Fintech firm, Paylink Solutions, has hired Andrew Alder as Director of Developments and Partnerships as they increase their client base across the collections, debt advice and lending markets - and support the UK’s financial services sector to meet increased consumer and regulatory demand.
Andrew has more than 15 years’ experience of working across the debt advice, collections and lending industries. He joins Paylink from national debt advice provider, PayPlan, where he was instrumental in developing its creditor support proposition on funding - and integrating PayPlan’s service into creditors’ contact centres and digital journeys.
Prior to this Alder held senior roles at UK Asset Resolution Limited (UKAR) and Northern Rock where he was responsible for secured and unsecured lending portfolios, asset management and implementing new debt management strategies respectively.
Andrew said: “During a time of huge economic uncertainty from both business and consumer perspectives, Paylink has developed digital solutions to allow lenders to support their customers who have fallen into financial difficulty, but also provide early intervention solutions to reduce consumers indebtedness by ensuring a responsible lending journey for those who require new financial products.
“It’s a very exciting time to join this growing firm, which is making huge waves across the UK’s fintech sector.”
Susan Rann, CEO of Paylink Solutions, said: “Andrew’s appointment will strengthen Paylink’s service by enhancing our new and existing client relationships. His deep understanding of the collections and lending markets will also assist with the delivery of our vision and ambitious growth targets.”
