PosSol mortgage boss Andy Bell leaves following Intrinsic deal

Positive Solutions mortgage and general insurance manager Andy Bell is leaving the firm following its acquisition by Intrinsic.

Bell joined the network in August 2011 and led the establishment of its L&G mortgage club offering.

Bell, who leaves PosSol today, will be replaced by Intrinsic mortgage sales director Emma Hollingworth.

In a note to partners, PosSol chief executive Peter Coleman says: “Whilst it is always disappointing when someone of Andy’s calibre leaves Positive Solutions, I would like to thank him for his dedication and hard work during his time with us, which has seen him establish our L&G mortgage club offering and our very popular LifeQuote relationship.

“Following the integration with Intrinsic, our mortgage and general insurance offering will now be headed up by Emma Hollingworth, mortgage sales director, Intrinsic Financial Services, who you will hear from soon.”

There is no reason why 70 per […]
