Jeff Knight (pictured) is set to leave Foundation Home Loans, this month after nearly four years with the intermediary-only specialist lender.

Knight, who is director of marketing at Foundation, joined the lender in January 2017 and built up the marketing function of the business, making it an award-winning lender in this area, and contributed to year-on-year growth for the lender.

He has worked in the mortgage industry for 23 years in a variety of senior internal and consultancy roles. Knight has said that he will be taking some time out before deciding on his next role.

Hans Geberbauer, chief executive of Foundation Home Loans, said: “Everyone at Foundation is sad to see Jeff leave the business and he goes with our best wishes for his future career.

“Jeff has been absolutely central to what we have achieved at Foundation over the past three and a half years, and he certainly leaves us in a far stronger position than when he joined.”

Knight added: “When I joined Foundation in 2017, I had a vision for what I wanted to achieve and goals that I wanted to reach with the business.

“Looking at what we have done, our growth, the record business volumes, and the success of our marketing activity, I think that vision has been achieved.

“The vision of a strategic approach to marketing has been delivered. It therefore makes sense to move on to a new challenge and I would like to thank everyone who has supported me personally and Foundation during the last few years, and to wish all the team here the very best for the future.”
