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.
