Louisa Sedgwick joins the Society after working as a consultant within the financial services industry, specialising in intermediary sales and supplier relationship management, including writing on these topics for trade publications and giving presentations at industry conferences.
During her career Sedgwick also spent 19 years in intermediary sales at Bradford & Bingley.
Martin Richardson, Leeds Building Society’s general manager – business development, said: “I am delighted to welcome Louisa to Leeds Building Society’s intermediary team.
“Her experience working with key accounts and third party suppliers, as well as her extensive industry contacts, will complement and strengthen our existing team at a time when our mortgage lending through intermediaries is continuing to grow.
“One of Louisa’s first tasks will be to commence recruitment of additional account managers, which will happen in the next few months.”
Sedgwick said: “After more than 20 years in financial services, I am enormously excited at the opportunity to be joining Leeds Building Society as it enters a new era of intermediary partnerships.”
