Distributor names new head of second charge mortgages
Brightstar has appointed a new head of second charge mortgages and unsecured finance.
Darren Perry (pictured above) has been promoted to lead the specialist distributor’s second charge team as it continues its transformative year.
The announcement comes as Brightstar revealed its new heads of commercial and buy-to-let finance.
Jeff List has been promoted to head up Brightstar’s buy-to-let team, while Paul Debney will lead its commercial finance operation.
Brightstar now has five department heads:
• Darren Perry – head of second charge mortgages and unsecured loans
• Paul Debney – head of commercial finance
• Jeff List – head of buy-to-let
• Gina Blagden – head of residential mortgages
• Kit Thompson – director of short-term lending.
“It’s always great to be able to promote internally and my new divisional heads have shown they have the expertise, desire and willingness to help me in my quest to drive Brightstar on to even greater things in the second half of the year and beyond” said Bradley Moore, managing director of Brightstar.
Darren joined Brightstar with 12 years of experience in the financial services industry.
He has previously worked for London Scottish Broking, The Ideal Loan Company, Barclays, Spicerhaart Financial Services and Easy Loans.
Darren’s appointment as second charge head comes after Gina Blagden was moved up to head of residential mortgages, while William Lloyd was appointed operations director earlier this year.
