|Thursday, 02 June 2016|
Dollar UK, a leading provider of consumer finance - both online and on the high street - has appointed the former CFO of LaSer UK, the consumer finance arm of BNP Paribas.
Dollar UK has hired Tony Deakin as its new Chief Financial Officer, reporting directly to CEO Stuart Howard. Tony took up his position on Monday 9th May, and sits on Dollar UK’s Board.
Tony is a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and a member of the UK Association of Corporate Treasurers. Before moving to LaSer, Tony worked at Barclays Bank within the Barclaycard subsidiary, which included serving as the Chief Financial Officer for Barclaycard Germany, based in Hamburg. Prior to financial services, Tony gained experience in senior finance and treasury roles within the engineering, mobile phone and utilities sectors for businesses including General Electric, the Caudwell Group and Severn Trent Water.
Since the appointment of Stuart Howard as UK CEO in November 2014, Dollar UK has made a number of significant changes to its business, including strengthening its lending criteria and affordability assessments, and no longer charging default fees associated with loan products. Dollar UK is also a Living Wage Employer.
Stuart Howard, CEO at Dollar UK, said: “Tony brings with him extensive knowledge and expertise across the Finance and Risk spectrum and will be an instrumental member of Dollar UK’s management team. As Chief Financial Officer, Tony will hold responsibility for Finance, Risk, Audit, Loss Prevention and Property across the UK business.
“At Dollar UK, we believe we have a strong future, and we are looking for every opportunity to make sure we drive this industry forward. Appointing Tony is further evidence of this. As a socially responsible lender, we have ambitious plans to grow the business.”
