Nigel Boothroyd, former HSBC Corporate Banking head, has been appointed as a Non-Executive Director by Lendy, one of Europe’s leading peer-to-peer secured property platforms.
Nigel joins after spending 38 years at HSBC Group, the global financial services group. His last position at HSBC was Regional Head of Lending & Transaction Management, Europe. He was previously National Head of Corporate Banking for HSBC Bank Canada, and Head of Corporate Banking, Home and Eastern Counties. Nigel will chair Lendy’s risk committee.
He currently holds a Non-Executive role at challenger bank Redwood Bank where he is Chair of their Risk Committee. Nigel is also a Non-Executive Director at Reliance Bank where he is Chair of the Credit Committee, and is a Trustee Director at the Community Savings Bank Association (CSBA).
Liam Brooke, CEO of Lendy, says: “Lendy is delighted to announce the appointment of Nigel Boothroyd as a Non-Executive Director.
“Nigel brings with him an outstanding level of experience in financial services having spent nearly 40 years at HSBC Group.
“As Lendy matures into one of Europe’s largest P2P platforms, its approach to risk is evolving and improving all the time. Part of that is independent oversight of how the businesses operates, and Nigel has decades of experience that he can bring to bear on advising our executive team.
“Appointing a Non-Executive Director of Nigel’s calibre is a sign that risk management is at the top of Lendy’s boardroom agenda.”
Lendy appointed Kieran O’Connor as Chief Financial Officer from Cortin Capital Partners last month.
