The Mortgage Lender (TML) has today announced the appointment of Sara Palmer as Head of Distribution.

Sara’s appointment comes during significant growth at TML and hers is one of a number of exciting hires as the lender moves into its next growth phase, following its acquisition by Shawbrook Bank earlier this year.

Sara has spent the past 13 years at Santander where she has looked after key networks and distributors alongside managing and building key, strategic relationships.

Sara also has valuable experience in fintech, having been seconded to Mortgage Engine – a multi-DiP platform which connects lenders to distributors and intermediaries using API technology.

Sara joins TML in January 2022.

Sara Palmer, Head of Distribution at The Mortgage Lender, comments: 

“Joining TML at this stage of its growth journey, and at such an important time for specialist lending, is an opportunity I simply could not turn down.

The brand’s culture, people and leadership are also huge draws.

Real life lending is such an exciting mission and I look forward to playing a role in the next stage of TML’s growth, adding value to brokers and advisers.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Santander for Intermediaries and wish the team well for the future.”

Steve Griffiths, Sales Director at The Mortgage Lender, added: 

“Being able to attract talent of Sara’s calibre to our Senior Management Team  is testament to what TML has achieved over the past year.

Her wealth of expertise and experience will help drive the team onto the next level as we embark on ambitious plans for 2022.”
