LENDINVEST has promoted its business development manager (BDM) for the South of England to a new head of accounts role, with the aim of making the property investment platform the “lender of first choice.”
Andy Virgo will take charge of the day-to-day relationship management of LendInvest’s distribution network, including mortgage clubs and networks.
He will also be focusing on developing and delivering strategic marketing initiatives.
“I joined LendInvest in 2017 with the aim of assisting in the development of our buy-to-let proposition alongside my BDM duties,” Virgo said.
“As such that new product line for LendInvest has grown from strength to strength, and our next natural step is to increase its reach to more brokers via mortgage clubs and networks.
“Being involved in the internal committees charged with making sure we are the lender of first choice on both product and service is rewarding, and key to achieving that growth.”

Virgo joined LendInvest as a BDM in 2017 with more than 30 years’ experience in both mortgage sales and broking.
He previously held roles at Interbay Commercial, OneSavings Bank, Christie Finance, Natwest Bank, and ran his own property finance brokerage between 2006 and 2011.
“After successfully extending our product distribution and partnering with a growing roster of industry leading mortgage clubs and networks, I’m delighted to announce Andy as champion of these important relationships for the business,” Ian Boden, sales director at LendInvest, said.
“Andy’s extensive experience as both a broker and BDM makes him uniquely qualified to take on this new role, and a challenge I have no doubt he will meet.”
