YBS Commerical creates London hub and revamps sales division

YBS Commercial Mortgages has implemented some changes to its sales team this week, as part of its ambitious growth strategy with broker and client support at its heart.
The commercial lender has taken the decision to create a new London Hub, with a new regional director at its helm, supported by a new team of relationship directors - who have been deployed from existing internal teams. The new hub will have a business development focus at its core, with the aim of building a strong presence in the London area. 

Recruitment for the role of regional director is now complete, with Andrew Edwards, an internal candidate, taking on the position, which is based at the Yorkshire Building Society Kensington branch, on Kensington High Street. 

Andrew, who is currently regional lead for the South-East team, commented: “I’m really looking forward to taking our products and propositions to even more brokers and customers across the London area and adding even more value to the business.”

Andrew will be working closely with other team members of the new London hub, including senior relationship directors Mark Setchell and Gaynor Morgan; and relationship director Dan Sloman.

Tom Simpson, managing director for YBS Commercial Mortgages, said: “As a lender who can operate in any part of England and Wales, a nationwide presence is vital. London is a crucial market, and we’re thrilled that we’re now able to execute our plans to build out our presence in the region."

"That’s why I’m delighted that Andrew has accepted the role of regional director for the London hub. This is another great example of supporting and promoting internal colleagues, and I wish Andrew all the best as he embraces his new role, growing our distribution reach in this area, in line with our strategic ambitions as a business."

"As a strong, stable lending partner, we’re focussed on providing a dedicated personal service to all our brokers and their clients, wherever they are based. This move will enable us to strengthen our offering in the commercial market.”
