Key Solutions has appointed Jason Howells as the brokerage’s training and compliance director.
Howells joins the firm from Legal & General where he spent 18 years working within the bank and building society and intermediary sector as a key relationship manager working with mortgage and protection firms to help them identify areas where they could work more efficiently and building strategies to facilitate this.
Howells’ new role will see him build upon and develop existing processes and procedures to further improve the quality standards of the business.
He will also be tasked with creating and running an internal training academy which will recruit new mortgage and protection advisers and, through a structured learning programme, offer them a route to becoming fully CeMAP and/or associated qualified advisers within the business.
Howells says: “I couldn’t wait to get started on the next stage of my career and this new challenge, and after two days I am already relishing what is in front of me, helping what is already a great business grow, succeed and thrive.”
Key Solutions managing director Anna Pepler says: “To have someone as respected in the mortgage and protection industry as Jason join the gang is incredibly exciting and a huge honour.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Jason on board and we’re looking forward to having the benefit of his considerable experience to help grow Key Solutions and continue to focus on providing a world-class service to our clients.”
