United Trust Bank (UTB) has appointed Avison Warren (pictured above) as its mortgage operations manager.
The newly created role will focus on delivering fintech and digital solutions projects, alongside process improvements within the bank’s introducer-led proposition.
Avison will work alongside Buster Tolfree, commercial director of mortgages at UTB, as it prepares for considerable growth and expansion in the mortgage sector.
Buster said: “Avison brings a great deal of real-world experience in delivering significant IT and change projects in a high-growth mortgage business.
“His skills and knowledge make him a valuable addition to the team of recognised industry experts we’ve brought together at UTB to enable us to move our mortgage business up to the next level.”
Avison was previously at Accord Mortgages, where he served as operations manager for lending shared services and was responsible for the new lending department, which included overseeing 100-plus staff.
Buster added that UTB was “investing in great people”, and he “couldn’t be more excited about the next chapter of UTB’s mortgage story”.
