Property services group Connells has appointed Ross Bowen as its new group mortgage services director.
Ross will combine his new role, which he will take up on January 1, with his existing position as managing director for Connells Survey & Valuation.
He previously headed the group’s mortgage business in summer 2007.
Former Connells mortgage head Charles Haresnape left the group to become Aldermore’s chief executive of residential mortgages last week.
Ross says: “I am delighted to be taking back the mortgage services business at such an exciting time. Connells has invested heavily in this area of the business in 2010, and this is set to continue with the recruitment of 100 new mortgage service consultants in our estate agency branch network over the coming months.”
Group chief executive David Livesey says: “Ross has a great deal of experience and will be responsible for implementing a new stage of growth in Connells Mortgage Services.”
