Dudley appoints 7 packagers as sole point of access for brokers

Seven specialist distributors will be the sole point of access for mortgage intermediaries looking to use Dudley Building Society’s products.

The seven firms are: All Types of Mortgages, Brightstar Financial, Complete FS, Manor Mortgages, Platinum Options, RHL and Solent Mortgage Services.

The appointments come on the back of a major reshuffle at the mutual, with the promotion in July of Sam Foxall, the ex-head of compliance at packager C2 and the Regulatory Alliance of Mortgage Packagers, to the position of head of distribution and the appointment of Steve Sandiford last week, who was previously mortgage product manager at OneSavings Bank, as its new head of lending.

Foxall says that the mutual has made a conscious decision to work exclusively with the intermediary sector.

She says: ”Working through partners like these, who are not only proactive in marketing our service, but also completely tuned into the needs of advisers and their clients, we are looking forward to developing relationships which will prove to be beneficial to all concerned and particularly the customers of our introducers.”
