Richard Coulson’s role expands to incorporate Pink PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 17 August 2015

Richard Coulson’s role as business development director of First Complete has been expanded to Pink Network, this will ensure a joined up approach to each aspect of LSL’s network businesses as they target the next phase of growth.

Richard Coulson has performed this role successfully for First Complete for many years, and has over 30 years’ experience in the intermediary market during which time he has achieved outstanding results in recruiting, growing and developing businesses. The individual brands remain unchanged, each will continue to have their own regional director teams and will benefit from Richard’s substantial experience and expertise.

For several years the three brands under LSL Financial Services: Pink, First Complete and TMA have had a number of centralised support functions.  Earlier this year Toni Smith’s role was also widened to sales operations director across both networks, looking after marketing and communications plus lender and provider propositions. 

David Copland will continue to lead the development and growth strategy for TMA. David has a strong track record of building DA distribution businesses and a wealth of experience in the intermediary mortgage market.

Jon Round, LSL Group Financial Services Director, says: “Each of our businesses has its own competitive proposition, growth strategy and identity. Some support functions are delivered by a single team that looks after all our FS businesses, other functions are delivered by brand-specific teams that look after firms within either Pink, First Complete or TMA. Each business benefits from the overall strength, expertise and buying power of LSL’s vast financial services business. This approach enables each network to retain strong elements of individuality and identity, whilst benefiting from a co-ordinated, joined up management approach and the financial backing of a large plc owner.”
