Trussle, the firm of mortgage brokers has announced that it is appointing a new Chief Executive Officer, with Ian Larkin set to take on the role.
Larkin has a wealth of experience within the financial services sector that he will bring to his new position, including stints with Accenture, McKinsey, Virgin Money and Lloyds Bank – all of which were positions of seniority. Prior to accepting the vacancy at Tussle, Larkin spent five years working for Target Group as its CEO and oversaw a major expansion at the company during that time.
This was achieved by making use of innovative tech to enhance the experience of Target Group customers, as well as to advance productivity, and Trussle will be hoping that he is able to produce similar results for them.
Trussle is a digital firm that offers mortgage advice and brokering and is the first service of its type in the UK. It was originally launched five years ago and recently announced that it had attracted further funding to the tune of £7.5 million.
On taking up his new role, Larkin said that getting a mortgage to be able to buy a home is a very difficult process for many people and that more is needed to be done to make it easier. He went on to add that technology could be harnessed to make the mortgage industry better for lenders and borrowers.
Ensuring that mortgage advisors have CeMAP training is another way companies can make getting a mortgage easier for customers, as they can help them find the right deal.
