Kaszczak thought to have joined Lehmans

Louis Kaszczak is believed to have joined Lehman Brothers in a senior mortgage group role.

Kaszczak, who quit his position as head of corporate distribution at RBS Intermediary Partners last October, is thought to have started work at the company last week in a position that will see him working across its mortgage brands, which include Southern Pacific Mortgages Limited and Preferred Mortgages.

It is believed he will be based at its Broadgate offices in the City rather than Lehman Brothers’ UK headquarters in Canary Wharf.

Kaszczak’s departure from RBS Intermediary Partners last year came as a shock to the mortgage industry.

Since that time his name has been linked to a number of other roles in the mortgage market, including lenders such as Cheltenham & Gloucester and new entrant edeus.

Kaszczak will be the latest high profile signing to Lehman Brothers, following Guy Batchelor, former sales and marketing director of Platform, who was poached by the company six months ago.

Batchelor is due to start his role at Lehman Brothers on Friday January 26.

Both Kaszczak and Lehman Brothers declined to comment.
