Kevin Blount was appointed to oversee all operational aspects as director of technical operations and Michelle Neville was hired as director of new business to deliver the sales strategy.
The pair have been promoted following the departure of Sam Kirtikar, who left his position as CEO in July.
Neville (pictured left) has been involved with Clever Lending since it launched and said it was a great pleasure to take on the new role.
She said: “Our efforts will now focus on nurturing existing relationships and engaging with brokers who may not know how a specialist distributer such as Clever Lending can benefit their businesses.
“With aspirations of growth and increased product offering, the team and I are looking forward to building our presence across the specialist lending market,” she added.
Blount (pictured right) has been at the distributor for more than six years, having previously been an adviser at Payplan Financial Services.
He said: “The growing specialist lending market presents huge opportunities for the business and with a recent surge in people looking to take out alternative finance solutions now’s an exciting time to develop Clever Lending even further.
“Mortgage brokers are experts in what they do and have great product knowledge, but the fact is, the market is a moving beast and new product solutions are constantly being introduced in the specialist space,” he added.
“Plus, if the situation is a bit more complex, there’s nothing wrong with getting a second opinion,” Blount said.
Clever Lending offers first charge packaging, second charge, commercial and bridging loans.
