Pink appoints director of finance

Pink Home Loans has promoted Lisa Hurley from associate director to be its director of finance.

Hurley’s role has been expanded to incorporate responsibility for commercial relationships with many of Pink’s suppliers and to oversee BDS’ finances. She joined Pink in 2004 as financial controller.

Nigel Dickens, Pink’s former management accountant, is following in Hurley’s footsteps and has now assumed the position of financial controller.

A number of other senior management positions have been created. Brian Devine, formerly IT systems manager is now head of IT and assumes responsibility for Pink’s operational and development systems as well as all aspects of Pink’s technology platforms and dependencies. Claire Parkes assumes the position of HR manager, reporting to Pinks network services director, Kay Leslie.

Barry Meeks, chief executive of the Pink Group, says: “The year ahead is going to be a challenging one for everyone involved in the mortgage industry.

“But I am confident that we have a solid, dependable and experienced team that will see Pink go from strength to strength. I would like to congratulate them all on their well deserved promotions.”
