Paragon’s sales chief to retire after 23 years at the lender

Andrew Lees, head of sales at Paragon Mortgages, is to retire next month after 23 years at the firm.

Lees says his portfolio of clients will be looked after by Moray Hulme, deputy head of sales, following his departure.

John Heron, managing director of Paragon, says Lees has spent most of his career at Paragon and has made an outstanding contribution to the development of its mortgage business.

Heron says: “He is well known in the industry and respected for his experience and expertise as well as his quiet, unassuming manner.

“I know that his friends within Paragon and in the mortgage market are wishing him the best in retirement.”
