Masthaven has announced that three new senior members of staff will be joining its mortgage and savings divisions.
The new hires will focus on supporting the bank’s customer service and product range alongside its digital and emerging technologies research.
David Kennedy has joined Masthaven as lending operations director, while Mark Evans will join the bank in the next few months as product director.
The pair previously worked as director of operations and head of product management respectively at Shawbrook Bank.
Baris Aksoy has been appointed as data protection officer at Masthaven, having previously served as an information governance subject matter expert at the NHS.
The specialist bank has also announced that internally, Al Southall has been appointed as chief technology officer and Simon Furnell will be chief operating officer, with responsibilities for product development, the post-origination servicing of loans, operations and retail savings.
“As Masthaven continues to develop, it is critical that we maintain an unrelenting focus on what is key to achieving our plans,” said Jon Hall, managing director at Masthaven (pictured above).
“It is fantastic to welcome new experts to the Masthaven team and congratulate those who have moved internally as they help us to underpin the growth and direction of the business.
“These changes will ensure that we continue to move forwards in both the specialist lending and challenger bank space and enable our team to provide innovative products and services for both our broker partners and our customers.”
