Bridging lender West One has appointed former V Loans managing director Marie Grundy as sales director.
She brings a wealth of knowledge to the West One team having spent over 20 years in the mortgage sector.
Prior to her time at V Loans she was the head of sales for second charge lender SPPL following stints at the Yorkshire Building Society and Accord Mortgages.
Stephen Wasserman, managing director of West One, said: "We’re delighted to have Marie on board, bringing not only her extensive knowledge of the industry, but also deep relationships with brokers and master brokers.
"As a board member of the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries for over three years, Marie is a well-recognised and respected figure in the specialist lending industry, and we’re sure she will significantly enhance our business development team, as a continuation of a process we began in 2016."
Danny Waters, CEO of West One’s parent company Enra Group, added: “As our group looks to expand its lending proposition beyond the market-leading position we have in bridging finance, it’s vital we build our sales capability accordingly.
"Marie’s appointment is a major step in that direction, and I look forward to her helping us drive our business forward.”
