Great news for Trussle! Today, the UK’s first online mortgage broker announces appointment of two senior hires to the executive board. Veteran banker, Simon Williams, and product technology executive, Supriya Uchill, have joined the company as it enters a major expansion phase.
The appointments come as Trussle reveals 3x year-on-year revenue growth and announces plans to develop new products to make mortgages fairer for consumers. Trussle was founded by Ishaan Malhi, a former city analyst who launched the company after struggling to navigate his own mortgage application. Having been left frustrated, out of pocket and ineligible for a mortgage, Malhi set up Trussle to fix the broken mortgage industry. Four years into the journey, Trussle - which secured £13.6m of investment led by Goldman Sachs PSI last year - has appointed Simon Williams, as its first Chairman. With more than 30 years of financial services experience, Williams spent nine years at Citigroup, heading up its International Retail Bank and more recently, serving as head of HSBC’s Wealth Management group until 2014.
