Negative Equity NI appoints John McMaster as Business Development Manager
Negative Equity NI, Northern Ireland’s leading property debt resolution firm, has announced the appointment of John McMaster as the company’s new Business Development Manager.
John will work closely with company directors Phil Davison and Tom Cardwell to help strengthen business relationships and promote the highly successful Negative Equity brand across Northern Ireland and beyond.
John has extensive experience within the financial industry with 36 years with Danske Bank. Previous roles as Branch and Business Manager covered all aspects of the Personal, Retail and Corporate relationships. John’s new role will see him use his extensive banking experience to promote Negative Equity NI as an outsource partner to finance, accounting and legal professional across the country.
Phil Davison, Managing Director of Negative Equity NI comments: “John’s appointment is yet another sign of us continuing to grow significantly as a company. We’ve made major investment in our people, processes and marketing to gain the trust and buy-in of the Northern Irish public. Now that we’re the dominant force in the direct to consumer market, we’re confident that we can also deliver for professional partners – companies who will rely on us to deliver the same high standard of service their clients have come to expect from them. We’re delighted to welcome John to the team and wish him every success.”
John McMaster added: “I’ve been lucky to have had a long and progressive career with the bank. When I heard about the opportunity with Negative Equity NI, I was intrigued.
“The service the company offers is truly innovative and is bridging the gap between customers and lenders left by the negative equity gap. There’s a huge need here in Northern Ireland and beyond to resolve these issues – and not just for the benefits of borrowers. The negative equity issues can affect every part of life – that affects other professionals who are dealing with their clients legal and accounting issues. We’re also going to focus on working with estate agents and IFAs whose clients need specialist help to escape the negative equity trap.”
Negative Equity NI provides an outsourcing service to professionals whose clients are facing negative equity issues. As the specialists and market leaders in this area, we can effectively deal with these issues and offer partners a referral fee.
The additional benefit, over and above what can become an additional revenue stream for a Negative Equity partner, is that it frees their clients up to move on with their business or lives that may be holding other things up – probate relating to a property in negative equity, for example, or financial issues holding up business growth.
