Hometrack makes two hires including L&G’s Andrew Vaughan
Hometrack has made two senior appointments to its financial services team.

Piero Bassu has joined the business as director of financial services and capital markets while Andrew Vaughan has been appointed as head of mortgage origination solutions.

Vaughan has more than 25 years’ experience within financial services including senior roles at Legal and General Surveying Services, Lloyds, TSB, Bradford and Bingley and UK Asset Resolution.

Bassu has spent more than 16 years in the global banking sector, focusing on valuation and mortgage risk, most recently as head of IFRS9 delivery for Macquarie Bank.

He has also held positions at Barclays Investment Banking Division in Asia Pacific and for Platform Home Loans.



Significant appointment

Hometrack CEO Charlie Bryant said the appointments were significant for the business after its acquisition by Zoopla Property Group earlier this year.

“Hometrack remains committed to further innovation in collateral valuation and mortgage analytics to help lenders enhance the customer experience while managing risk and seeking out new opportunities,” he said.

“Piero and Andrew bring a wealth of real world expertise from the banking and retail lending sectors and are strong additions to the current Hometrack team.”

Director of financial services and capital markets Piero Bassu said: “This is an exciting time to be joining Hometrack. The company has ambitious growth plans and strong momentum.”

Head of mortgage origination solutions Andrew Vaughan added: “I’m hugely excited to be joining the team and look forward to playing my own part in building on its impressive reputation.”
