QDL appoints broking service manager

Quick Decision Loans, the Farnborough based sub-prime loan packager, has appointed Jackie French as broking service manager.

The role has been created to coordinate the service that brokers can expect when they deal with QDL.

Having worked for Royal Mail as logistics manager for five years, French was responsible for setting the service benchmarks at a variety of call centre operations involving the provision of good service to both business and the public.

More recently Jackie has provided project management in setting up a number of customer service operations, and before joining QDL had just finished project work in Spain for overseas estate agents, Medsea.

French says: I am delighted to be involved with QDL, which has already set high standards in the way it deals with its broker clients. I am looking forward to bringing my experience to bear in building a sustainable and evolving service culture which will lie at the heart of QDLs offering to the market.

Beverley Kinchenton, director of QDL adds: We are thrilled to have Jackie on board. Her experience in the area of customer service will be invaluable to us going forward.

“One of the only ways in which companies can stand out in a competitive market is the quality of the service they offer. Jackie will help us to achieve that.
