OSB Group appoints business development manager


Joe Baxter

Specialist lender OSB Group has promoted Joe Baxter to customer-facing Business Development Manager (BDM), covering the South Coast to South Wales, including Southampton, Bristol, Bath and Cardiff.

Joe, who has been with the Group since 2019, joins the highly experienced network of field-based BDMs, supporting brokers and their clients with financial solutions from Precise Mortgages and Kent Reliance for Intermediaries.

He progresses into this position from his former role as an office-based BDM, covering OSB Group’s largest patch (North East England, Scotland, Devon and Cornwall), where his work earned him the British Mortgage Award for Best Telephony Manager 2023.

Prior to that, Joe spent 18 months in OSB Group’s Broker Liaison Team, building up his expertise in the specialist market.

James Forth, Head of Sales, Precise Mortgages and Kent Reliance for Intermediaries, commented:

“I’m delighted that Joe has joined our field-based BDM team. The expertise he brings from his role as one of our office-based BDMs, combined with his can-do attitude, will be a huge asset to the team and the brokers they support.

His close knowledge of internal processes will also be invaluable.

At OSB Group we are keenly focused on nurturing the people who work with us, developing their knowledge and skills through training and mentoring, and creating opportunities for them to grow into more challenging roles.

I’m very pleased that Joe has chosen to continue on his career path with us.”

Joe Baxter, BDM, Precise Mortgages and Kent Reliance for Intermediaries, said:

“I feel I’ve come a long way in a short space of time and have to thank my colleagues for their support and encouragement.

I learnt a great deal from working hand in hand with our field-based BDMs in my last role, and can’t wait to get out there and meet my broker clients.”
