Nationwide Building Society has announced the appointment of James Briffitt as regional sales manager for the south east. His appointment will take effect from July 11, 2012. He will report to Ian Andrew, managing director of Nationwide Group Intermediary Sales.
James returns to Nationwide after 18 months at L&G, where he was national sales manager on the general insurance side of the business. He was previously at Nationwide for three years, in the role of senior manager of corporate accounts. He has spent virtually all of his 25 year career in financial services, the majority being in intermediary lending.
Ian Andrew, managing director of Group Intermediary Sales at Nationwide, said: “It is superb to have James back on board, doing what he does best, focused on the lending market. He was an original member of the team that set up the Nationwide intermediary arm, so he is perfectly placed to take it to the next step.”
