Industry stalwart Alan Cleary (pictured), group managing director for mortgages at One Savings Bank (OSB), is set to retire after 30 years in the mortgage market. 

Cleary was a co-founder of Charter Court Financial Services, which combined with OneSavings Bank in 2019.

Following the merger Cleary became the leader of the group’s mortgage brands covering Precise Mortgages, Kent Reliance for Intermediaries and InterBay Commercial.

The majority of Cleary’s time in the market has been focused on the intermediary space where he is arguably one of the most recognised faces in the sector.

Cleary said: “I have loved working in the intermediary mortgage market and have made many friends.

“I leave OSB Group with fond memories but I feel now is the time for me to spend my time outside of work with family and friends”.

Andy Golding, CEO of OSB GROUP PLC, added: “Since the point that OSB combined with CCFS, Alan has played a significant role in the successful integration of the two businesses and we’ll miss having him as part of the Group Executive Committee.

“He has all of our very best wishes for a happy and healthy retirement and ahead of the date that he leaves the group, we’ll be working hard to identify an appropriate successor”
