Rob Barnard (pictured) is set to return to Pepper Money in the new role of director of intermediary relationships.

Barnard had previously joined Pepper Money as sales director in 2016, before joining Masthaven Bank in 2018.

Prior to this, he worked at Aldermore Bank for more than six years, where he was head of intermediary distribution. He returns to Pepper at the beginning of July.

He will join Pepper’s expanding sales team tasked with helping the specialist lender nurture and develop its relationships with key broker and distribution partners. 

Pepper Money offers a full range of specialist residential and buy-to-let, first and second charge mortgage products to customers whose requirements may be underserved by traditional high street banks and building societies. 

The specialist lender uses financial inclusion as its guiding principle, providing affordable homeloans to a wide group of customers, including those who have experienced credit problems, are self-employed, work as contractors, earn variable income or simply because their circumstances require a more considered approach.

Barnard said: “I’m so delighted to be returning to Pepper Money in this new role. As a lender, Pepper has gone from strength to strength in recent years, broadening its proposition to work with more brokers in helping more customers.

“There’s a very exciting future ahead and I’m looking forward to working together with our key intermediary relationships to ensure Pepper continues to grow its lending and help more people to succeed.”

Paul Adams, sales director at Pepper Money, added: “I’m very happy to welcome Rob back to Pepper Money.

“His energy and enthusiasm are unrivalled, and he will be a huge asset to our business as we look to further deepen our relationships with intermediaries and continue to grow our lending.”
