Pepper Money hires new sales director

Pepper Money has appointed Paul Adams as its new sales director. The role entails leading the lender’s strategy to aid brokers finding a home for their cases.

Adams previously worked at Santander, GMAC-RFC and has been a business development manager for Cheltenham and Gloucester.

The new role with Pepper Money will commence in January.

Late last month, the specialist lender added another member to their sales team, hiring Ryan Brailsford to fill the newly created position of head of sales.

Pepper Money chief commercial officer Bob Golden says: “Paul has the perfect mix of experience for Pepper Money.

“His combination of expertise from his previous roles at mainstream and specialist lenders will help us to help more brokers find a home for their interesting cases.”

Adams adds: “Changing demographics, shifting work patterns, and a growing mountain of unsecured debt are leading to more customers whose circumstances don’t meet the automated approach of the high street and the specialist sector is one of the most exciting growth areas in the UK mortgage market.”
