Intrinsic Mortgage Network Business Development director Lisa Barber says:

“I’m incredibly excited to be joining the largest mortgage network in the UK with such an exemplary reputation for adviser support and quality service.

“Working alongside Gemma, my new colleagues at Intrinsic, and our incredible network of mortgage and protection advisers across the UK,  we have ambitious plans to enhance the support we offer and capitalise on the remarkable opportunity to leverage Intrinsic’s existing scale and expertise in the mortgage and protection market.”

Intrinsic Mortgage Network Managing Director Gemma Harle adds:

“Lisa is a fantastic addition to my leadership team and adds a wealth of knowledge and experience to the business. She will provide Intrinsic mortgage and protection advisers with market leading support and help me shape our mortgage and protection strategy as we seek to grow the network.”
