On the 1st December, specialist lending industry heavyweight, Roger Morris, will be appointed as Director of Sales and Distribution for the Mortgage Division at Tandem Bank.
Roger will be directly responsible for building intermediary mortgage business and leading the team at Tandem, reporting directly to Steve Beard, MD Mortgage Division.
Roger, who left One Savings Bank (OSB) in August this year, had been responsible for much of the success of specialist lender, Precise Mortgages, which later became part of OSB.
Roger Morris said:
“Tandem Bank has serious plans to become a Premier Division player with multiple lending channels that cover every requirement that a broker might be asked for by their clients. The chance to plan and oversee the establishment of Tandem as a major force in the market was too good to pass up. I am excited about Tandem’s prospects and looking forward to building the mortgage division so it can take its place at the top table of specialist lenders.”
Steve Beard, MD of Tandem’s Mortgage Division, commented:
“Roger’s wealth of industry experience across all sectors of the market and his proven ability to deliver at the highest level are apparent for all to see. His engagement with the intermediary market at all levels and his commitment to educating and informing brokers about the technical and regulatory complexities surrounding channels such as BTL, have made him well known across the industry. We are delighted he chose to join us.”
