Myhomemove recruits Whittaker as sales head

Conveyancing services provider Myhomemove has appointed former Abbey for Intermediaries key accounts director Adrian Whittaker as corporate sales director.

Whittaker will be responsible for maintaining and developing new corporate relationships across all sectors, including brokerages, mortgage networks and clubs and estate agencies. He will report to group sales director Dev Malle.

Malle says: “Adrian has strong relationships already at corporate level with estate agents, intermediaries, networks and lenders and this fits well with our existing corporate customer base.”

In January, Mortgage Strategy revealed Abbey had made Whittaker redundant following a restructure of the lender’s sales team.

Myhomemove has been active in targeting mortgage personalities over the past year, with former Personal Touch Financial Services chief executive Doug Crawford and former PTFS sales director Malle joining in April and October respectively.

London & Country associate director of communications David Hollingworth says: “With Dev and Adrian on board the firm has two very well known and respected people within the mortgage industry. It shows the firm wants to strengthen its ties with the sector.”
