The MT Finance Group announced last week the addition of new members to its board of directors, with an impressive 30% of the board now consisting of female representation.
This follows the news of a management buy-out announced last month which has consolidated the ownership of the company back into the hands of the joint founders, Tomer Aboody and Joshua Elash who set up the business in 2008.
MT Finance was started after the founders saw the effects of the financial crisis first hand - and companies were heavily restricted from obtaining finance from high street banks.
MT Finance is a specialist finance provider, offering alternatives such as bridging loans and auction finance, which allow you to bridge between the purchase of one property and sale of another, with funds often available in 2 to 4 weeks. Other products on their panel include second charge mortgages, landlord loans and even bridging loans for business purposes.
The new board update will see additional team members added including Lenka Pajkošová, head of underwriting, Millie Dyson, chief marketing officer, James Anderson, operations director, and Gareth Lewis, commercial director.
Founding director, Joshua Elash, commented: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of several new directors to the board of the MT Finance Group. Lenka, Millie, James, and Gareth have been valuable members of the executive committee at MT Finance for some time. The appointments add real value to the company and reflect our desire to recognise, support, and empower the wonderfully talented people we are lucky enough to work with. The additions also re-emphasise our ESG principles and commitment to the Women in Finance Charter.”
Millie Dyson, CMO said: “We are proud to promote an inclusive environment at MT Finance and strive to drive genuine change in the financial services sector. I am honoured to be one of the Group’s first female board members and will continue to ensure we remain focused in our efforts to maintain a diverse and equal workforce as we take the company forward.”
The firm was also one of the first signatories of The Women in Finance Charter, an initiative aimed at increasing representation and exposure for females in the financial sector.
