Metro Bank has announced the appointment of Andy Piggott (pictured above) as its new director of lending products.
He will be responsible for overseeing mortgages and unsecured lending products at the bank and report directly to chief commercial officer Paul Riseborough.
Andy joins from TSB, where he served as head of personal current accounts before becoming head of cards.
Prior to that, he spent eight years at Lloyds Banking Group, with roles including head of PPI customer, product and insight.
Paul said: “I’m delighted to welcome Andy to the team at such an exciting time for us.
“As our mortgage business continues to go from strength to strength, I know Andy’s strong financial services experience – coupled with his ability to think outside the box – will enhance our offering still further.”
Andy added: “Joining an organisation that puts customers at its very heart – and isn’t afraid to disrupt the status quo – has always been high on my priority list.
“There is so much opportunity for the bank; I’m thrilled to be part of its growth story.”
