John Charcol managing director Walter Avrili (pictured) is to take on a new role at the broker as ‘director of product and mortgage technical.’
Avrili began his career at the independent broker in 1984 and the role change is intended to ‘enhance relationships with lenders while also improving the technical expertise the national broker can offer clients and providers.’
The broker says that under Avrili’s leadership, the mortgage technical team will work with lenders to tailor products to meet client needs.
It will also invest in specialist training for its advisers on complex lending requirements.
Avrili has appointed Nick Morrey, who has been with John Charcol for 10 years, as mortgage technical manager with immediate effect.
Avrili says: “Our Mortgage Technical Service has always been a key part of what sets John Charcol apart from its competition. As the mortgage market becomes ever more complex, it’s essential that we respond to the needs of our clients by investing even more in training and product development to enhance our competitive edge. “As an internal resource for our team of mortgage experts and through our external relationships with lenders we have exciting plans to develop, grow and improve the service, expertise and advice we can offer our clients while also seeking to bring innovation back to the industry.”
