Charlotte Grimshaw, Head of Mortgage Sales

Charlotte is no stranger to mutual lenders, having worked for two societies before joining the Ipswich in 2020. Charlotte is all about building relationships with clubs, networks and intermediaries, so she'll often be found with a diary packed full of appointments and raring to get back on the road. When she is not at work, Charlotte enjoys spending time in the kitchen cooking up a storm and is a big fan of eating and drinking.

Charlotte is: fun, hardworking and loves adventure.


Andrew Sadler, Senior Business Development Manager

Andrew has been with the Society since April 2015, and in the industry for over 20 years beforehand. There are few cases which Andrew hasn’t seen before and he loves being out and about visiting brokers, but most of all to help place a case where other lenders may say no. Andrew happily admits he is a geek at heart and is a keen Star Wars fan, with the 1977 original film the second film he ever saw in a cinema.

Andrew covers the following postcodes: PE / NR / IG / RM / EC / WC / E & 'The London 1's' (N1,W1,SE1,SW1,NW1).

Andrew is: hardworking, conscientious and loves hitting his targets.

Ian is a keen sportsman, and when he isn’t at work can usually be found pounding the pavements in training for his next race.

Ian covers the following postcodes:  IP / CM / CO / SS / ME / CB / SG / AL / HP

Ian is: positive, motivated and has a can-do approach.

Carly Scholes, Business Development Team Leader

Carly joined the team in October 2018 and is already part of the furniture.

Carly is: chatty, knowledgeable and committed


Gemma Reeve, Business Development Representative

Gemma joined the Society in April 2019. Although a newcomer to the world of mortgages, Gemma previously worked in insurance and so understands financial services and the importance of looking after her customers.
