I am excited to be starting my new underwriting role and I’m looking forward to making a positive contribution to my team and the company, having joined in March 2019. My first impressions of the company is that it appears to be professionally organised and forward thinking with a friendly atmosphere. I have almost 25 years’ experience in the industry, most recently as QA at Leeds Building Society. I have been involved in mortgage underwriting at LBS, FHL & YBS and spent 15 years with the Halifax in various roles. In my free time, I am actively involved as secretary of my local cricket club, where I also coach the under 9s and under 11s. At home, I enjoy spending time with my wife and son, although I can also be seen tending to my tomato and cucumber plants during the warmer months!
