Norton Home Loans promotes manager to head of sales

Norton Home Loans has promoted David Binney (pictured) to the role of head of sales, tasked with leading the team in working with brokers on finding solutions for their non-standard clients.

Binney has been at Norton Group for nearly seven years, having previously worked as an underwriter for Relax Finance. He became a broker account manager at Norton Broker Services in 2015, before moving to the role of national business development manager at Norton Home Loans in 2017. He was then promoted to commercial manager in May 2021 before his latest promotion.

Norton Home Loans claims it can offer a range of specialist first charge mortgages to customers whose circumstances would see them rejected by other lenders for reasons such as heavy adverse and non-standard construction properties.

It lends on Right to Buy, and said it bases lending on the valuation, not the purchase price. The lender also boasts about having a simple process, saying it can walk brokers through an application step-by-step with hands-on service.

Paul Stringer, managing director at Norton Home Loans, said that he was delighted to promote Binney to the position of head of sales, adding that the promotion was very much deserved.

“I know that he will bring a huge amount of energy, enthusiasm and knowledge to the role, helping us to continue to grow the number of brokers we work with and the number of customers we are able to help,” Stringer remarked.

Commenting on his appointment, Binney said he was pleased to take on the new challenge that the role brings.

“We have a number of great niches at Norton Home Loans, which could provide excellent solutions for brokers to help their clients who do not meet the criteria of mainstream lenders,” he noted. “Our job now is to get the message out and work with brokers on placing their difficult cases.”
