Aberdein Considine has appointed Darren Polson as head of mortgage operations.
Mr Polson brings almost 20 years’ experience in financial services and has joined the firm from Mortgage Advice Bureau where he was head of training and performance in Scotland. He will work alongside Greig Brown who has been promoted to the newly created role of mortgage director.
Mr Polson will be based at Aberdein Considine’s Edinburgh flagship office in Multrees Walk and he will be responsible for all day to day mortgage operations as well as the firm’s independent mortgage advisers across 19 offices.
He is CEMAP qualified and has developed an extensive knowledge of the mortgage and protection market during his career, which has included leadership roles with both Bank of Scotland and HSBC, covering a number of areas including wealth management and compliance.
Mr Brown said: “Darren has a proven track record in the mortgage industry and it’s great to be able to attract someone of his calibre.
“We’re always looking to improve the service we provide and Darren’s experience and knowledge of the mortgage market will ensure that our clients continue to receive the support they need, when they need it.”
Mr Polson added: “For most people, buying a new home involves getting a mortgage which is a huge commitment and can be a difficult area to navigate. Obtaining the best independent advice is crucial, and I’m determined to make sure we make the whole process as easy and straightforward as possible for all of our clients.”
