GE plans expansion in UK regions

GE Home Lending is to increase its activity across a number of regions in the UK.

As part of this expansion, it has made two appointments to its mortgage sales team, bolstering activity in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Sally Cooper and Sandy Webster have been appointed as business development managers for GE Home Lending and will work across both the First National and igroup brands.

Cooper previously worked for the Spicerhaart Group as a field sales manager with Mortgages Direct.

Webster was formerly a business development manager at Future Mortgages, where for two years he was responsible for Scotland and Northern Ireland. Prior to this he worked for Cater Allen Private Bank.

Judith White, national sales manager at First National, says: “Driving business and providing quality products and services is our objective and to do this we need a strong and knowledgeable team.”
