Omni Capital expands team with three new appointments
Omni Capital, the specialist short-term lender, has announced three new staff appointments to support its expanding broker-centric business proposition.
Based at the lender’s Operations Centre in Watford, Herts., the three new roles are in underwriting, sales support and finance.
Maria Curatolo is appointed to the position of Underwriting Case Manager. Reporting to Omni Capital’s head of underwriting, Ed McAra, she is responsible for the efficient preparation and management of pending loan applications.
Curatolo was previously with Barclays Wealth International where she worked in the International Mortgage division. Prior to that, she held senior underwriting positions at lender Abbey for Intermediaries.
Nicky Pack Joins Omni Capital as Senior Office Administrator. Her dual responsibilities in this newly-created role comprise hands-on support for the lender’s broker-facing sales team, and all aspects of post-completion portfolio management.
Pack joins the company from City-based Octopus Investments. Beginning her career at a mortgage brokerage, she has over ten years’ experience in financial services as a senior underwriter with lenders igroup, GE Money Home Lending and Money Partners.
Angela Bowder is appointed to the new infrastructure role of Finance Officer in which she has key responsibility for the smooth management of the company’s internal accounting and finance systems, including payment of intermediary commissions and fees.
A finance specialist by training and experience, Bowder has held a range of accounting positions at a variety of organisations – from utilities and health practices, to privately-owned commercial businesses.
Colin Sanders, chief executive officer of Omni Capital, said:
“Since successfully re-launching our lending offering in September 2011, we have enjoyed steady, incremental growth in the business. As we grow our numbers, so will we the team. But it’s important to recruit – and retain – the right calibre of person.
“Maria, Nicky and Angela fit the bill perfectly. I’m delighted they’ve chosen Omni as their next career steps, and look forward to working closely with each of them as we take the company forward to its next phase of expansion.”
