United Trust Bank (UTB) has appointed Simon Burnell (pictured above) as head of product development for its mortgages and bridging division.

Simon joins the specialist bank from Vida Homeloans, where he was director of sales.

He will be responsible for the monitoring and analysis of UTB’s existing mortgage and bridging products to ensure the bank maintains competitiveness and market share, as well as identifying and delivering new mortgage products and lending volume in line with UTB’s growth strategy.

Buster Tolfree, commercial director of mortgages at United Trust Bank, said that it had been a busy and successful first three years in the mortgage sector for the bank.

“Simon’s appointment in this new role increases our capability to deliver innovative new products, while continuing to ensure that our current suite remains competitive.

“Simon will work closely with [me and Mike Walters] as we evolve UTB’s offering both in terms of products and distribution.

“We are recruiting experienced industry professionals who can help us in the next exciting phase of the bank’s growth and we are investing in technology to improve the broker and customer experience.

“We have already made a significant and positive impact on the specialist mortgage sector and we look forward to even greater success in the future across a wider spectrum of mortgage lending.”
