Pitt and Aitken join Kensington Group

Brian Pitt and Stuart Aitken have joined Kensington Group to investigate key strategic opportunities presented by the specialist lending sector.

Pitt was previously director at Beacon Homeloans and Aitken was director of credit at South Pacific Mortgages Limited.

John Maltby, group chief executive at Kensington, says: Kensington Mortgages pioneered the specialist lending market in 1995 and earlier this year received the Queens Award for Enterprise for its innovation in this sector.

But innovators do not stand still and we will continue to take our pioneering approach to different markets, where we can really make a difference with our lending criteria, consistent service and competitive risk-based pricing.

I am delighted to have Brian and Stuart on board to help explore the opportunities we have identified.

Pitt adds: Kensington has successfully developed propositions across a number of product areas, varying distribution channels and in different countries.

We will initially be building a team to explore expansion possibilities that will add to the Kensington proposition.
