Mark Stephens has returned to CrowdProperty as a non-executive director.
Stephens (pictured) previously was a founding partner for challenger bank Aldermore and chief executive of Harrods Bank and has now been appointed to the board of CrowdProperty.
He worked for CrowdProperty for around six months during 2016 in a non-executive role.
Stephens brings more than 40 years of experience in banking and finance and currently holds the role of senior independent non-executive director at Distribution Finance Capital Holdings.
From 2018 to 2020, he was chief executive of Allica Bank, which aims to reinvent traditional banking for businesses through a network of local bankers.
He oversaw the sale of Harrods Bank to Tandem in 2018 and prior to this spent seven years with Aldermore.
“It’s an exciting time to be joining the team, given the numerous milestones and accolades achieved against a difficult economic backdrop over the last 12 months,” Stephens said.
“The fundamental property expertise at the core of the business, track record and technology underpinning have enabled CrowdProperty to develop a clear and strong proposition, achieving strategic advantages in the sector and the ability to scale. I very much look forward to being part of the next stage of growth.”
His appointment follows the recruitment of John Mould, former chief executive of ThinCats, to the CrowdProperty board as a non-executive director in January.
