MEX announces appointment of head of mortage distribution

Mortgage Express today announced the internal appointment of Tim Sturley as head of mortgage distribution.

Sturley, currently head of business development, is replacing Cammy Amaira who is leaving Mortgage Express after 29 years working with the Bradford & Bingley Group, effective November 4 2005. Sturley will be assuming many of Amairas existing responsibilities although the new role includes a wider brief.

Some of the key responsibilities of this role include management of the MEX national sales force (currently 20 BDMs), and relationship management of key national account customers. He will also have a wider remit to review the distribution landscape post M Day, and will be responsible for the management of key sales support processing such as road shows, proc fee paying and exhibitions

Tim Dawson, managing director of Mortgage Express, says Sturley will play a critical role in maintaining the strong relationships between Mortgage Express and its key customers and business partners.

He adds: “Over the past seven years, Tim has been instrumental in seeing the development of Mortgage Express into a market leading specialist lender through innovative product development and a strong, recognised brand.

Sturley says: “I am very pleased to have been given this challenging new role and look forward to building on the strong relationships between Mortgage Express and its key national customers.

“A main priority of mine when I assume this role is to ensure that there are visible mutual benefits for both Mortgage Express and its key national customers that both parties can see a sizeable return on their investments.”
