Stonebridge appoints new BDM for the South West

Mortgage and insurance network Stonebridge has announced the appointment of Nicole Emery (pictured) as new business development manager (BDM) for the South West region. 

Emery will be a field-based BDM working closely with the network’s appointed representative (AR) firms and their advisers across a range of areas, including client bank management, strategic planning, sales development, lead generation, business referral opportunities, and recruitment. She will be reporting to Natalia Kennewell, senior business development manager. 

Emery was a mortgage adviser prior to joining Stonebridge and held roles in other sectors where she provided business support, consultancy, training, and mentoring to a network of advisers.  

“At Stonebridge, we pride ourselves on the ways in which we support our AR firms, and having experienced individuals to work closely with advisers is often cited as one of the key benefits of joining and staying with us,” Rob Clifford, chief executive at Stonebridge, commented.  

“We are therefore very pleased to be able to welcome Nicole to the BDM team and, given her skill set and experience, we believe she will be a real asset to our member firms and the individuals she will be working with.  

Clifford added that having people who are directly experienced in the mortgage advice sector is critical to helping broker firms develop their proposition and to ensure they make the most of all the opportunities that exist.

“I’m sure Nicole will make a real difference and Stonebridge will continue to add considerable expertise to this part of the business in order to help tailor strategies that deliver continued success for all,” he said.
