New sales manager at xit2

Outsourced processing provider xit2 has appointed a new sales manager to mastermind the company&#39s entry into the packaging sector and other new markets.

Mark Hollands has eight years experience of the lending industry, including roles with GMAC-RFC as key account manager for central London, with Bank of Ireland Group and Yorkshire Building Society.

Holland says: “I am delighted to be joining xit2 at such an exciting time. There is currently a huge amount of pressure on lenders and packagers to reduce the time it takes to process a mortgage application.

“With levels of lending and remortgaging at record highs, and new legislation in the form of seller&#39s packs around the corner, this pressure is unlikely to decrease in the foreseeable future.

“xit2 has some great propositions to help the industry alleviate pressure through the reduction of costs and increased productivity. I&#39m very much looking forward to being a part of the xit2 team and playing a role in this evolution.”
