David Finlay takes temporary charge of Barclays’ direct channel

Barclays intermediary channel director David Finlay has assumed responsibility for the bank’s direct mortgage channel on an interim basis.

Finlay was given the role following the decision of managing director, regulated customer advice Philip Northey, to leave the bank last month.

Finlay will run the bank’s branch and telephony channels alongside his current role until the bank makes a decision on what to do with the position.
