OneSavings Bank makes clutch of appointments


OneSavings Bank has hired a number of staff across its Kent Reliance, InterBay Commercial and Prestige Finance brands.

The bank says the hires will help it get closer to intermediaries and other business partners.

Kent Reliance has hired four senior business development managers.

James Forth and Helen McKinney both join from Virgin Money and will be responsible for the North and Midlands respectively.

Simon Wilson and Andy Williams have also joined, both from Nationwide for Intermediaries. Wilson will cover London and areas within the M25, while Williams will focus on the South.

Scott Phillips has also joined as a national account manager and will be responsible for Kent Reliance’s relationship with its broker partners, along with Becki Fraser.

All the new hires report to head of national accounts Steve Seal who joined from Virgin Money in January.

OneSavings Bank sales director Adrian Moloney says: “These key hires are a statement of intent, bolstering the team to expand our intermediary network across the UK.

“All bring with them a deep industry knowledge and wealth of contacts in these regions.”

The bank has also appointed former Prestige intermediary relationships head Darrell Walker to become head of sales across Interbay Commercial and Prestige Finance.

Walker will keep responsibility for Prestige’s broker relationships but will also lead the InterBay Commercial sales team and key partners.

Prestige Finance has also hired Karen Rodrigues as their new national account manager.

Rodrigues switches to Prestige Finance after three years with Kent Reliance, where she was responsible for business development and account management amongst national intermediary networks, clubs and packagers.
