Watts joined the firm 10 months ago as MD marketplace and was promoted to COO almost two months ago to oversee the development, recruitment and advice services at the mortgage.
In September, Habito agreed an £18.5m series B capital-raising deal in its latest funding round, which it plans to use to raise profile, build brand and invest in technology. The adviser has raised £27.5m so far in its progression from series A to B funding over the last nine months, after a £5.5m deal agreed in January.
Habito is reportedly working with several major retail banks and high street lenders to integrate its technology and systems directly to achieve real-time mortgage approvals, as well as applications.
Before Habito, Watts spent more than four years with Metro Bank and was formerly UK head of lending operations at Irish Bank Resolution Corporation Limited, formerly Anglo Irish Bank.
A spokesperson from Habito said: “We can confirm Jenny has moved on from Habito. This was a mutual decision, she remains a friend of the business and we wish her every success for the future.”
