Gareth Lewis quits Tiuta

Gareth Lewis, head of business development at Tiuta has left the firm.

Lewis, who joined in May, is rumoured to be joining rival Precise Mortgages.

Steven Nicholas, chief executive of Tiuta, says he is sad to see a valued member of the Tiuta team leave but wishes him all the best in his new role. 

He says: “From our point of view, we have no plans to employ an immediate replacement as we have a very strong business development team already in place who fulfil that role, notably Kirsty Buchanan who has flourished at Tiuta since she joined as business development manager in May this year. 

“We have experienced record business levels at Tiuta throughout the summer months and we are looking at a record amount of enquiries already in September. 

“Our focus, as always, is on delivering a quality service and ensuring our brokers and introducers have everything they need in order to complete business with us.”

In April this year Tiuta’s head of marketing Stuart Brumhill and head of business development Guy Garrard both left the firm, along with Tiuta’s regional account managers Gordon Rae and Jim Baker.

England vs Australia: pensions

Well, the cricket season is here, and England and Australia are stepping up to the wicket. Although we compete with each other in the sporting world, when it comes to pensions, Australia’s pension programme is held up as a model for our auto-enrolment initiative. Auto-enrolment was introduced because people weren’t saving enough into their pensions, and it is still early days but signs are positive. However, in Australia, saving into a pension is compulsory, and in fact employers are the ones who have to pay in. Employees in Australia can make additional contributions into their pensions, but they don’t have to. Should the onus be on the employer or employee to save? Well in the UK we think it’s both, but to get ‘adequate’ savings for retirement it’s the employee who has to pay more in.

    Don’t touch this company, they are way too slow on delivering!

    It would seem appropriate for Tiuta to get a revolving door fitted if they dont have one already. One wonders that this hasnt been described as another “restructure.” Seems Denmark isnt the only place with something rotten…
