Amber appoints Sutcliffe

Amber Homeloans has appointed a new development manager for the north, Graham Sutcliffe.

The company says this will enable the company to give regional support to mortgage packagers and panels in the north of England and Scotland.

Sutcliffe graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University with a degree in Urban Development and Economics, before beginning his career in financial services as a mortgage underwriter for Abbey National in Bradford. In 1998, he moved to Cambridge, where he spent three years as a mortgage adviser for Cambridge Building Society.

Prior to his appointment at Amber, he spent three years as an independent financial adviser for Bradford & Bingley, based in Otley and Yeadon.

Mike Perry, associate director of sales and marketing at Amber, says: “Recent growth has made it necessary for us to increase the service to the mortgage packagers and panels we deal with. Sutcliffe has great experience in the lending market and will enable Amber to offer a additional and valuable level of regional support.”
