“This is a very exciting period at Wesleyan Bank, and I'm joining a team with the ambition and ability to be a major player in the alternative finance space,” said Simon.
“I'm looking forward to leveraging the significant potential we have in our existing segments, as well as targeting additional revenue streams to drive market share and growth.”
Simon will report to Steve Deutsch, chief executive at Wesleyan Bank.
