P2P lender ThinCats appoints Jill Sandford and Damon Walford to board of directors PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 22 December 2016
Peer-to-peer lender ThinCats has appointed Jill Sandford and Damon Walford to the board of directors, as the company celebrates the first anniversary of ESF Capital’s investment. Both will be responsible for driving business growth, with a specific focus on originating loans and broadening the platform’s network of sponsors across the UK. 

ESF Capital acquired a 73.4% stake in ThinCats in December last year, and has since provided the platform with investment, working capital and significant management and operational resource, along with underwriting capital for the loans on its platform.

Jill Sandford was hired by the company last year, prior to ESF’s investment, as Chief Operating Officer. Before joining ThinCats, Jill was a Director of Restructuring and Recovery with a top ten national chartered accountancy firm and she has almost 30 years of experience in this area.

More recently, the firm hired Damon Walford as Chief Development Officer. Damon has more than 20 years’ experience working in the financial sector, with a particular focus on SME lending.

Kevin Caley, Chairman and Founder of ThinCats, said: “These appointments recognise the huge contributions that Jill and Damon have made to the business over the past few months and our confidence that they will be able to drive the business forward.

“They share our vision of achieving growth based upon quality rather than quantity and retaining the ‘pure p2p’ approach that allows ThinCats investors to select their own individual deals and set the interest rate they wish to earn.”
