The Mortgage Alliance (TMA) has appointed Dennis Bennett to its business development manager team.
He joins TMA from Abbey for Intermediaries (AfI). During his tenure of six years with AfI he was involved in the launch of the Abbey new build proposition, held positions as a regional key account manager and more recently as a business development manager (BDM) within the South East sales region.
Prior to joining Abbey he worked for Halifax in the intermediary sales department within the London and Essex areas.
Bennett’s role will be built around establishing regular contact with directly authorised intermediaries within the London and South East areas both in terms of developing existing relationships and attracting new members to the TMA proposition. He will liaise with members to support and facilitate training as well as providing sales ideas and help DAs explore new product areas to expand and increase revenue streams.
Phil Whitehouse, head of TMA, said: “We feel [Bennett’s] vast experience of the intermediary market will be of great benefit to both existing and potential new members. It remains a tricky marketplace in which to operate which only goes to illustrate the importance of supporting brokers in their business needs. It’s increasingly vital to provide brokers with access to a range of products and services in order to fully accommodate client requirements and this extra level of support will help us to continue building on our core proposition.”””
