Jones and Quigley promoted to Senior Regional Account Managers at Foundation Home Loans

Foundation Home Loans, the intermediary-only specialist lender, has today announced the promotions of Keith Jones and Katie Quigley to Senior Regional Account Managers.

Keith covers the Midlands area for Foundation and has worked in the mortgage and financial services industry for 25 years. He joined the lender in December 2018 having previously worked for Lloyds, Together and The Northview Group.

Katie currently covers South Wales and the West and has worked in the financial industry for over 20 years, predominantly as a mortgage adviser. She joined Foundation in January 2020, having also worked as a Sales Manager for Bank of Ireland and a Key Account Manager for Virgin Money.

Reporting to Director of Sales, Grant Hendry, both Keith and Katie will have a range of new responsibilities including supporting the National Sales Managers, Paula Priest and Nathan Goodridge, supporting the other external Regional Account Managers, providing training and support to the Internal BDM team, supporting network events, taking an active role in both internal and external projects, while continuing to cover their existing regions.

These promotions follow Foundation’s recent announcement of two new Managing Directors within the business – George Gee is Managing Director (Commercial) and Kelly Pallister is now Managing Director (Operations) – and the promotion of Grant Hendry to Director of Sales and Mark Whitear to Director of Commercial Development.

Grant Hendry, Director of Sales at Foundation Home Loans, said: “As we continue to grow as a lender, it is imperative we have the right infrastructure in place, and this means recognising the talent we already have within the Regional Account Manager team who are able to step up and take on the additional responsibilities required, particularly in supporting the National Sales Managers, the other Regional Account Managers, and our internal BDMs.

“Over the two years I have spent managing both Keith and Katie, they have stood out in their roles and as leaders within the sales team, demonstrating their knowledge of the market and their desire to further their careers. It is essential that Foundation nurtures and develops the talent we have, ensuring we create the platform and the opportunity for progression, and we are therefore very pleased to be able to promote both Keith and Katie to these new roles where I fully expect them to thrive and excel as they have already done within the business.”
