Bluestone Mortgages is pleased to announce the appointment of Emma Hollingworth, pictured above, as Sales & Marketing Director. Emma will be joining Bluestone from her current role of Strategic Partnership Director at Mortgage Advice Bureau (MAB) on 6th January 2020.
As Sales & Marketing Director, Emma will be responsible for leading Bluestone’s sales and distribution strategy across the UK and strengthening relationships with the lender’s key intermediary partners. Emma will bring to the role 14 years’ experience in mortgage distribution, having begun her career at MSN, before moving onto posts at SimplyBiz, Intrinsic and, most recently, MAB. Emma’s experience will be invaluable in developing Bluestone’s relationships across the intermediary sector as the business looks to further extend its distribution to help underserved customers.
Emma will be joining at an exciting point in Bluestone’s development, with the lender recently announcing a 264% lift in settlement volumes of residential mortgages compared to 2018*, as well as recent enhancements to its products and distribution. These include the launch of Bluestone’s new fees free remortgage product and its partnerships with PRIMIS and Dynamo.
Steve Seal, Managing Director, Bluestone Mortgages, comments:
“We are delighted to be welcoming Emma to the Bluestone Mortgages team. Over the course of her career, Emma has quite clearly demonstrated her ability to drive high-quality service delivery, whilst accumulating a wealth of experience and expertise in the broker market. Having someone with Emma’s skillset on board will be crucial for us as we go into the new year and look to reaffirm our commitment to delivering a first-rate mortgage proposition that meets the demands of brokers and, ultimately, customers. I am confident that with Emma at the heart of Bluestone’s ambitious growth plans, we will be able to further solidify ourselves as a trusted leader in the specialist market.”
Emma Hollingworth, adds:
“I’m incredibly excited to be leading Bluestone’s sales and distribution strategy as it looks forward to another year of strong growth. Bluestone has clearly demonstrated itself to be a lender driven by technology and innovation, and to be given the opportunity to help the business strengthen its intermediary relationships whilst it continues its development is a real pleasure. Looking ahead to 2020, I hope to see Bluestone continue to thrive as the specialist lending market further evolves – watch this space!”
