Laura Smith joins from Fleet Mortgages where she spent six years working in sales and marketing.
Knowledge Bank is now also hiring full stack engineers, database engineers, DevOps engineers, telephone business development managers and a sales director.
The recruitment drive follows a record month for turnover in March 2022 and Ying Tan taking a shareholding in the business in December last year.
Founder and chief executive, Nicola Firth (pictured) said: “Laura brings a wealth of experience to the role and we’re thrilled to have her on board at this stage in our growth. Her appointment kicks off a rapid expansion plan, and the next year will be a pivotal one for Knowledge Bank as we grow our team and launch a truly revolutionary suite of products for both brokers and lenders.
“Innovation is in our DNA and the time is right for us to scale up. It has been an exceptional few years for Knowledge Bank as we have led the charge in digitising criteria research solutions. Now we are in a unique position in the marketplace to be able to utilise what we have built and captured so far to push the boundaries even further within the mortgage fintech space.”
Smith added: “The Knowledge Bank platform is essential for both lenders and brokers in this age. Its proven track record is a great foundation on which to build on and I’m excited to join the team at this stage of its growth.
“Knowledge Bank have seen constant growth month-on-month since [it] launched which is a considerable feat and I look forward to being a part of that continued success as the proposition is expanded.”
