United Trust Bank (UTB) has announced the appointment of Martin Sims (pictured above) as its national distribution manager.
Martin has over 20 years of experience in the mortgage industry, having previously served as development director at HL Partnership and head of distribution at Castle Trust.
His new role will see him implement UTB’s growth strategy for its mortgages and bridging division and broaden its distribution with networks, mortgage clubs and the direct adviser market.
He will work closely with the commercial directors for the mortgages and bridging division in his new role.
This appointment follows Mike Walters’ promotion to head of sales for mortgages and bridging at the specialist bank.
Robert Owen, managing director of mortgages and bridging at UTB, said: “UTB continues to develop its mortgages and bridging offering both in terms of products and distribution.
“We are investing in technology to improve the broker experience and most importantly we are recruiting experienced industry professionals who can help us in the next exciting phase of the bank’s growth.
“We have made a significant impact on the specialist mortgage sector in a short time and Martin brings a wealth of knowledge to the team as we develop our relationships with networks, clubs and the DA market.
“Put that together with the expanded BDM presence under Mike’s leadership and we are looking forward to even greater success in the future.”
