Foundation Home Loans announces senior promotions

Foundation Home Loans has promoted Grant Hendry (pictured above) to director of sales and Mark Whitear to director of commercial development.

In his new role, Grant will be fully responsible for the lender’s sales proposition and management of its national sales managers, regional account managers and internal BDMs.

Meanwhile, Mark will have responsibility for adviser sales support, marketing, adviser registration and management, and leading the lender’s internal customer relationship management team.

Both Grant and Mark joined the company in 2018, and have since held numerous roles and contributed to growing the lender’s distribution, developing sales and promoting brand awareness.

“I have been on an incredible journey over the last four years and am very proud to be working for a lender like Foundation Home Loans, especially now that I am fully responsible for the entire sales team who work so hard and care so much about advisers and their businesses,” said Grant.

“In a post-Covid world, it is imperative we adapt to the changing landscape of the intermediary sector, while continuing to meet adviser demands and providing exceptional service to them and their clients. 

“I am looking forward to the challenges that will come with this new role and continuing to develop our sales proposition in the wider market.”

Mark added: “At Foundation Home Loans, we continue to expand our proposition and put in place the structures required to deliver for advisers and their clients across a growing range of product sectors. 

“Good communication is therefore vital, and a big part of my role is being that link between Foundation Home Loans — particularly the sales team — and the advisers who place business with us. 

“I’m looking forward to meeting those challenges in this new role and ensuring Foundation is leading the way in terms of our adviser relationships and the way we thrive together.”  

George Gee, managing director for commercial at Foundation Home Loans, commented: “These promotions provide a structure designed to get the most out of everyone’s talents focused on our core proposition, and what we need to deliver to advisers and their clients going forward. 

“These are exciting times for Foundation Home Loans, as we seek to achieve our growing ambitions and targets in the mortgage market.”
