Landbay bolsters regional sales team
LANDBAY, the peer-to-peer lender focused on buy-to-let mortgages, has boosted its regional sales team with a new appointment and two promotions.
Helen McKinney has joined from OneSavings Bank as head of sales for the southern region, while Ian Hall and Rob Stanton have been promoted to head of sales roles for their respective regions in the North and the Midlands.
Both Hall and Stanton joined Landbay from Paragon Bank last year.

“Rob and Ian’s progress to head of sales roles is richly deserved, and we are thrilled to welcome Helen to the team,” Paul Brett, managing director of intermediaries at Landbay, said.
“Her thorough knowledge and experience of the industry will play a crucial role in growing our footprint in London and the south.”
Landbay boosted its distribution last month after its products were added to The Right Mortgage & Protection Networks panel.
Earlier this year, Landbay chief executive John Goodall told Peer2Peer Finance News that the platform was renewing its focus on the retail investor in 2019.
He said that the firm is looking to achieve two or three times the level of lending this year that it did in 2018 and wants to boost its retail investor base to help achieve this.
