Owen will lead the new department exploring opportunities for United Trust Bank to participate in mortgage markets.
He has over 30 years of experience in the UK banking and building society sectors. His previous roles have included divisional director at Lloyds TSB, chief executive at Matlock Bank where, in 2000, he founded London Mortgage Company, and more recently establishing a consumer finance business for the West Bromwich Building Society – White Label Lending.
Commenting on his appointment, Owen said: “United Trust Bank has built up an enviable reputation for providing great products and an excellent service and I am very pleased to be joining a bank where the customer is always put at the top of the agenda.
“I am looking forward to working with the UTB team to develop new products instilled with the same values brokers and borrowers have come to expect from the bank.”
