A founding member of Pink Home Loans, Copland held various sales and marketing roles before being appointed the chief executive officer.

Angus Stewart, chief executive of Property Master, said: “I am delighted to welcome David to the team.

“He brings with him a wealth of experience of both the property market and of mortgage finance.

“David’s role will be to complement that effort with the development of partnerships with organisations who can support us in bringing what we have to offer to even more landlords looking to find a better mortgage deal.”

Copland added: “I have followed Property Master’s development over the last few years, and I am excited at the prospect of now having a more hands-on role.

“Property Master have successfully made great strides in disrupting the market for buy-to-let mortgage finance which I know to be complex and challenging.

“The company’s use of technology is truly market leading and the savings they can make for individual landlords can be transformative. “
