The non-major lender has announced the appointment of a new head of third-party distribution.

Virgin Money has appointed Christian York as head of its third-party distribution team.

Mr York has over 14 years of experience in the financial services industry, including experience in mortgage aggregation and business development, and was most recently the third-party distribution state manager at Bankwest.

Virgin Money’s general manager of lending, cards and deposits, Johnny Lockwood, welcomed Mr York’s appointment, saying: “Virgin Money is a partnership-based business and one of our key priorities is forging strong relationships with mortgage brokers to deliver great outcomes for our customers.


“Christian will work with our national business development team to continue the rapid growth of our home loans business.

“Christian brings with him an extensive track record of performance, particularly in third-party distribution, and we are delighted to welcome him to the team.”

Mr York also commented, saying that he looks forward to helping further develop the lender’s broker proposition.

“Virgin Money’s unique value proposition has been embraced by customers and mortgage brokers alike,” the appointee said.

“We are strongly committed to the broker channel and I look forward to working with the Virgin Money team and with our partners to enhance and extend our proposition.”


Since its launch in 2016, Virgin Money has settled over $1.2 billion in home loans through its national network of over 4,300 mortgage brokers, in partnership with AFG, PLAN, FAST, Connective, Aussie and Choice.
