Leek United has appointed Deb Bree (pictured above) as a BDM to strengthen its intermediary team following increased demand from brokers.
Deb has worked for the building society for five years, previously serving as a branch manager and telephone BDM.
Prior to Leek United, Deb served as a finance administrator at the Co-operative Bank, where she was based for more than 25 years.
She will work closely with existing brokers — focusing on the South, including London, the South East and the South West — as well as building a network of new introducers.
“I’ll be attending broker training days and working closely with mortgage clubs to show how Leek United’s products can help develop their mortgage business,” said Deb.
Lisa Buckley, head of marketing and mortgage sales at Leek United, added: “Deb has a tremendous amount of experience to offer our broker partners and can help them further understand our latest mortgage criteria to open up new opportunities for them and the society.
“Deb will also deliver a high level of service to brokers and will be proactive in ensuring they have all the information they need to assist their clients.”
