Key Retirement founding director Dean Mirfin has been given the newly-created role of technical director.
Mirfin will provide technical oversight across Key’s core business areas of equity release, retirement income, secured lending and wills and lasting powers of attorney.
The firm says it has created the role because of the “wider reaching options and flexibility delivered by the pensions freedoms”.
Mirfin says: “Pension freedoms have created massive opportunities for retirement savers but people need guiding through the improved options available, needing a wider perspective which must also include the home as well as effective estate planning.”
Key’s group chief executive Colin Taylor says: “With over 25 years’ experience as a mortgage, equity release and retirement expert, Dean’s new role is central to the next stage in the growth story at Key where technical knowledge and wider reaching advice will play a major role.”
