Metro Bank strengthens mortgage distribution team

The appointment follows a year of ‘significant growth’ for the high street lender with mortgage lending increasing by more than five times throughout 2013.

The lender predicts this growth will continue in 2014, with mortgage lending expected to double over the year.

Morley, who joins from Kensington Mortgages, will be responsible for managing Metro Bank’s mortgage distribution network, both directly through the bank’s stores and through broker partners.

Craig Donaldson, chief executive of Metro Bank, said: “It is a pleasure to welcome Charles to Metro Bank.

“His appointment comes at an important time for us; it follows an extremely successful year and is part of our commitment to grow our mortgage lending even further.

“As the thousands of customers who joined us in 2013 will know, we’re committed to offering them the very best in service and convenience and this will undoubtedly continue in 2014. Charles’ expertise and superb track record in this field will be an asset to the already strong team.”
