Shawbrook has named Julia Dobell as a new business development manager for its residential mortgages team.
Julia — who has over 30 years of experience in financial services — joins from OneFamily and will focus on engaging with new partners to broaden distribution within the South East region.
She will also aim to build new relationships with key accounts to promote Shawbrook residential mortgages’ brand and products.
Julia said: “As well as further developing my relationship with the intermediary community in the South East region, I look forward to bringing my expertise to develop Shawbrook’s future growth areas.”
The specialist bank has also promoted Jasdeep Bhogal to the newly created position of sales operations manager.
Jasdeep will lead the internal broker support team to assist the field-based BDMs in their development of key relationships, support brokers, and focus on driving the efficiency of process.
David Robinson, sales and distribution director of residential mortgages at Shawbrook, added: "[Julia] brings a depth and breadth of knowledge that will enrich the experience of our valued broker partners.
“Not only that, her experience will be invaluable once we begin to pursue new markets.
“Jas has been a crucial part of our day-to-day operations for some time and I’m delighted that he will be assuming this additional responsibility in support of our brokers and their customers.”
