Pepper Money has hired Phil Quinn (pictured above) for the new role of national account manager.
Phil was previously regional development manager for Greater London at Pepper before being promoted to his latest position.
In his new role, Phil will work with Pepper’s key distribution partners, including networks, clubs and specialist distributors.
Clare Jarvis, acting sales director and head of national accounts at Pepper, said the new role demonstrated Pepper’s commitment and focus on building mutually beneficial long-term relationships with its distribution partners.
“He’s made a real impact since he joined Pepper Money last year and his experience in selling our proposition to many large, multi-adviser firms – combined with his wide industry knowledge – will be invaluable in assisting me in growing our market share with our networks, clubs and specialist distributors.”
The role has been created after Pepper revealed in September that it was planning to establish a project to create a new entity to seek authorisation for a banking licence.
“It’s so important for any lender to build strong collaborative partnerships with its distributors and I’m looking forward to working alongside our partners to grow awareness of Pepper Money and the hassle-free way we can help brokers find a home for their interesting cases,” said Phil.
John Coffield, head of mortgages at Paradigm Mortgage Services, felt that when specialist lenders worked closely with distributors, it was the brokers and their clients who benefited.
“Specialist lending is all about understanding and – by appointing Phil to the new role of national account manager – Pepper Money has demonstrated that it understands the importance of relationships to get deals done.”
