edeus appoints senior finance team

edeus has made four appointments to complete its senior finance team and work under chief financial officer Ian Lonergan when he joins the start-up on November 15.

Ian Sutton has been hired as interim finance director pending the arrival of Lonergan, formally head of business analysis at GMAC-RFC.

He previously worked for 15 years at Gerrard Investment Management.

Steve Maydew becomes head of commercial finance, having previously worked for 13 years with the HBOS Group, most recently as head of finance, specialist credit risk.

Ian Smith is appointed finance controller, having previously worked for Mortgage Force, and Charmaine Daniels joins as the edeus treasurer.

Daniels previously worked at the Caudwell Group, where she was group treasury manager.

Michael Bolton, chief executive at edues, says: As edeus will originate loans and securitise them, it was essential that we found individuals with the right backgrounds and expertise to manage our finance function.

Having recently signed a first rate chief financial officer who joins us in November, Im delighted that we have identified such high calibre people as Ian, Steve, Ian and Charmaine to work with him.

They each have different and complementary experience, and I look forward to being able to welcome them all to edeus.
