Sales managers Marc Champ and Steve Matthews are to leave specialist lender Shawbrook.
The pair are said to be leaving next month to ‘pursue new opportunities.’
Champ has been with the lender since August 2015 while Matthews has been with the company since January 2014.
Recently promoted head of sales Gavin Seaholme will assume responsibility for the bulk of the key accounts across Champ and Matthews’ regions of London and the South East.
Shawbrook has been hit with several departures so far this year, including that of managing director of residential mortgages Maeve Ward. Deputy chief executive Stephen Johnson will leave this month.
Champ says: “I have been fortunate to work with some leading lights of the specialist market over the past three years and am hugely grateful for the experience. I look forward to working with Gavin over the next few weeks to make sure the transition is a seamless one, and that the brokers within the region are fully supported”.
Matthews says: “It’s been an incredible journey with Shawbrook, and at the moment it’s definitely half heartbreak and half excitement as I look at the next stage of my career in the industry. I value the close relationships that I’ve formed with our broker partners and the Shawbrook teams over the years, and wish everyone all the best for the future. There’s still plenty to do and I’ll be working with Gavin over the next four weeks to make sure the region is fully supported”.
Shawbrook sales director Emma Cox says Champ and Matthews “have been part of the Shawbrook family for some time and I fully support their decision to grow their careers in another direction.”
“With Gavin’s move into the Head of Sales role, it represents a great opportunity for him to focus on this key region where I have every confidence that he will build on their success, whilst driving the direction and the agenda of the wider National team,” she adds.
