A warm welcome to Helen Thistlethwaite

We are thrilled to announce Helen Thistlethwaite has joined the Society as our new Business Development Officer
Helen will be working in our Mortgages team and will have responsibility for existing key mortgage intermediary partners and developing new relationships with brokers across the UK.
She has worked in financial services for over 30 years in a variety of roles including her own mortgage and protection company. Most recently she was working with Countrywide and is perfectly placed to understand what brokers want from their lender partners.

Penrith Building Society Chief Executive Tim Bowen says: ““Helen stood out as being a great fit with the Society – both in terms of her experience but also her positive and professional attitude. Her background will be invaluable as we look to nurture and grow intermediary relationships. I have every confidence she will continue to delight brokers with our excellent range of products and common-sense approach to manual underwriting.”

In her spare time Helen enjoys walking and has recently challenged herself to walk all 214 Wainwrights. Her passion is her family and foreign travel, especially Asia.
