Landbay, the specialist buy-to-let mortgage lender, has strengthened its sales team as Helen McKinney joins as Head of Sales for the South region. Additionally, Ian Hall and Rob Stanton have been promoted to Head of Sales roles for their respective regions in the North and the Midlands.

Helen is joining Landbay from OneSavings Bank, where she spent almost three years as a Senior Business Development Manager. Prior to this, Helen worked for Virgin Money where she was an Intermediary Relationship Manager. As Head of Sales for the South she will be heading up Landbay’s proposition in London and the South, with a focus on new business opportunities and further growth of the team. Helen will be responsible for building a strong presence in the region and enhancing relationships with Regional Account and Business Development Managers.

Ian and Rob’s promotions are a response to their commitment to the company and will enable them to continue to build their teams and enhance Landbay’s presence in their respective regions. Rob joined Landbay in 2018 from Paragon, where he spent 15 years as a senior underwriter and a regional manager working with intermediaries in the Midlands. Ian too joined Landbay from Paragon, where he spent five years as a Regional Manager; he has over 12 years of industry experience with specific experience of working on complex buy-to-let cases.

These appointments further cement Landbay’s commitment to achieving ambitious growth in 2019 with a focus on sales, underwriting, and technology.

“Rob and Ian’s progress to Head of Sales roles is richly deserved, and we are thrilled to welcome Helen to the team. Her thorough knowledge and experience of the industry will play a crucial role in growing our footprint in London and the South.”
