Landbay, the buy-to-let focused peer-to-peer mortgage lender, has appointed Julian Cork as Chief Operating Officer (COO).  

Cork will join co-founders John Goodall and Gray Stern in overseeing Landbay’s business operations as the business continues to grow rapidly.

After 15 years at JPMorgan, Cork moved to Macquarie Group as Global Head of technology for the Corporate and Operations Groups. Cork’s international experience in institutional banking includes work in New York, Tokyo, Sydney and London.
Landbay aims to build £1 billion loan book within the next four years. Julian will play a vital role in setting business strategy and improving the business’s operational structures to meet its growth targets.
He will also play a key part in the development of Landbay’s individual savings accounts (ISA) offer after the government announced it is to include peer-to-peer lending in ISAs.
John Goodall, co-founder and CEO of Landbay says: “Julian’s fantastic hands-on management experience in banking and technology will be incredibly useful as we put in place the operational structures we need to continue our growth.  His deep understanding of wholesale financial services means that he is perfectly placed to help us to develop new strategic partnerships with institutional investors, who are increasingly attracted to Landbay’s innovative model.”
