Paragon bolsters BTL mortgage division

Paragon Bank has appointed Russell Anderson (pictured above) as customer retention and partnerships director.

In the newly created role, he will help improve the proposition and relationships that the specialist lender has with existing customers.

Russell joins Paragon from Bank of Ireland, where he most recently worked as head of sales and distribution.

Prior to this, he worked at Santander, Williams & Glyn, and Lloyds Bank.

Commenting on his appointment, Russell said: “Having worked in finance and mortgages for much of my career, I’ve been aware of Paragon for some time and its reputation within the industry was part of what attracted me to the position.

“Starting what is a new role is particularly exciting, as it provides the opportunity to be truly innovative and perhaps view things from a new or different perspective. 

“I’m looking forward to working with my new team to build on the bank’s success so far.”

Richard Rowntree, managing director for mortgages at Paragon Bank, added: “I’m extremely pleased to welcome Russell to Paragon; he takes on a new role that will further strengthen an already experienced and high performing team.

“Russell brings a wealth of experience to the role and has a proven track record with lots of tangible success in his career to date. 

“He is well known in the industry and will support our ambitions to grow, with a strong focus on our customers.”
