LiveMore's team of experts has grown
LiveMore are introducing some new faces to the team! We are welcoming Austin Durant and Andrew McGill as we continue to accelerate our efforts to revitalise mortgages for the over 50s.
Andrew brings over 20 years of experience within financial services, with previous roles spanning mortgage advisory and senior customer service positions at Barclays, Alliance & Leicester and Principality Building Society. He will be instrumental in developing the customer journey and further establishing our newly-opened Bristol office, which we launched in December 2021.
“I’m excited to be joining LiveMore as they double down on truly challenging the way the market views over-50s customers. There’s an opportunity here to make a real difference to people’s lives whilst creating great business outcomes, and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
- Andrew McGill, Sales Operations Manager
In parallel, we have appointed Rob Abdur, previously Sales Account Manager, and Austin Durant, formerly a mortgage and equity release advisor at Key, to the newly-created role of Business Development Manager.
Rob’s promotion comes in recognition of his instrumental role in driving LiveMore’s growth, taking the business to over 2,000 firm registrations in 18 months. Both will use their extensive knowledge of the later-life market to support brokers and our sales team by streamlining processes and identifying new areas of opportunity for lenders and brokers.
The restructuring comes against the backdrop of recent FCA research that puts the estimated number of UK mortgage prisoners at close to 200,000 households, bringing demand for interest-only mortgages to an all-time high. We are responding by continuing to adapt our offering to serve more audiences, with new hires and role creations to enhance emphasis on real customer care and a seamless later-life lending experience.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Andrew and Austin as we continue to shake up the lending landscape on an increasingly bigger scale. We’re on a mission to deliver more choice and better outcomes for a woefully underserved market, and the growth and developments within our team are an exciting step along the way. I look forward to pressing ahead with our passionate and forward-thinking team to get later-life lending to where it should rightfully be.”
- Alison Pallett, Sales Managing Director
