Nava appoints Wheal Thomas Hodgins PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 01 December 2016
Nava Finance Ltd, which is set to launch a new consumer lending platform in early 2017, has appointed recruitment consultancy Wheale Thomas Hodgins Plc to manage its executive search. 

Nava was co-founded in 2014 by Joseph Dlutowski, Abhai Rajguru and Richard Lee, who between them have over 75 years’ experience in and around financial services. Nearly two years into development, Nava is currently testing its platform and operations as it works towards its initial launch phase.

As executive search partner, Wheale Thomas Hodgins’ assignment will be to recruit an experienced executive team, sourcing senior talent for the business across a range of specialisms, including marketing, technology, risk and finance.

Wheale Thomas Hodgins was established in 1990 and has since grown to become one of the market leaders in financial services executive search, which was a key factor in Nava’s decision to appoint them.

Abhai Rajguru, co-founder and CFO of Nava Finance, said: “It is vital that any organisation we partner with understands the complexities of our business and the sector we operate in. With this in mind, we took careful consideration to find a partner that we knew would be able to source a senior team who have established blue chip experience complemented with working for innovative brands, to help successfully grow our business. Wheale Thomas Hodgins demonstrated all the necessary skills and experience and we are are delighted to be working with them.”

Tony Hodgins, Director, of Wheale Thomas Hodgins, said: “We work with a range of financial services businesses, from established retail banks to energetic market disruptors. Nava’s fresh approach to the unsecured consumer credit market is an exciting proposition and provides an excellent opportunity for individuals looking for a new challenge as part of a highly experienced team.”
