Landbay hires new regional account manager

Landbay has announced that Rob Stanton (pictured) will work as a regional account manager covering the Midlands.

Stanton formerly worked at Paragon for 15 years as a senior underwriter and regional manager. His new responsibilities will include managing existing broker relationships alongside the cultivation of new ones.

This latest hire follows June’s appointment of Ian Hall as regional account manager for the north.

The specialist buy-to-let lender points to an increased demand in the specialist BTL sector as a reason for this expansion.

Landbay managing director of intermediaries Paul Brett comments: “Rob’s expertise and experience will strengthen our regional proposition, and help us continue to deliver excellence to our brokers.

“The business is going from strength to strength, with record lending volumes each month and expectations of profitability in the next quarter. The expansion of our team reflects this success and should accelerate our growth further in the coming months.”

Stanton says: “I am looking forward to joining Landbay at a time where the specialist market is growing at an impressive rate, and I hope my experience of the sector can help the continued growth and success of the company.”
