Lendy continues its expansion with three new senior hires
LENDY has continued its expansion with three senior hires in newly-created positions.
Shane Lewin (pictured) has joined the P2P platform as compliance officer, Shaun Reynolds has been named development finance support manager, and Pamela Guillamon has been appointed international marketing manager.
Lewin previously worked at the commercial lending division of challenger bank OneSavings, and has more than 15 years’ worth of experience working within the financial services sector, while Reynolds has more than 30 years of experience in global banking, including commercial banking manager roles at HSBC and Clydesdale Bank.
Reynolds will be working on Lendy’s growing portfolio of property developments loans, collaborating with brokers, borrowers, and professional advisors to minimise investor risk.

Guillamon was formerly a regional sales and sponsorship manager at Orolia, part of positioning, navigation and tracking product company McMurdo Group. She will be responsible for managing the company’s corporate image and communications, as well as global events.
“This raft of new appointments will significantly help improve Lendy’s offering of products and services to our users,” said Liam Brooke, co-founder of Lendy.
“Shane’s knowledge of regulation and compliance combined with commercial lending will be central to the success of the company, its investors and borrowers going forward.
“Pam’s experience of events and sponsorship will be central in supporting Lendy’s growing public image, enhancing our customer relationships, and growing our social media offering.
“Shaun’s commercial banking know-how within big banks coupled with a detailed knowledge of the ins and outs of the FCA makes him a valuable addition to our team.
“We are continually looking to improve and develop our due diligence and compliance processes so that we can provide our investors with the best investment opportunities available, and these appointments will help us do just that.”

The new appointments represent the latest expansion news from the P2P platform, which has surpassed £320m in funds invested since its launch in 2012.
Earlier this year, the company began to move into the fixed income space for the first time, and confirmed to Peer2Peer Finance News last week that it had partnered with OFF3R and Welltrado to market its first property bond.
