xit2, the mortgage and property data exchange specialists, have appointed Ian Shaw as National Business Development Manager.
Shaw joins from Homeloan Management Limited, part of the Skipton Group, where he was an Account and Business Relationship Manager. Prior to that he worked for Kensington Mortgages as Divisional Sales Manager, and as a Business Development Manager at Bank of Ireland. He will report into MD Mark Blackwell.
Mark Blackwell, managing director of xit2, said: “Ian will be an invaluable addition to our team. His breadth of knowledge in the mortgage market is combined with his experience working for an outsource service provider. His understanding of our clients’ markets as well as his previous work interacting with lenders in a similar context will mean Ian will provide xit2 with a platform to grow its position in some key markets and develop in ones where clients’ needs take us.”
Shaw’s main objective is to manage the further expansion of xit2’s business throughout the UK.
Ian Shaw commented, “After a rigorous recruitment process I’m very happy to have got the job and we all have every confidence that xit2 is the right fit for me and vice-versa. I’m really looking forward to working with the rest of the team and getting to grips with xit2’s day-to-day workings and contributing to its longer term strategy.”
The appointment follows the successful transition of the xit2 office location from Oxford to its main UK base in Kent and a significant investment in its data security and hardware operations.
Mark Blackwell explained, “Our clients’ demands are rightly focused on risk management which suits us perfectly in valuations, asset management and mortgage fraud services. Ian’s experience will bolster our client support and growth plans significantly.”
