Ex-PTFS director Jonathan White joins Mortgage Brain


Former Personal Touch Financial Services sales and commercial director Jonathan White has joined Mortgage Brain as one its new lender development managers.

In his new role, White will be responsible for developing partnerships with lenders.

White left PTFS in September 2013 and has since worked as sales and marketing director for Sprint Enterprise Technology, a firm offering software to financial advisers.

Prior to PTFS, he was head of strategic relationships at 1st Exchange, which has since rebranded as Avelo and then Iress. Before that he worked at Sesame as member services director and then director of provider management.

He says: “I am absolutely thrilled to be joining Mortgage Brain. The business has a proud history of supporting both mainstream lenders and professional intermediaries with a wide range of clever technology solutions backed by a forward thinking ethos.

“Both MMR and the forthcoming changes to mortgage credit regulation, outlined as part of the European Mortgage Credit Directive, will further drive the need for more lenders to consider their strategies to ensure consumers are provided with clear information and are kept informed before, during and after the point-of-sale. Mortgage Brain is perfectly placed to help them with this and I’m looking forward to playing my part.”
