Lendhub have announced the appointment of Asim Shirwani as their new Chief Commercial Officer.

Lendhub have appointed Asim Shirwani to the newly created role of Chief Commercial Officer. Asim has over 15 years’ experience in financial services, most recently from Lendinvest where he was involved with the origination and execution of residential development and pre-construction bridging facilities. Previous to Lendinvest, Asim held various senior positions at Metro Bank, most recent being Head of Residential Investment Finance.

In his newly created role, Asim will be assisting with Lendhub’s extensive growth and product expansion plans.

Christopher Adamou, Managing Director commented “We are very excited to have Asim join the Lendhub team. He brings a wealth of experience that will be pivotal in achieving our future growth plans. Whilst 2020 has been filled with uncertainty, we have continued to hire talented and experienced individuals to strengthen our service and offering to our customers.”

Commenting on his appointment, Asim added “I am truly delighted to be joining Lendhub as the Chief Commercial Officer. It is a new position created to take the business into the next phase of its planned growth and I am very much looking forward to being a part of its success.

As we surf our way out of a lockdown and remote working, at least in the foreseeable future, becomes a norm it will be imperative for lenders to be able to adapt and alter the ways in which their products and services are delivered. Having spent the best part of the last decade in a challenger bank environment and more recently in specialist lending it is clear to me what intermediaries and borrowers crave is a common sense approach to lending supported by first class, tech driven customer service. Lendhub have an impressive product set with an agile decision-making process and possibly the best in class portal giving borrowers and brokers real time case updates and complete transparency.

Lendhub’s slogan of being a property lending business run by people who understand property couldn’t be closer to the truth so for me it was a no-brainer to join at what is an exciting time for the business to help Chris and the team build on their continuing success.”
