Two experienced mortgage advisers have joined George Square Financial Management’s Nottingham city centre office team.
In line with the firm’s corporate expansion plans, Phil Browne and Alex Barrett join as Mortgage Protection Advisers to meet growing demand for impartial mortgage advice and specialist lending in the region.
With 35 years’ experience in the financial services industry, Phil Browne has specialised in providing professional mortgage services for several firms in London and Brisbane for the last 20 years. Nottingham born and raised, he returns to the region to lay roots at a well-established local business and is looking forward to using his knowledge of the area in his new role.
“The team at George Square work hard to establish long-lasting relationships with each and every client they work with and build mutual trust and respect. This is something that I feel passionately about too,” says Phil. “I am thrilled to be joining the team and feel eager to putting my wealth of expertise in the increasingly diverse mortgage market to good use when advising clients.”
Alex Barrett also joins the team as a Mortgage and Protection Adviser. CeMap qualified and with several years’ experience under his belt within the financial services sector, Alex will be responsible for providing high quality mortgage and protection advice and support to George Square’s roster of clients. He joins the firm from a high-street estate agency, where he worked as a Mortgage Consultant.
Alex said: “I was attracted to George Square for the career progression and development opportunities that the company actively seeks for its employees, and the chance to learn and grow alongside its highly skilled, professional, and friendly team.
“Through focussing on the specialist lending market and providing support to borrowers who are likely to face more of a challenge in securing a mortgage, I can’t wait to hit the ground running and make an impact at the firm.”
George Goward, Managing Director of George Square Financial Management, added: “At George Square, we have access to the whole of the mortgage market, meaning our advisers can source the most suitable deals for clients without being restricted to certain mortgage lenders.
“Phil and Alex’s appointments reflect a substantial increase in demand for our independent, specialist mortgage advice from clients in Nottingham and across the East Midlands. We are delighted to welcome them both to the George Square team as we embark on a period of significant growth and development.”
