Hodge Lifetime has been promoted James Young to the newly-created position of national account manager.
Young, previously a business development manager, will be responsible for managing existing and new intermediary relationships.
He will report to Hodge’s business development director, Steve Cox.
Hodge recently launched into the mainstream mortgage market with a 55+ interest-only product.
Cox says: “As Hodge Lifetime establishes itself in the mainstream mortgage market on the back on the hugely successful launch of our 55+ interest-only product, it was clear James was perfect for the newly created national account manager role as we expand our intermediary facing team.
“James’s extensive knowledge and experience of the equity release sector is invaluable to us as our lifetime mortgage proposition will remain core to our business strategy. James’s professionalism will serve us well in the wider intermediary market, and I wish him every success in this new role.”
