Dev Malle has joined Doug Crawford, his old boss at Personal Touch Financial Services, at conveyancing services provider myhomemove.
It was announced that Malle was leaving PTFS at the end of July this year but he was tight lipped about his next step.
Malle was the latest in a series of high profile departures from the network, with its former chief executive Crawford leaving in February this year, along with its director of IFA services John Ruddick and head of sales development Andy Walton. He had worked at PTFS in October 2006 from Pink Home Loans where he was sales director.
But Mortgage Strategy can now reveal that he’s joined myhomemove as group director of sales.
Crawford was Malle’s boss from March 2010 and after he left PTFS this year took up the chief executive role at myhomemove.
Myhomemove was established in 2000 and provides conveyancing and panel management services.
The firm’s latest accounts show it to have achieved profits before tax of £994,000 in 2011, compared to a loss of £980,000 in 2010.
Crawford says that to have secured an individual of Malle’s calibre has been a positive move.
He says: “Dev had a number of options available to him and his decision to join is an endorsement of our market position, ambition and strategy.
“He has a strong track record of delivery and will bring drive, market knowledge, relationships and skills that will enable us to move our sales activity to the next level and strengthen the great management team we have in place.”
