Former Personal Touch Financial Services head of lending Neil Hoare has been appointed commercial director at network Homeloan Partnership.
Hoare left his role at PTFS last month after the network restructured its sales team. He has previously led sales teams at Pink Home Loans and Abbey, now branded as Santander.
He says: “I am excited to be joining a network that has plans for growth both by developing the business of its membership and recruitment of new firms through its focus on mortgage and protection.
“One area of real enthusiasm is technology, and it’s clear Homeloan Partnership has this at the heart of its strategy and will feature as a key differentiator in 2015.”
Homeloan Partnership chief executive Chris Tanner adds: “Neil brings with him a wealth of experience in connecting our business partners with advisers and he will be working closely with both to meet the high expectations of customers in a post-MMR world.”
