Andy Virgo promoted at LendInvest
Marketplace lender LendInvest has promoted Andy Virgo from business development manager to head of key accounts.
Virgo will be focussing on developing and delivering strategic marketing initiatives and helping to engage potential partners with the business.
He joined LendInvest as a BDM for the South of England in 2017 with over thirty years’ experience in both mortgage sales and broking.
He previously held roles at Interbay Commercial, OneSavings Bank, Christie Finance, Natwest Bank, and successfully ran his own property finance brokerage between 2006 and 2011.
This announcement follows the addition of three new hires to LendInvest’s field-based BDM team in 2019, with the business most recently hiring Jan Gallagher to cover the North West of England.
Ian Boden, sales director at LendInvest, said: “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.
“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.”
Virgo added: “I joined LendInvest in 2017 with the aim of assisting in the development of our Buy-to-Let proposition alongside my BDM duties.
“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.”
