Nigel joins the P2P platform after spending 38 years at HSBC Group, with his most recent position at the bank being regional head of lending and transaction management for Europe.
Prior to that, he was national head of corporate banking for HSBC Bank Canada and head of corporate banking for the Home and Eastern Counties.
Nigel will chair Lendy’s risk committee.
He currently holds a non-executive director role at Redwood Bank, where he is chair of the bank’s risk committee, is a non-executive director at Reliance Bank, where he is chair of the credit committee, and is also a trustee director at the Community Savings Bank Association (CSBA).
Liam Brooke, CEO at Lendy, said that it was delighted to announce the appointment of Nigel 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 also appointed Kieran O’Connor as CFO last month.
