Masthaven promotes Rob Barnard to director of intermediaries

Masthaven has promoted Rob Barnard (pictured above) to the newly created role of director of intermediaries.

Rob joined the specialist bank in September 2018 as sales director with responsibility for the sales team and he also handled Masthaven’s first and second charge residential and BTL mortgage offerings.

In his new role, Rob will be responsible for the bank’s sales division — alongside Richard Deacon, sales director for short-term lending — and oversee the team responsible for all intermediary sales.

Prior to joining Masthaven, Rob served as sales director at Pepper Money and head of business development at Aldermore.

Rob said: “Masthaven has a great reputation in the short-term space and strategically it makes perfect sense for us to bring our long- and short-term lending offerings closer together as a single sales team.

“Many of our intermediary partners are interested in diversifying their businesses into the short-term lending market, so it’s a strategic growth area for us.” 

Jon Hall, CCO and deputy CEO at Masthaven, added: “Rob shares our vision for the future of Masthaven and Rob and Richard, working together across our sales function for all types of lending, will strengthen the Masthaven offering in the marketplace.”
