Legal & General Mortgage Club has appointed Clare Beardmore as head of broker and propositions as Craig Hall leaves the firm.

Beardmore moves to the new position from head of transformation and operations.

She will be responsible for leading the team to manage and develop relationships with, and ensuring propositions for, the club’s partners and member firms.

Hall departs the firm after 15 years to join LSL Property Services as director, new home financial services.

L&G Mortgage Club’s new-build proposition will now move to Danny Belton, the club’s head of lender relationships.

Kevin Roberts, director of mortgage club at Legal & General, said: “With her passion for mortgages and making a difference to advisers and consumers alike, Clare is the ideal choice to lead and build on the great work of our adviser facing team in supporting and raising the profile of mortgage advice while ensuring advisers have access to information and tools to make their lives easier to support their business growth.

“With Clare now leading on our broker relationships and proposition, our hugely successful New Build proposition will move to Danny Belton who is excited to develop this further for both our lender and broker partners.

“I would also like to take this opportunity on behalf of the mortgage club team and myself, to express our sincere thanks to Craig Hall for the huge contribution he has made to the development and success of the L&G Mortgage Club over the last few years. We wish him all the very best in his next role.”

Beardmore added: “The last 18 months have given me a deep understanding of digital transformation and the benefits it can bring to advisers’ businesses, perfectly complementing my previous mortgage and relationship management experience.

“I am very much looking forward to building on this knowledge and continuing to work closely with our advisers to make a difference for all our members.”
