Centrepoint appoints Warren as non-executive director

Centrepoint has appointed compliance specialist Bill Warren as a non-executive director.

He has 37 years experience in the mortgage industry and is compliance director of Complete Mortgage and Loan Services.

He is also a director of the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries.

Warren joined Lloyds Bank on leaving school, and went on to sell insurance for an insurance company and a number of major lenders. For the past 10 years he has focused on compliance issues and was national compliance manager of the Mortgage Code Compliance Board.

Centrepoint has also made two senior appointments in operations and sales.

Maxine Harrison, general manager of Centrepoint, has been made operations director, while Jeremy Blount moves from Select and Protect to become head of sales and marketing.

Harrison spent the early part of her career working in credit control for Barclays and later moved to the insolvency department of Bass Brewery.

Blount was a former sales director of Select and Protect.

He started his career as a management trainee with Lloyds and Black Horse Financial Services, where he spent eight years working in the financial services and mortgage market.

Lee Titcumb, managing director of Centrepoint, says: “Maxine’s promotion recognises the integral part she has played in the company’s success and will allow her to take a more strategic role in its future development.

“Jeremy has an impressive track record in the industry and his appointment is a real coup for Centrepoint, while Bill’s expertise in compliance will make him a valuable addition to the board.”
