Project BankNorth has named four new senior appointments and submitted its first draft regulatory business plan.
Ewan Hutton, Andrea Dalton, Goi Ashmore and Martin Ellis have joined Project BankNorth after it called in the first tranche of its seed capital raise.
Ewan has joined as its new chief technology officer from Simpson Millar.
He previously served at HSBC and First Direct.
“I’m excited to be joining BankNorth at such a pivotal stage in its development to help shape the business,” said Ewan.
“I have a wide range of experience in global and domestic roles at the intersection of marketing, technology and innovation, and I look forward to bringing these skills and mindset to this innovative company.”
Andrea has been recruited as BankNorth’s programme director, Goi has been named treasurer, while Martin is the new head of financial planning and analysis.
Martin joins from Yorkshire Building Society, where he has spent the last three years as a financial planning and analytics manager.
Jonathan Thompson, founder and CEO at Project BankNorth (pictured above), added: “These new additions to the team bring a wealth of knowledge in their respective fields, and will have a positive impact in the future of Project BankNorth.
“All four appointments are extremely passionate about SMEs and the financial sector, and will help shape our unique, innovative offer.”
