FutureBricks has hired experienced financial consultant Michael Williamson as a director.
The peer-to-peer property lending platform unveiled the new appointment on Monday. Williamson has held the chief financial officer (CFO) position and other leadership roles in FTSE 100 companies, private equity firms and mid-cap listed firms in a range of sectors and businesses.
He has also run his own strategy, operations and finance consultancy for the past three years, working with management, investors and advisers developing strategy, financing and performance.
Williamson has invested in large international and entrepreneur-led businesses, according to his LinkedIn page. He has worked for blue-chip organisations such as GSK, Sanofi and Oaktree, and with global advisory firms and large financial institutions.
His experience is international and multi sector, having completed IPOs, PE exits, M&A transactions and equity and debt fund raising.
“We’re very excited to have Michael Williamson on board as a director and look forward to embarking on this journey together,” said FutureBricks.
FutureBricks announced in December that it had hit the £1m lending milestone, in just one year since launching.
The London-based firm raised this total across seven projects.
The platform is aiming to grow its loanbook to £100m by 2023, by attracting a mix of retail and semi-institutional investors.
