Enterprise promotes Lovelock to director role

Enterprise Group has promoted Mark Lovelock to director of corporate accounts.

Lovelock has been with Enterprise for four years, working as a regional business development manager and then subsequently as head of corporate accounts.

Lovelock is also responsible for managing and developing Enterprises bespoke partner programme.

The programme is where selected larger and professional packager, appointed representative or IFA firms are given the opportunity to partner with Enterprise, gaining technology, exclusives, additional broker services, training and in some cases access to distribution channels that would otherwise be unavailable.

Each partner is considered based on its existing model, with an overall arrangement designed to specifically meet their capabilities and requirements.

Enterprises contracted relationship with seven of the largest networks in the UK gives it contracted access to over 8,000 mortgage brokers and its bespoke partner programme allows selected partners to have access to some of these brokers.

As Enterprises model is primarily based on safety and process, each partner must follow laid down procedures, with regular audits and training to ensure adherence.

Michael Clapper, chief executive at Enterprise, says: Mark is a quality individual who has proved his capability at corporate level beyond any doubt.

The bespoke partner program is a major strategic development for Enterprise, with three partners already enjoying great success, and two more on induction courses.

I am delighted Mark has accepted this promotion and look forward to his future success.

Lovelock adds: Enterprise has created a fantastic business model and a real opportunity for the right partners.

I look forward to exploring this further with potential partners.
