Bradford & Bingley has appointed Andy Wiggans as director of mortgage products.
He joins from HBOS where he was previously head of savings products and head of mortgage products.
His new role encompasses the Bradford & Bingley and Mortgage Express brands and covers mortgage product development, product management and strategic marketing.
He will report to group director of lending Chris Gillespie. His appointment follows the retirement of managing director Tim Dawson earlier this year.
Wiggans says: The intermediary market is a strong and competitive one and we will continue to compete through our Mortgage Express brand offering innovation and a clear understanding of brokers and their customers needs. I hope to meet many of our key brokers over the coming months.
We will be focusing on the buy to let, lifetime and self-cert markets but will also look for under-served areas ignored or avoided by other lenders.
