Mansfield BS makes new hire

Mansfield Building Society has announced that it has hired Paul Lewis (pictured) to work as national development manager.

Lewis hails from RBS, where he spent 15 years, most recently working as a senior private banking manager. Previous to that, he spent time at Direct Line Group among other financial services firms.

The Mansfield’s newest hire will lead the five-member mortgage intermediary sales team on its business and development support tasks.

Mansfield commercial development executive Richard Crisp says: “Paul joins The Mansfield at an exciting time, we’ve had several successful years of mortgage growth and we’re looking to build on that success.

“Brokers provide a huge amount of value across the industry and in the current housing market, Paul’s team will be highly influential in making sure that brokers are fully aware of the products and services that we provide.”

Meanwhile, Lewis comments: “So far, I’ve been very impressed with the team ethic across the whole of the Society and I’m really proud to be leading an intermediary team full of expertise – everyone currently working within the team is either CeMAP qualified or has had hands-on underwriting experience.

As we look to build on our existing relationships and forge new ones, not only will we be talking to brokers about our diverse range of mortgage options, we’ll also be devoted to delivering the highest level of service.”
