Mawdsley back in industry with top job at Omnii

Omnii Solutions has appointed John Mawdsley, former managing director of The Mortgage Partner-ship as chief executive officer.

Mawdsley sold his stake in The Mortgage Partnership in September 2008 and left the industry to pursue other business ventures. He also relinquished his role as spokesman for the Association of Mortgage Packagers and Distributors.

Mawdsley started his career in building societies in the 1970s and moved to centralised lending in the 1980s, being part of the team that launched HMC in High Wycombe.

Mawdsley says: “The team at Omnii has built a proposition that is ideally suited to meet the challenges of today’s market. I am looking forward to this new and exciting opportunity.”
