Hodgson has joined from Assetz Capital, where he was underwriter director. He previously spent more than two decades at Yorkshire Bank where he held a variety of roles, before taking the post of commercial real estate manager at National Australia Bank.
Relendex suggested that Hodgson’s long career in the sector meant that he has a “significant portfolio” of broker contacts.
Paul Sonabend, executive chairman at Relendex, said the lender was “growing fast” and always looking for talented professionals.
He continued: “James impressed us with his wealth of expertise as well as his strong sector relationships and track record in building and converting leads – all of which were key in our decision to bring James onboard.”
Hodgson said that Relendex was a “forward-thinking” lender, adding: “I am looking forward to using my knowledge, experience and interpersonal skills to play my part in the next stage of Relendex’s development as a leading peer-to-peer lender.”
