Trevor Youens to leave Flower

Flower director Trevor Youens is leaving the company to join Home Information Pack specialist the Live Organisation, at the end of this month.

Youens has been with Flower for four years but says it is now time to move on, and will be joining the Live Organisation, part of the First Title Group, as director in a few weeks.

He says: “I have been with Flower for four years now. I took it on when it was struggling and have played a large part in building the business to the success it is today. However, feel it is time to move on and will be leaving Flower at the end of the month and joining the Live Organisation.”

Youens feels that his past experience in the brokerage market will be a huge benefit to him when he joins the Live Organisation.

He says: “I feel that my past experience will be of great benefit to me. I think that HIPs will have a big impact on the mortgage industry, and will have much more of an impact than a lot of people have given them credit for.”

Youens has worked in the financial services industry for over 20 years, since leaving school.

Previous roles for Youens include working as an administration manger for an appointed representative of Royal and SunAlliance, administrator at Equity and Law in High Wycombe, and various other sales and operational roles within the financial services.
