Accord Mortgages has hired L&G director of mortgages Jeremy Duncombe as its new director of intermediary distribution.
Duncombe has been at L&G since 2013.
He joins Accord on 19 March and will be responsible for improving the lender’s position in the intermediary market.
Duncombe’s departure is the second recent high-profile exit at L&G, with former director, housing strategy Stephen Smith leaving front-line duties last year.
Accord managing director Charles Canning says: “I am delighted to announce Jeremy’s appointment to this newly created role. He is a familiar face to many in the intermediary market and has a wealth of mortgage experience and will be a great asset to Accord and the Yorkshire Building Society Group.”
“We have exciting plans to further develop our mortgage propositions and the service we provide to mortgage brokers in the intermediary market. Having Jeremy at the helm puts us in a strong position to deliver them.”
Duncombe says: “I’m really looking forward to getting started, ensuring brokers remain at the heart of all future developments.”
David Robinson and Chris Maggs will continue in their roles as national intermediary sales manager and buy-to-let commercial manager respectively.
