Pepper Money has appointed Steve Mannakee as regional development manager for London and the South East.
Mannakee has 20 years’ experience in financial services at companies including HSBC, Lambeth Building Society, Cheltenham & Gloucester and most recently Aldermore where he was a regional sales manager.
Pepper Money sales director Rob Barnard says: “I worked with Steve for seven years at Aldermore and he’s a really passionate guy who understands what an important role a good development manager has in helping intermediaries to place their interesting cases.
“He is tenacious and always works hard for the broker – I am really looking forward to working with him at Pepper Money.”
Mannakee adds: “Pepper is making a real impact in the specialist market, with its ‘what you see is what you get’ approach to mortgage lending.
“This is a very exciting opportunity to work with Rob and his team to develop the business with brokers and specialist distribution partners in East London and the South East of England.”
