Platform boosts top team to grow broker business

Platform has made two key appointments to its senior management team as it looks to grow its broker business.

The recruits are Peter Stimson, former commercial director at Checkmate Mortgages, which rebranded to Portillion in March, and John Kilgallon, former head of mortgages at Abbey.

Stimson joins Platform as head of product management while Kil-gallon will be head of planning and proposition.

Helen Gee, marketing manager at Portillion, says: “The plans for our launch are still on course and we are due to announce further developments soon.”
