Shawbrook send BDMs on tour

Lee Albino will travel to North Wales, Scotland and the North West of England, while Steve Matthews will cover the Kent and London area.

Karen Bennett, director of sales and marketing of Commercial Mortgages at Shawbrook, said: “I’m confident they’ll be real assets to the team and I’m sure that now that we’ve let them loose on the road, they’ll help us engage with our brokers even more and make sure that we’re taking on board everything they say.

“We look for our BDMs to add value to all their accounts – it’s a true partnership and we want to be part of our brokers’ businesses.”

Albino was recruited from Yorkshire Bank, while he has a decade’s experience of business development roles.

He said: “The recent launch of our heavy refurb STL proves that Shawbrook listens to what our introducers want from lenders. I’m happy to be getting out there to support our broker partners as part of such a dedicated and experienced team.”

Matthews worked with a number of broker networks at Platform, while he has 10 years of experience as both a packager and a business development manager.

He said: “Since I’ve joined we’ve already seen the launch of a new product and with many more innovative ideas in the pipeline, I’m sure 2014 will be a significant year for Shawbrook and I’m thrilled to be part of it.”
