Lendi Group names new general manager of lending



Online lending specialist Lendi Group has announced the appointment of a new general manager of lending, Shaun Lordan, who it says will drive the next stage of growth for the lending platform.

Formerly chief product officer at Nano, Lordan (pictured above) is a fintech executive specialising in consumer banking, having worked for HSBC, Barclays and Westpac across Europe, Africa and Australia.

His experience includes leading the mortgage product team across Africa for Barclays, where he helped it become the market share leader in South Africa through new products and analytics.

Lendi Group CEO David Hyman said the company was gearing up to pursue its “next growth horizon” as it closed out its migration of all Aussie Home Loan brokers onto the platform, an objective it referred to as ‘Aussie Ready’.

“We’re very excited to welcome Shaun to our lending team, working with chief product officer Travis Tyler, formerly of 86 400 [now called ubank] in building on our already successful lending portfolio,” Hyman said.

Lendi said the addition of Lordan and Tyler (pictured below) was a signal to its more than 1,300 brokers of its continuing commitment to the next stage of growth through a product-led sales approach.

The two recruits will be working alongside existing executive team members in the groups newly formed Experience Org, including chief growth officer Zara Cobb and CTO Joshua McKenzie.

The newly formed Experience Org has more than 200 members across product, lending, technology, design, data and marketing focused on designing, building and supporting brokers and customers.

Lordan said it was an exciting time to be joining Lendi Group, and to “play a key role in the group’s steadfast vision of changing the way Australians experience property lending.

“With an existing suite of lending products that are already market-leading, there really are exciting times ahead as the Group doubles down on its investment in innovation and technology,” Lordan said.

The Lendi Platform has assisted over 45,000 customers and has seen its customer base surge by 26% in the past 12 months, and the Group expects that to continue to grow amidst more refinancing.
