Kent Reliance increases support for intermediaries with key appointments


Kent Reliance, part of the specialist lender OneSavings Bank, has promoted Steve Seal to Head of Sales, with immediate effect after he successfully led and developed the national account distribution strategy in 2016.

In his new role, Steve will lead the entire Kent Reliance sales team ensuring consistency of service and professionalism for all of its distribution partners throughout the UK.  Steve boasts more than twenty years’ experience in the mortgage industry, including time at Chelsea Building Society, Barclays and Halifax and played a key part in launching Virgin Money’s intermediary proposition.

Adrian Moloney, Sales Director at OneSavings Bank said:

“I’m delighted that Steve has agreed to take on this challenging new role for 2017.  His experience and expertise provided our specialist mortgage partners with invaluable support last year and his new position will further enhance our future commitment to the intermediary channel to ensure our proposition is seamless across our UK network.”

Steve’s first action in his new role has been to recruit Dominic Sheahan to Kent Reliance as Senior Business Development Manager for the South West region.  Having previously worked as Business Development Manager with Metro Bank, Dominic brings over 16 years’ experience within the intermediary mortgage market, and has also worked for Bank of Scotland, winning Business Development Manager of the Year, and Commercial First.

Steve Seal, Head of Sales commented:

“Kent Reliance has a fantastic track record of building strong relationships with intermediaries and recruiting the right people who buy into our broker centric philosophy. Dominic’s appointment is key to our 2017 aspiration of being the UK’s leading specialist lender.”
