Introducing our new bigger Intermediary Sales Team

The Society is growing, and so is our Intermediary Sales Team. In fact, to support brokers better than ever before, we’re doubling our number of office-based BDMs.

At the helm of our Intermediary Sales Team are Carolyn Thornley-Yates (Director of Mortgage Proposition) and Laura Sneddon (Head of Mortgage Sales). Between them, they have more than 45 years of experience in financial services. With their vast expertise in specialist lending, they are passionate about building ever-stronger broker relationships, with solution-based lending at the core.

Jade Wooldridge is our field-based BDM for the south, and Joe Entwistle for the north and midlands. Both are highly experienced, and eager to give brokers and their clients the best lending experience in the industry. Their dynamic and refreshing can-do attitude is echoed and supported by the whole team to make that experience a reality.

Elizabeth Atkins is our Internal Sales Team Leader. Together with four office-based BDMs – Richard Cunningham, Georgia Smith, Sophie Hancock, and Lisa Paxton – they’re available in an instant to answer your questions and guide you to a solution. Field and office-based BDMs are also now paired up, closely supporting each other and their clients to develop seamless and rewarding relationships. 

And enhancing the team even more, we’ll soon be appointing a National Account Manager. It’s a team of brilliant and highly experienced people, with unique personalities but with one big thing in common. They all love to say ‘Yes!’ and they’ll move mountains to get you there. They aim to achieve that with the help of our specialist mortgage products, including:

Income Flex: for clients seeking a higher income multiple, featuring a x5.5 income multiple with no minimum income requirement.

Credit Flex: for clients with adverse credit, for which we can even consider a history of CCJs, IVAs, or bankruptcy.

Joint Borrower Sole Proprietor: our super-flexible ‘borrowing booster’, allowing up to four borrowers on a joint application, including non-family members.

• Tailored Term: a made-to-measure mortgage element enabling different applicants to share the mortgage over different timescales.

Together with our manual reviewing process, supported by MRC Live – our virtual Mortgage Referrals Committee events – the team is proud to say: Hinckley & Rugby is your flexible friend.
