Pink appoints Kay Leslie as compliance controller

Pink Home Loans has appointed Kay Leslie to the position of compliance controller from January 1 2005.

She will be responsible for all of Pink’s compliance functions including policy, delivery and training and competence.

Kay is currently a member of the executive management team at the The Mortgage Code Compliance Board and was instrumental in implementing its approach to monitoring both lender and intermediary sectors.

As compliance controller, she was responsible for the day-to-day regulatory supervision of all mortgage brokers and lenders who subscribed to the Mortgage Code. Previously she created a compliance team within the overall project to launch the Egg Internet Bank.

Tony Jones, managing director at Pink Home Loans, says: “I am delighted to bring Kay to the Pink team. She is well known within the industry and brings a wealth of experience with her that will add further impetus to Pinks drive to offer the very best intermediary support.

“I am particularly pleased because Kay shares our view that compliance is simply good business practice.

“Providing great advice and great service to the consumer will generate business opportunities for our intermediary customers.

“Kay has the experience, drive and enthusiasm to ensure we back up our mortgage and insurance service with high quality compliance support and ensure that our customers thrive in the regulatory environment.”

Kay adds: “I am looking forward to the exciting challenge ahead.

“Pink has a strong brand within the sector and I will be keen to ensure that we maximise opportunities for our customers in a compliant framework.

“Compliance should not be seen as a barrier to business, but an opportunity to grow a business.

“Pinks financial strength, combined with the investment it has already made and is planning, will ensure that it continues to develop its proposition.”
