Vertex poaches Mark Webster from HML

Financial services outsourcer Vertex Financial Services has appointed HML head of business development Mark Webster as its director of business development.

Webster was at HML for 16 years. His role at Vertex will be to support sales director Adam Oldfield and grow the firm’s portfolio, which includes ING, Virgin, BM Solutions, Tesco and JP Morgan.

Vertex managing director Robert Coyle says: “Now is the time for us to concentrate on selling our services to the financial services world. We have spent many years focusing on developing the most robust and highest quality business process outsourcing software and service, and we are confident that today we can give clients the best systems that are currently on offer.

“With his connections and experience in this market, we are sure that Mark will help us to take this message to lenders and other prospective clients.”

In January, Money Marketing revealed Skipton Building Society had taken subsidiary HML off the market. In May 2011, talks between Vertex and Skipton Building Society over the sale of HML had broken down.
