Platform Home Loans appoints finance and planning director

Non-conforming mortgage lender Platform Home Loans has appointed Andrew Davidson to the new role of finance and planning director.

Davidson joins Platform after being at Merrill Lynch Investment Managers for ten years. In his final role there, as director and head of institutional operations, he managed 140 staff and was responsible for the international equity business, ensuring best practice for client service and increasing productivity.

Davidson is ACA qualified, having trained with Price Waterhouse, and has 14 years experience in finance, operations and accountancy.

David Tweedy, managing director of Platform Home Loans, says: “The merger with Verso last year, to form a one-stop mortgage business, presented us with many new challenges and it has been necessary to expand our management team to help us tackle these and strengthen the business further.

“We have ambitious plans for the future and Andrew has the right qualities to help us to make our vision a reality. We look forward to him joining the team.”
