Guernsey-based Skipton International has appointed Lorraine McLean as its mortgage sales manager in Jersey.
Her role will be to support the Channel Island bank’s Island intermediaries and to assist Director of Lending Nigel Pascoe with the growing mortgage business.
Miss McLean has two decades brings with her 20 years of lending experience and was previously the Mortgages Manager at Acorn .
She said: ‘I am looking forward to taking the Skipton International business on to its next stage as we develop more innovative products for local homebuyers and continue to support our broker relationships. As the housing market is showing signs of recovery I expect this year to be a busy one.”
Mr Pascoe said: “Lorraine is qualified to a high standard and is a very experienced mortgage professional. Soon we are expecting our mortgage business in Jersey to outgrow Guernsey where we have been the leading new mortgage lender for four years running. Lorraine is going to take the lead on providing the support needed in Jersey, whilst I also concentrate on our new UK buy to let lending product.”
Skipton International increased its mortgage lending by 10% in 2013, with December a record month for the bank. Its mortgage product portfolio includes the popular Next Generation Mortgage, designed for Channel Islands’ buyers to get on the property ladder with the support of parents and family members.
Skipton International is licensed to take savings deposits in Guernsey, but as Mrs McLean is based in Jersey, she is unable to assist with any savings-related enquiries which will continue to be serviced through the Guernsey office.
