Glasgow-based specialist lender, The Mortgage Lender (TML), has made a number of new appointments, including two senior team members, as it invests for growth following a successful launch earlier this year.
Peter Gibson, formerly vice president of asset servicing risk and control with Morgan Stanley, has joined TML as financial controller.
During his 10 years with MS he held a number of roles; including that of senior manager in both the Global Tax Utility and Financial Controller areas of the business.
A graduate of Glasgow Caledonian University and a fully CIMA qualified accountant, he spent time with the Student Loans Company and Land Registry of Scotland before joining Morgan Stanley in 2006.
Trevor Pothecary, CEO and founder of The Mortgage Lender, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Peter to the team. With such diverse experience of financial services, built over a long career, he brings the skills and gravitas to a role which is fundamental to our growth ambitions.”
Meanwhile, TML also announced the recruitment from Clydesdale Bank of Gillian McAllister as product and marketing manager.
Ms McAllister spent almost 6 years as a marketing manager at the Scottish bank, where she was responsible for a number of products, including mortgages.
Prior to the Clydesdale, she held roles at Royal London, Merrill Lynch and HBOS.
Mr Pothecary added: “Gillian joins us from an award-winning Scottish lender with a significant exposure to the intermediary market, and with that brings with her the knowledge and skills to help us deliver our strategy and targets.
“The quality of people we have been able to bring in to the team is a testament to the depth and strength of the financial services industry in Glasgow, and our shared vision for the successful future of The Mortgage Lender.”
