Lending Works, the UK’s leading embedded consumer finance provider, has further strengthened its team with eight key leadership hires to lead the company’s continued expansion.

Graham Dodds joins as Chief Product Officer, responsible for the financial aspects of Lending Works’ loan products and customer experience. He joins from TSB, where he was most recently Head of Loans, and with his responsibilities in this role providing extensive experience in credit risk management, loan pricing and customer experience.

Dodd’s appointment rounds out the executive committee at Lending Works. In addition to the founders, Dodds, COO Jonathan Kramer and CRO Ines Maia, LendingWorks boasts a strong senior leadership team with wide-ranging skills and experience.

Lending Works further added to its leadership team with Donna Quinn joining as Head of Compliance, Jomart Tleujan as Head of Strategic Finance, Andrew Long as Credit Risk Manager, Tommy Fennelly as Head of Data Science, Isaac Perez as Head of Infrastructure, Virginie Allaire as Head of FP&A, Adam Robery as Head of Pricing and Performance and Eduardo Narros as Principal Kotlin Engineer. These team members held leadership and senior operational roles at Lloyds Banking Group, TSB, NewDay, Wells Fargo, IBM and Thompson Reuters.

Lending Works resumed lending activity in early 2021 and strives for sustainable growth and long-term profitability.

Commenting on the new appointments, Nicholas Harding, Group Chief Executive Officer and founder of Lending Works, said: “Our experienced and ambitious team has much to be excited about for 2022 and beyond. We have strong foundations across our team, our embedded lending platform and our customer proposition. We look forward to growing lending volumes once again in the new year, and above all, providing a reliable and efficient service to our loan customers.”

Commenting on his appointment, Graham Dodds, Chief Product Officer of Lending Works, said: “I’ve joined Lending Works at such an interesting stage in its development as a business. The existing team achieved great things between launch in 2014 and now, and I will support the company’s next phase of development, where we will capitalise on our market leading proposition to scale up customer originations.”
