Fluent for Advisers has appointed David Paton as business development manager (BDM).
He will work alongside fellow BDM, Donna Johnson and Jeff Davidson, head of intermediaries.
Paton has been at the dedicated intermediary arm of second charge provider Fluent Money Group for five years, starting as a case manager and moving into the growing internal business development department two years ago, as business development officer based in Fluent’s Bolton head office.
He had previously been a mortgage broker for 12 years.
Davidson said: “This year we have been very successful in building more formal relationships with networks and clubs and David has been outstanding as part of our internal team helping to manage enquiries from our expanding broker network.
“It was therefore an easy choice to choose David to help me and Donna in our work in taking the Fluent message directly to DA and AR brokers across the country.”
Paton added: “I am delighted to have this opportunity to use my skills and experience in a face to face environment. As an ex broker myself, I have a great understanding of the issues facing advisers when working with customers.
“Second charge borrowing can really help provide a compelling alternative for capital raising clients and I am looking forward to showing brokers where it can be the appropriate choice.”
