Best Advice Network appoints new manager

The Best Advice Mortgage Network, based in Newcastle, has appointed a new business development manager for the Midlands. Ken Smith will be responsible for forging relationships with intermediaries and marketing the network.

Smith joins from Kensington Mortgages where he was a regional sales manager. Previously, he was regional sales manager for buy-to-let specialist Paragon Mortgages in the East Midlands.

He says: “I am very pleased to be joining Best Advice Mortgage Network at a very exciting stage in the company&#39s development. I have every confidence that the Network is set to be a huge success.”

The appointment follows that of Charles Jarrett, formerly of mortgage sourcing system Trigold, at the beginning of December 2002.

Steve Holt, operations director of Best Advice Mortgage Network, says: “The appointment of Ken Smith and Charles Jarrett shows that the Network is committed to supporting its introducers.”
