Melanie Leask has been appointed as director of mortgage servicing, responsible for mortgage servicing, facilities, and management of SPML's mortgage system.
Leask joined SPML in January 1998 and was promoted to executive manager mortgage servicing in April 2001, when she also managed the relocation of SPML's servicing function, customer services, collections and securities, from Kensington to High Wycombe.
Prior to joining SPML, Leask was head of telemarketing at First Mortgage Group and before that had extensive experience in mortgage lending organisations including Citibank and The Mortgage Corporation.
Anthony Keeble has been appointed SPML's finance director. Having joined SPML in November 2000 as chief accountant, Anthony was instrumental in relocating and restructuring the finance department to cope with the demands of the rapidly growing company. He has many years experience in Financial Institutions, including Household Mortgage Corporation and First National Bank.
Keeble is based in the High Wycombe offices where, in addition to the general accounting function, he has responsibility for management information, treasury management, capital markets, securitisation and banking relationships. Anthony is a qualified accountant and a member of the Institute Of Directors.
Bill Cherry, SPML's managing director, says: “We are delighted to announce the internal promotions of Melanie Leask and Anthony Keeble to the board of directors. They have made major contributions to SPML's growth in the past and we look forward with confidence to their success in their new roles as the company moves forward.”
