“Now is the time to bring our proposition to more partners and their customers.”
The broker-focused fintech says its plans for 2022 are driven by growth in key partnerships over the next 12 months.
A former head of the partnerships group at Moneysupermarket, Sasha Evans takes over as head of the firm’s partnerships team and sits on the board of directors. Laura Patterson also joins the team as Senior Partnerships Manager.
Paul McGerrigan, CEO of Loan.co.uk, said: “This is an exceptionally exciting and crucial time for us. We delivered a strong performance in the first half of 2021, before experiencing very strong growth in H2, helped significantly by the appointment of our new Chief Commercial Officer, Dean Burley, who joined us after 15 years in senior roles at Ageas.
“Now is the time to present our proposition to more partners and their customers. It’s critical that we put the right pieces in place now to continue to grow, and by adding someone with Dean’s experience and gravitas to the board, we’ve taken a big step in that direction.
“Sasha is a highly experienced business executive and has an outstanding track record in strategic business development. Having someone of Sasha’s caliber and reach will keep us focused on growth and she is excited to delve into the mortgage market as part of her role.
“Laura has deep and extensive experience in the mortgage and insurance industries, having held leadership roles at Mojo Mortgages, Leek United Building Society and Ageas. She understands how distribution works in the specialized mortgage market and has a central role to play in our growth. »
