He has previously held supervisory roles with Pink Home Loans / PRIMIS Mortgage Network and a field compliance role within TMA, developing compliance propositions and providing support and guidance to directly authorised firms.

At SimplyBiz, Lovell will be supporting advisers with compliance and T&C, working closely with the mortgages team, representing the compliance team at mortgage events around the country, and engaging with lender partners.
