Shawbrook appoints Phill Tyson to head residential lending credit team


Following on from the appointment of Jeremy Law as Managing Director, Residential Mortgages team last week Shawbrook Bank announces the appointment of Phill Tyson as Head of Credit for Residential Lending.

Maeve Ward who has been with Shawbrook since 2009 and who has played a key role in building their second charge business has taken the decision to pursue other career opportunities. Claire Rankin, who is currently Head of Networks, Residential Mortgages, will become interim Sales Director. An integral part of the Residential Mortgages senior team, Claire has worked closely with Maeve and will continue to provide its trademark specialised products via the broker channel.

Jeremy Law commented:

“Phill brings a great deal of knowledge and experience to our underwriting teams and I’m confident through his leadership Shawbrook will continue to be known for offering residential mortgage products that are built on common sense, consideration and thoughtful judgement.

“Maeve has been an integral part of Shawbrook for the last 9 years during which time she was instrumental in the success of the residential offering, and a key personality within the business working with the Banks’ pool of broker partners. I would like to thank Maeve for the important contribution she has made and wish her well for the future.

“Claire has extensive experience and first-hand knowledge of the Residential Mortgage market and I’m confident that she will continue to help provide the right solutions via the broker channel, balancing its regulatory responsibilities with the need to provide practical and thoughtful solutions to UK borrowers.”
