Phil Whitehouse joins Promise Solutions

Promise has been making a series of continual improvements this year to ensure it offers intermediaries top end service with increased marketing support, the recruitment of a national BDM to provide onsite assistance to brokers, further investment in its market leading loan sourcing technology and opening up flexible ways that Appointed Representatives and Directly Authorised intermediaries can refer loans to Promise in a fully complaint manner and by whatever means suits them.

Steve Walker, managing director of Promise, said: ‘’I have known Phil for several years when he was employed by several leading organisations and latterly when he ran a Mortgage Club.

“His credentials are second to none and has a wealth of experience in this market to specifically look after Promise’s increasing number of key accounts including Networks, mortgage distribution organisations and larger mortgage brokers’’

Whitehouse added: ‘’I am looking forward to working with Steve and the experienced team at Promise to build upon the great work that has already been done this year.

“With regulation of Secured Loans moving from The Office of Fair Trading to The Financial Conduct Authority in April 2014 it is vital that intermediaries align themselves to the right Secured Loan organisation.

“Over recent years it could be argued that many companies in the mortgage sector simply want to tick the secured loan box as part of their offering.

“I am keen to work with key partners who not only wish to embrace secured loans as a fully compliant and integral part of their business but who also want to educate advisors and make secured loans a significantly more important income stream’’
