Marcus reports to SPML’s director of credit and is responsible for the efficient processing and prudent underwriting of packaged mortgage applications from receipt through to issue of the formal mortgage offer.

Currently, approximately 50 staff based in SPML’s head office at Kensington and remotely in business partners’ offices report into him. With 25 years in the mortgage industry, Marcus joins SPML from GMAC and prior to that he was at Alliance and Leicester, Prudential and Sun Alliance.

Stuart Aitken, SPML’s director of credit said “We are delighted to have Marcus heading up the new business team. His wealth of experience in the mortgage sector and proven team leadership skills will prove invaluable to the company as we continue our rapid growth and extend on-site underwriting to more of our strategic packaging partners in the future.”
