Air names new business development consultant

Lending platform Air has appointed Nicola Palmer (pictured) as senior business development consultant to lead its recently refreshed proposition.

Palmer has worked in financial services for almost three decades and brings with her a wealth of experience gained in both business development and adviser roles. Most recently, she was a key account manager at Canada Life, where she was awarded Best BDM at the 2022 Equity Release Awards.

In her new role, Palmer will engage with potential and existing partner firms, as well as advisers, as they look at how they use the range of Air products including Air Club, Air Sourcing, and Air Academy to build and increase their business levels and income.

Palmer said she was thrilled to be joining Air, which recently relaunched its proposition and revamped its adviser CPD training program via Air Academy.

“There are lots more exciting developments happening behind the scenes at Air and I can’t wait to get out there and discuss these propositions with new and existing contacts,” Palmer added.  

Jon Tweed, distribution director at Air, remarked that Palmer was a great addition to the team and that he looked forward to working closely with her.

“Air is committed to supporting all brokers and lenders operating in the later life lending sector, no matter how large or small, and Nicola will be an integral part of strengthening and deepening our relationships with both new and existing contacts moving forward,” he said.
