Appointments to strengthen top team at Portillion

Portillion, formerly known as Checkmate Mortgages, has ann-ounced three appointments to its senior team.

Jim Coleman has been appointed treasury director, Will Foster has joined as financial controller and Helen Bramham has joined as operations manager.

Coleman, who will sit on the executive committee, previously held senior roles at Nationwide Building Society and NatWest. Foster is as a chartered certified accountant with experience at Prudential UK and Aegon Insurance. Bramham was previously at Skipton Building Society for 10 years, mostly with its subsidiary HML.

David Hill, chief financial officer of Portillion, says: “These additions are specialists in their fields and will play a major role in the business.”

The appointments follow the news last week that Peter Stimson, former commercial director at Checkmate, had joined Platform as head of product management.
