Leeds Building Society restructures broker division

Leeds Building Society has restructured its intermediary division, which will be lead by head of corporate accounts Louisa Sedgwick.

Two new roles have been created to support Sedgwick, whose new role is head of intermediary distribution.

The society is recruiting for these national business development positions – one in the North and one in the South. The person in each position will lead a team of six regional development managers.

Sedgwick continues to report to general manager of business development Martin Richardson.

He says: “We have worked hard to establish solid foundations within our intermediary management team and Louisa’s appointment further supports our desire to work closely with our intermediary partners.

“We have enjoyed an excellent start to the year and have the appetite to further increase our lending through intermediaries and improve our service and proposition by continuing to listen, react and innovate.”

Sedgwick says: “I am very excited by the opportunities the restructure will bring as we have invested heavily in our team as lending by the society through brokers has risen.

“The society has made some impressive changes to develop its intermediary proposition over the past few years, both pre- and post-MMR, and we will continue to support the growing needs of our brokers and their customers.”
