Pink’s David Copland takes LSL role

David Copland, chief executive of Pink, has been appointed director of mortgage services at LSL Property Services’ financial services division.

Copland takes responsibility for LSL’s lender relationships, development of mortgage services across the financial services business, mortgage product development and the strategic direction of LSL’s directly authorised distribution.

Mark Graves, director of sales at Pink, is to take on the new role of director of the network. He will have responsibility for the strategic development of the AR network.
Jon Round, group financial services director at LSL, says: “As a result of the recent acquisitions and organic growth, LSL has become one of the largest mortgage distributors in the UK.

“Our strategy of developing the independent propositions of both First Complete and Pink has been a success, and both businesses have seen profitable growth as a result.”

He adds: “We remain committed to this multi-brand approach but recognise that we need greater co-ordination across business functions to benefit from this larger scale.”
