Pure Retirement expands intermediary sales team

Lifetime mortgage lender Pure Retirement has added Rebecca Sumner to its roster of telephone business development managers (BDMs), boosting its intermediary sales support to advisers in the Central and East regions.

Sumner brings 17 years of financial services experience with her, beginning as a mortgage adviser for a leading estate agent, which saw her obtain her CeMAP qualification. She then embarked on a 14-year stint at Cavendish Equity Release as an adviser, where she became CeRER qualified.

“I’m excited to join a company that offers such amazing service through the product’s lifetime, from the brokers at the start to the client at completion,” Sumner said. “I aim to use my experience as an adviser to help the brokers in my area and facilitate strong relationships between advisers and lender.”

The latest addition to Pure Retirement’s intermediary sales team follows on from the recent appointment of Gary Dalton as field BDM for the North, bringing over 20 years of experience in financial services.

“I love meeting and working with both existing and new advisers, collaboratively driving cross-industry synergies to achieve the best outcome for their clients whilst delivering a world-class service,” Dalton stated.

“It’s no secret that we’re all living in an incredibly changeable world now, and that it’s more important than ever for later life consumers to be finding the right financial solution for their needs,” Scott Burman (pictured), head of distribution at Pure Retirement, commented.

“This will undoubtedly be driven by great service from knowledgeable support being offered to advisers by lenders, and to this end, we’re thrilled to have added two such experienced and talented individuals to our team to truly enhance our offering.”
