Paradigm Mortgage Services has appointed Neil Jackson as its new partnership development manager.
Within both the mortgage and protection proposition, Paradigm Protect, Jackson will be focused on developing new relationships with advisory firms, bringing them on board and working with all members to grow cross-sale opportunities within their businesses.
He will also work across all Paradigm Group firms and will be heavily involved in the promotion of all Group propositions including Paradigm Partners’ compliance services, wealth and wrap services via Tatton Investment Management and Nucleus, as well as the mortgage and protection propositions.
Jackson joins Paradigm after holding a number of roles within Abbey and Santander over the past 19 years. Since 2003 he has worked in a national key accounts capacity including latterly both regional sales manager and strategic relationship manager at Santander Asset Management UK.
In total he has over 35 years’ experience in the financial sector, with early roles at building societies, both head office and branches, and as a broker consultant and IFA.
“Everyone at Paradigm Group is delighted to welcome Neil on board in this new role that focuses on our mortgage and protection offering, but also covers off all Paradigm Group propositions,” said Bob Hunt, chief executive of Paradigm Mortgage Services.
“This role is a much broader one than Paradigm has previously developed; our employment opportunities have tended to be more specific and focused on certain brands however given the breadth and depth of experience that Neil brings with him, we believe we have the right person to operate across multiple businesses.
“Neil is steeped in financial services experience gained from strategic roles with a building society, insurance companies, a wrap platform, banks, an asset manager, IFA firms and now IFA distribution. His broad knowledge of wealth management and investments, pensions, mortgages, protection and platforms will add to Paradigm’s business consultancy expertise in creating and delivering stakeholder value by building and managing on-going, mutually-profitable business relationships.
“We now have a significant number of member firms within Paradigm and part of Neil’s role will be to create greater awareness amongst those businesses about what the separate parts of the Group can offer. There is much to be gained for members by looking clearly at what they currently use and what Paradigm can offer and Neil will be focused on delivering real clarity in this area. We are excited to have him on the team.”
Neil Jackson, partnership development manager at Paradigm Group, said: “I am very pleased to be joining one of the UK’s fastest growing businesses and am very keen to help all Paradigm member firms capitalise on the commercial opportunities available across the Group.”
