West One Loans Hires Jez Quinn as National Account Manager


The buy-to-let division of specialist home finance lender West One Loans has appointed Jez Quinn (pictured) as national account manager, which is a new role for the division.

Quinn was previously Business Development Manager at Masthaven Bank for about three years and previously BDM at Secure Trust Bank for almost two years.

Masthaven Bank has announced that it will withdraw from the UK banking market over the next two years after a strategic review of the business.

Previously, he worked at The West Brom for just under a decade in a variety of roles including BDM, Head of Retail Mortgages Team and Head of Direct Mortgages Team.

In her role, Quinn will help develop and grow relationships with a wide range of brokers.

The company said its buy-to-let division had “significantly expanded distribution” over the past year and that Quinn’s appointment would fuel further growth.

Andrew Ferguson, managing director of the buy-to-let division at West One Loans, said Quinn would work closely with brokers to “deliver our pragmatic, flexible and expert service”.

He added that this appointment was “a key part of our strategy to become ‘the go-to option’ for buy-to-let brokers”.

Ferguson said: “He will work with brokers, reviewing each case thoroughly and ensuring we support clients with the smooth and safe purchase or remortgage they need. We have set ambitious goals for this year and are confident that our investment in human resources will support these growth plans.

West One’s buy-to-let division specializes in complex transactions including large portfolios, large exposure blocks, HMOs/MUFBs, vacation rentals and will consider expat applicants.

The lender recently enhanced its proposition by launching a green second mortgage and adding seven-year and lifetime follow-on products.

It also hired four underwriters and a completion case manager in its buy-to-let division.
