CDS Group appoints Barbara Carr

Barbara joins CDS from the Shepshed Building Society where she was head of business development and other career highlights include being an award-winning BDM with Accord and intermediary development manager at RBSIP. Barbara will be the first point of contact for brokers in the Midlands, North, Wales, Scotland and NI and will report directly to the sales director.

Ian Merriman, sales director for CDS Group, said: “We have had a terrific response to the launch of TheCore mortgage sourcing system and the Microsoft-based ClientCore CRM solution and are lucky to have someone of Barbara’s skill to promote these products to the intermediary market.

"Barbara brings with her a vast amount of skills and experience in the UK mortgage market and we are very pleased to have her on board.”

Carr added: “There is no doubt that there is a desire in the market for more modern and flexible sourcing solutions and I believe that the CDS products offer a significant improvement to existing old systems. I have spent many years working with brokers to understand how they work, and how they want to work and technology has not always closed that gap. TheCore offers a host of improvements in the fields of accuracy and flexibility and I am excited to be tasked with taking the product to the intermediary market.”
