“The Right Mortgage & Protection Network believe that proper advice by advisers creates the best client outcomes and my objective in this role is that when it comes to protection; advisers have what they need to continue to have meaningful protection conversations with their clients to help them understand the risks they face.”
Martin Wilson, CEO at The Right Mortgage and Protection Network, added: “With protection such an important area within our industry, now more so than ever, we are delighted to welcome Vincent onboard to really champion protection amongst our membership and beyond. I know he will be a very valuable member of the team and to the network’s future and we look forward to working with him.”
