Brian Pitt joins TFC

TFC has appointed Brian Pitt to prepare for the next stage of development in the distribution market place.

Pitt was formerly a director at Beacon Homeloans and a consultant at Kensington Mortgages.

He left the latter role after the lender ignored his advice to enter into the commercial sector.

Andrew Brown, managing partner at TFC, says: “There is a tidal wave of opinion that in order to prosper as a serious distributor in the mortgage market, the development of technology is essential.

“TFC intends to be at the forefront of that revolution and it is widely known that we have been developing our own IT platform over the last year.

“Brian has vast experience in the mortgage sector and we are delighted that he has chosen to help us prepare our business for the huge changes that are ahead.”

Pitt adds: “I have known the team at TFC for a number of years and they have always been one of the more forward thinking mortgage distributors.

“The organisation has ambitious targets in both technology development and service delivery and I am looking forward to helping them build the infrastructure to achieve these goals.”

In my day job as a communication and management consultant, I’m often asked to evaluate the effectiveness of corporate communications and then deliver or refine internal and external strategies. I find that to support my recommendations, it helps to show clients examples of best and worst practice.
