Brightstar Financial has unveiled a further strengthening of its senior team with two internal promotions, which it believes will allow it to smash through the £1 billion mark of specialist lending completions in 2017
From 1st January, Bradley Moore becomes Managing Director of Brightstar Financial while William Lloyd is now Operations Director.
Moore co-founded the business in 2011 alongside Chief Executive Officer Rob Jupp and Director Kit Thompson. Moore will also continue in his role running the second charge mortgage division and Bright Mortgage Services.
The business has grown substantially in the last six years as it has consistently worked to support mortgage brokers provide specialist deals for their clients.
“Bradley has been with the business from inception and has worked tirelessly hard with Kit and myself to make the business what it is today,” said Rob Jupp, Chief Executive at Brightstar.
“As well as continuing to run second charge mortgages and Bright Mortgages, he will assist me in running the overall business.
Lloyd has moved up to the position of Director where he will be formally responsible for the operations of the Brightstar Group.
Will started at Brightstar in January 2012 as an office administrator and has risen through the ranks.
“Will deserves this opportunity and shows any member of our Brightstar Family on what can be achieved with hard work, dedication and loyalty,” said Jupp.
The last year was an exciting period for the business with a number of significant moves into new business areas while strengthening existing relationships.
In 2016, we launched our revolutionary EasySource sourcing system to make life easier for our clients and to help customers get a mortgage deal they may otherwise have missed. EasySource was two years in the making after research amongst the intermediaries that use Brightstar revealed the extent of the difficulties in searching the market and comparing different product types.
In November, Brightstar has teamed up with DotBroker, part of The Financial Media Group, to provide Brightstar’s intermediaries with exclusive access to a wide range of unsecured loan products.
In July, Brightstar was named the Investors in People (IIP) Gold Employer of the Year, beating more than 300 companies from 29 countries across the globe. Brightstar won from the top 7% of all IIP certified businesses in the world. Brightstar is based in Billericay, Essex and is an FCA registered mortgage business.
