Mortgage Trust has appointed Mick Kirkman as a business development manager in the North.
Reporting to Mortgage Trust’s head of sales Austin Jelfs, Kirkman has extensive experience in the financial services industry gained over the last 25 years, and has spent the past 12 years working in the mortgage market as a business development manager with Royal Bank of Scotland and Coventry.
Jelfs says: Mortgage Trust has an extremely strong product range, strengthened by some highly attractive exclusive arrangements.
“This, together with Micks experience and contacts in the north, means his appointment will allow us to develop our relationships with intermediaries across the region to further establish Mortgage Trust as the buy-to-let lender of choice.
The north of England is a particularly popular area for buy-to-let, as house prices are still rising and producing strong rental returns with continuing demand. This, coupled with a high level of construction projects, makes the region highly sought after for property investors.
Kirkman adds: I am delighted to be joining Mortgage Trust and am looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in the coming 12 months and beyond.
