Gatehouse Bank has promoted Sim Gill to the newly-created role of Intermediary National Key Account Manager. In his new role, Sim will lead the coordination of operations with a number of key broker partners.
Sim joined Gatehouse in October 2017, starting as a Business Development Manager in the Residential Property Finance department. Prior to joining the Bank, he was Islamic Finance Officer at Ahli United Bank.
As Gatehouse has increased its home finance services, Sim has played a key role in developing its engagement with large business introducers.
Reporting to Faisal Dar, Head of Specialist Home Finance, Sim will work closely with the Bank’s Business Development Managers as they continue to establish and strengthen relationships with members of mortgage clubs and networks.
The appointment follows increased demand for Gatehouse Bank’s products and services. The bank has continued to expand its range, launching a Commercial Property Finance proposition in November 2018 and entering the homebuyer market in December with the launch of its first Home Purchase Plan product, a Shariah-compliant alternative to a conventional mortgage.
Faisal Dar, Head of Specialist Home Finance, said:
“Providing a high level service to a growing number of intermediaries is a key element of our growth strategy, and I am delighted that Sim will be driving this forward.
“Sim’s appointment demonstrates Gatehouse’s ambitious plans for further growth and also highlights the opportunities for employees to progress within the bank as it continues to grow.”
Sim Gill, Intermediary National Key Account Manager, said:
“As awareness of our products increases, the appetite among brokers to introduce business to the bank is growing. This is all happening in step with a growing range of products and an increasing public and business profile, so I’m delighted to be given a chance to lead how we work with our growing number of intermediary partners.”
