Salans, the brokers’ specialist conveyancer, has appointmed sales and marketing specialist Richard Carson to develop its customer base.
Carson has over 20 years experience of the financial sector having worked for 17 years at the Market Harborough as marketing and branch operations manager.
After leaving Market Harborough, he became general manager for business development at Mutual One, which is owned by nine building societies, the majority shareholder being Skipton.
Caroline Havers, partner at Salans Bromley office, says: “We’re very lucky to have someone of Richard’s experience and expertise join us.
“Carson will be tasked with further developing the sales and market proposition at Salans and in particular, working with managing and developing the existing customer base.
“Carson has vast experience from within Salans’ customer sector which provides a genuine understanding of our clients businesses and the challenges that they face in the market.
“This gives us a tremendous platform to be able to go to customers with propositions that complement rather than clash with their businesses.
“For too long now, providers in the conveyancing market have tried to dictate processes and distribution that suits them and not their intermediary customers, and we’re breaking that mould.”
Carson, sales and marketing manager, adds: “I’ve seen for myself how successful Salans has been in developing new services for its clients and it’s my job to see how we can maximise sales in the various mortgage related conveyancing and remortgage products and services.
“There are also a number of supplementary areas of added value for the lending market which remain a focus especially in the areas of lender debt recovery and repossession services.
“It’s great to be joining such a well-known and well-respected firm.”
