Phil Whitehouse, head of TMA, says: “Having Julie and Lee on board will make a really positive difference to TMA and our members and it is very positive news that we can make these appointments just six months into being a part of the LSL Property Services Group.
“TMA is about more than just providing highly competitive mortgages to our members, it is also about genuinely adding value to their businesses in the areas that they most need it, and that’s exactly what our highly experienced new sales managers will be able to do.”
