Aldermore has appointed Damian Thompson (pictured above) as its new director of retail mortgages.

His career in financial services – spanning 27 years – started at HBOS before he joined Principality and Newcastle Building Society.

He was customer director and a member of the board at Newcastle and has experience across retail, including mortgages, savings, credit cards and investments.

Since November 2017, Damian has been working at Aldermore in an interim position.

Sue Hayes, group managing director of retail finance at Aldermore, said: “In his interim role, [Damian] has gained very strong support from across the business with his personal and engaging leadership style, leading the mortgages team to deliver later-life lending and new pricing tiers to reach an ever greater number of customers. 

“As we embark on the next stage of our journey as part of the FirstRand Group, Damian will play an integral part of the retail finance strategy helping us deliver for customers and brokers going forward.”

Damian added: “Aldermore has a refreshingly bold and innovative approach to banking and I intend to continue nurturing a culture in our mortgages business that puts customers and intermediaries at the heart of everything we do. 

“Our vision is to build and expand on this to help people seek and seize opportunities with straightforward financial solutions for every stage of their life, from buying their first home, to getting funding for those dream retirement plans, and everything in between.”
