Heaton joined Mortgage Strategy in May 2006 as business development sales executive to work on the magazine’s related events, such as summits and award ceremonies.
Heaton moved to display sales on the magazine last September but has always wanted to be a mortgage broker. She takes up her new role on Monday.
She says: “I’ve been offered numerous roles in the industry but felt Alexander Hall was the place for me.
“I’ve been working alongside one Hall for the last two years and now it’s time to work for Alexander Hall.”
