Precise Mortgages has promoted Gareth Lewis from head of sales to director of bridging and expanded its sales team with Liza Campion and Chris Parr joining as national sales managers.

Parr has joined Lewis’s bridging team and will manage broker and packager relationships in the north region. He will be responsible for identifying new packagers to go on to Precise Mortgages’ premier panel which attracts higher procuration fees, exclusive products and marketing support. 

Liza Campion has joined as national sales manager in the lender’s near prime and buy-to-let team and will be responsible for working with mortgage packagers.

Campion, who will report to Precise sales director Roger Morris, was previously director of the Association of Mortgage Packagers and Distributors.

Morris says: “Before appointing Liza to the role, I rang a number of our key packagers for their views and to say she received a glowing reference is an understatement. 

”With this appointment, we intend to provide further support to our mortgage packagers so that we can grow our businesses together.”
