Saffron hires Williams from Stonebridge Group


The Saffron Building Society has hired Lee Williams, former business development manager for the Stonebridge Group.

Williams will take on the role of Regional BDM for South, South West and South Wales with the company and has experience as a broker, selling mortgages to a lender, as well as in within the Stonebridge network.

This appointment is the latest investment under the company’s “Intermediar-ease” initiative, which aims to make it easier for brokers to work with the mutual.

The company made two appointments to the BDM team earlier this year and Williams will join with immediate effect.

Tony Hall, Head of Mortgage Sales at Saffron, said: “Lee is a great new addition to the team. He is a highly respected BDM in his own right, and his knowledge and experience will only enhance our offering to brokers.

“I’m always keen to add a diverse knowledge base to the team, and Lee’s recent experience working with various lenders gives him unique insight into the market – while also understanding the needs of brokers. With the current level business and the growing number of borrowers looking to remortgage or relocate, it is essential that we have a support team that brokers can count on.

Williams says: “It was an easy decision to join the Saffron Building Society as I wanted to work for a specialist lender where I could add value to brokers and businesses. Saffron has an exciting borrowing proposition to meet the needs of current and future homeowners, but it’s also the way they are committed to making borrowing easy with Saffron – as a broker – that drew me to this job.

The Business Development team is at the heart of creating value for brokers and working together to drive fantastic customer journeys and results. I’m excited to get out there and see advisors and businesses and discuss how the Saffron Building Society proposal can help your clients and businesses. I look forward to staying stuck and developing my existing relationships and of course developing new ones.
