The Money Centre appoints four directors

The Money Centre has announced the appointment of four new directors which took place at The Money Centres AGM on October 5. Lynsey Scrivener has been promoted to Marketing Director, Wayne Kilby to Operations Director, Dawn Bower to Business Development Director and Bronya Cluer to Finance Director.

Lynsey Scrivener, previously Head of Marketing and Public Relations, has been with The Money Centre since 2000. Joining from a local marketing agency, she has successfully developed and implemented an IT infrastructure, which supports over 200 users across more than 30 locations, in all six of The Money Centres branches as well as supporting consultants providing buy-to-let guidance from home.

On joining The Money Centre, Lynsey also introduced an online marketing campaign, linking over 300 internet referral partners to The Money Centres website and significantly increasing the number of enquiries generated online. Since the beginning of 2005, she has also invested in offline PR and marketing support, which has successfully promoted The Money Centres free 32 page buy-to-let guide and free seminars with thousands of people attending throughout the country.

Wayne Kilby has been promoted from Operations Manager after two years with The Money Centre. Wayne joined the company in 2003 from Mortgage Express and had previously worked for the TSB bank. Wayne was hired to manage the processing areas of the business, and was soon given the responsibilities of human resources and compliance as well. Dawn Bower has also been with The Money Centre since 2003 and has been promoted from Business Development Manager.

Following a similar career path to Wayne, Dawn joined The Money Centre from Mortgage Express where she had worked for five years. So impressed with The Money Centre, Dawn relocated from Hertfordshire for the chance to work with one of the UKs leading buy-to-let mortgage providers. As head of Business Development at The Money Centre, Dawn looks after The Money Centres lenders and rates. She is also in charge of producing and interpreting management information and driving forward initiatives such as commercial lending and setting up franchises.

Lastly, Bronya Cluer has joined The Money Centre as the first non-executive Financial Director of the company. Bronya started her financial career in a medium sized practice in Norwich in 1977, where she trained to become a fully qualified chartered accountant in 1982. Bronya has worked overseas in Bermuda for a big four audit firm, specialising in offshore insurance and banking, as well as a Bermudian insurance broker and captive management company where she occupied the role of Vice President.

In 1988, she returned to the UK and established her own audit practice in Norwich. Now working for Pacific Limited, the chartered accountancy practice providing The Money Centre with a full range of professional financial services, Bronya is delighted to be joining The Money Centre in her new role as Finance Director.

Mark Alexander, Managing Director of The Money Centre, comments on the four new additions to the board; I am delighted to welcome Lynsey Scrivener, Wayne Kilby, Dawn Bower and Bronya Cluer to the board of directors at The Money Centre. Lynsey, Wayne and Dawn have been loyal and invaluable members of the management team here at The Money Centre and their hard work is well rewarded with promotions to the board. Bronya has also been working with The Money Centre as our appointed accountant for years and we are delighted to welcome her formally into our team.

We have experienced tremendous growth at The Money Centre this year and in September we are delighted to announce record turnover again, processing 153.1m worth of buy-to-let mortgages. This is testament to the hard work of the team here. We aim to continue on this path of growth and expansion and I look forward to working alongside Lynsey, Dawn, Wayne and Bronya in the future to achieve this.
