L&C Mortgages names new chief operating officer – Mortgage Finance Gazette
Harrington joined L&C as an adviser in 2003 and has worked in a number of roles during his tenure.
Most recently, he worked as L&C’s advice director.
In his new role, Harrington will oversee the advice and operations teams at L&C. He will also firm and implement L&C’s strategy as part of the senior leadership team.
L&C has also hired Nicola Wildman and Sue Brown.
Wildman joins as chair of Risk to work closely with the compliance and risk teams across the business and as a non-executive director on the board.
She has experience in financial services at a senior level, including 19 years in various roles for the regulator.
Meanwhile, Brown joins the L&C board as a non-executive director.
She brings with her a wealth of experience with more than 30 years in legal services, operating within the transactional and remortgage market.
L&C chief executive Alan Young comments: “After a successful year in 2022, during which I’m proud to say that L&C helped more than 70,000 customers apply for over £15bn of mortgage lending, we’re already very much planning ahead for this year and beyond.”
“I’m therefore pleased to announce Mark’s appointment as our COO. Mark knows L&C inside out and has proven over the last twenty years what an invaluable asset he is. I know he will play a key part in growing the L&C business and putting in place the exciting plans we have for the future.”
I’m also delighted to welcome Sue and Nicola to the L&C team, adding further strength with their vast array of experience that will no doubt be crucial in helping us achieve our ambitions.”
