Clever Lending has appointed two new directors to lead the specialist distributor’s ambitious plans for growth across the mortgage and lending market.

Kevin Blount is now overseeing all operational aspects of the company as Director of Technical Operations, with Michelle Neville being responsible for delivering Clever Lending’s sales strategy as Director of New Business.

Blount said “After working at Clever Lending for several years, I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to step up into this new position. 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 is a really exciting time to develop Clever Lending even further.”

Neville, who herself has been involved with the specialist distributor since it was launched, said “Mortgage product and new business development is my forte, so it is with great pleasure I take on this new role. Our efforts will now focus on nurturing existing relationships and engaging with brokers who may not be aware of how a specialist distributer, such as Clever Lending, can benefit their businesses.”
