Nationwide’s Salter made redundant

Nationwide head of corporate accounts Gary Salter has been made redundant from his role.

Salter is a well-known face in the industry and has been at Nationwide for nine and a half years, joining as regional sales manager before becoming head of corporate accounts in 2012.

Salter told Mortgage Strategy that he was disappointed that his position had been made redundant but is positive for the future.

“I really enjoyed my time at Nationwide, it’s a great company to work for,” he says.

“I’m looking at a couple of opportunities to do something different but intend to stay in the mortgage industry.

“I’ll have a couple of months off but I’ll be back, so watch this space.”

Salter will stay in his role until the end of August.

Nationwide director of intermediary relationships Ian Andrew says: “Following a review of the team structure, the position of head of corporate accounts no longer exists and therefore Gary Salter is leaving Nationwide at the end of August. The Society would like to thank him for his contribution and to wish him every success for the future.”
