Kelly Rule

SENIOR SPECIALIST ADVISOR
Kelly was catapulted into financial services some 17 years ago with her first job at Santander then working for a specialist mortgage packager working within their second charge team which came with a whole new set of challenges and rewards.

In 2005, a new lender specialising in commercial mortgages then opened called InterBay Commercial and the opportunity for a Mortgage Processer arose; Kelly started as a mortgage processor and went on to become an Underwriter. She had full autonomy over the decision making for certain cases within the bank and she learnt much about assessing the risk of property, applicants and the overall deal.

She went on to become a Business Development Manager covering the South West region managing all of the mortgage brokers within her area assisting them with their applications for Commercial, Buy to Let and Bridging applications. Kelly is now a Mummy to her beautiful 7 month old baby girl and a wife – so her home life is now very hectic and she is at a point in her life where a work life balance has never been more important.

Kim McGinley

DIRECTOR
Prior to setting VIBE up in early 2018, Kim had spent the previous 12 years working for specialist banks in the Commercial Mortgage industry working closely with a closed panel of mortgage brokers/introducers and with underwriting her own cases at the outset, she would oversee each case throughout the entire process through to completion.

This undoubtedly gave Kim the best oversight as to what challenges a lender faces and she saw a real opportunity to set up as a broker herself to utilise her skills and attributes gained throughout her career to really make a difference to her clients… and so VIBE was launched!

Kim is a (very) busy mum of 2 children and when she’s not working, she absolutely loves spending quality time with her family whilst trying to squeeze a run in here and there!
