Kent Reliance – part of OneSavings Bank – has appointed Susan Baillie (pictured above) as a senior business development manager within the lender's northern team.
Susan will report to James Forth, regional sales manager for North England, and help to drive broker relationships in the North East.
With more than 10 years of experience in business development within both buy-to-let and residential mortgages, Susan previously worked at TSB and Nationwide Building Society.
“Having worked in the North East for a number of years, I have a real passion for the area, and I'm looking forward to using my knowledge of the region to help support the team at Kent Reliance,” said Susan.
“This is a company with big ambitions, so I'm really excited by the opportunity to help support growth within the region.”
Simon Cockerill, head of sales at OneSavings Bank, added: “Susan is an experienced BDM who will prove to be invaluable to our team in the North.
“Kent Reliance witnessed strong demand in 2017 and Susan is the last in a series of recent hires we have made to further drive growth in 2018.
“We place great importance on our relationships with our brokers, and Susan's expertise and knowledge will help to further improve the relationships we have with our North East brokers.”
The announcement from Kent Reliance follows a number of recent appointments in January, including James Forth and Alan Kimber as regional sales managers and Helen Comben as a senior BDM for south London.
