Pepper Homeloans, the mortgage lending division of Pepper (UK) Limited, has today announced the appointment of Jeff Knight, who will join as Head of Marketing in January.
Knight joins Pepper Homeloans with over 20 years’ experience in the financial services industry and is well positioned to take Pepper’s proposition to the next level.
Since it launched earlier this year, Pepper Homeloans has carved out a niche by providing residential and buy-to-let mortgages to customers who require a more personalised approach to borrowing.
The company has experienced substantial growth and is continuing to expand as they pursue their strategy to open doors to the many people who are underserved by the traditional mortgage finance sector.
Richard Klemmer, CEO of Pepper UK, says: “Jeff brings a wealth of mortgage market experience to Pepper Homeloans. He will be instrumental in further building our brand as we look to expand our offering though selected intermediaries. Jeff’s expertise and deep relationships in the mortgage market will ensure we continue to provide our intermediaries with every opportunity to achieve the right outcome for their customers.”
Knight added: “It’s exciting to join Pepper UK at such a pivotal point for the business. Their growth strategy and unique way of thinking are refreshing and I truly believe that they can bring something new to the competitive mortgage marketplace.”
The Pepper Group was founded in Sydney in 2001 and has since expanded across Australasia and Europe. The company now has over £23 billion of assets under management, nearly half of which is in the UK.
