Boden, (pictured) was previously head of commercial mortgages at Aldermore.
He has also held positions at Lloyds Bank where he was local director and head of mortgages for its Northern England network and a previous role at HSBC.
Matthew Tooth, chief commercial officer at LendInvest, said: “This year our sales team has grown in direct response to the demand we are seeing in the market. It’s great to have someone of Ian’s calibre joining us to lead that team. Bringing years of sector experience with him, Ian has a unique skill set that makes me confident he is the right man to be driving our business into new areas, both regionally and from a product perspective.”
Boden’s appointment follows a string of new hires for the firm. In August Interbay’s senior business development manager (BDM) Andy Virgo joined as BDM for the South of England while earlier in the year Mint Bridging’s Sophie Mitchell-Chapman was appointed BDM in the North.
