Job title: Head of Specialist Underwriting
Date joined: March 2008
Role: Mike works for both Mortgages for Business and Keystone Property Finance to ensure that all propositions are placed with the most appropriate lender.
Experience: Mike studied engineering and technology at college, so joining Crusader Insurance as his first proper job wasn't the most logical step. However, over the next 10 years he progressed through the company to become a claims supervisor specialising in life assurance and group health. He then spent 17 years working for Mortgage Trust (part of Paragon Group) where he became a senior underwriter. In this role he gained invaluable experience in buy to let, portfolio lending and the credit function. It was whilst he was at Mortgage Trust that, in 1995, Mike met David Whittaker, managing director of Mortgages for Business. By 2008 the mortgage market had changed significantly and an opportunity arose to join Mortgages for Business. Since then Mike has headed up the mortgage technical Desk, maintained Mortgage Flow, our buy to let sourcing system and now heads up specialist underwriting.
