Generation Home hires Virgin Money’s Peter Dockar as commercial director
Fintech mortgage lender Generation Home has hired Peter Dockar, Virgin Money’s former head of customer value, as its commercial director.

Dockar will oversee the development of the lender’s commercial proposition and product evolution. His key responsibilities include expanding and building on broker relationships.

He is the firm’s first commercial director and will report to chief commercial officer Graham McClelland.

Dockar was head of customer value at Virgin Money for around three years. He served as head of lending at CYBG before it was merged with Virgin Money.

He also worked at HSBC for around 12 years in various senior roles including European head of retail underwriting and UK head of mortgages.

Dockar joins John Bridgman, who was head of mortgage credit at Virgin Money, and joined the lender as head of credit earlier this year.

Will Rice, chief executive and founder of Generation Home, said: “Pete has an outstanding track record of driving growth and success in his previous roles. His buyer-first ethos mirrors that of Generation Home, making him an incredibly exciting hire. We’re delighted to have him onboard.”

McClelland added: “Pete’s experience in the mortgage industry is a valuable asset for Generation Home. His drive and enthusiasm for our business make him an excellent new addition to the team.”

Dockar said: “Generation Home is a truly innovative lender with financial inclusion at its heart. My previous experience, and conviction that home-ownership should be accessible to all who aspire to it, make this an incredible fit.”

Generation Home was launched in 2019. It is a joint borrower, sole proprietor mortgage lender that helps first-time buyers, remortgagors and homebuyers enhance their borrowing ability as friends and family can boost their funds.

It recently launched 95 per cent loan to value products in March, and received £1bn in funding from Waterfall in January.

Its products are available through TMA Club, Legal & General, MAB and Simply Biz.
