Broadbridge had worked for three years at Tiuta and before that held roles with short-term lender UX Mortgages and the Essex-based packager, LMS.
He also served in quality control functions with CoFunds, one of the UK’s leading investment fund management platforms.
He will report to Omni’s head of underwriting, Ed McAra.
Colin Sanders, chief executive officer of Omni, says: “By adding individuals of Broadbridge’s calibre to our already well-regarded and highly experienced team of senior underwriters, we prove our continuing commitment to long-term, value-adding investment. This appointment is just the first of a number of exciting new announcements we plan to make in 2012.”
