Challenger bank Masthaven has appointed three new staff members across its mortgage and savings divisions.

The new roles will focus on supporting the bank’s customer service and product range alongside its digital and emerging technologies research.


The three new hires are:

  • David Kennedy, Lending Operations Director, previously Director of Operations at Shawbrook Bank;
  • Mark Evans, Product Director, previously Head of Product Management at Shawbrook Bank;
  • Baris Aksoy, Data Protection Officer, previously an Information Governance Subject Matter Expert at the NHS.

Masthaven has also made some internal moves, with Al Southall taking-up the newly established role of Chief Technology Officer and Simon Furnell becomming Chief Operating Officer. He will have responsibilities for product development, the post origination servicing of loans, operations and retail savings.

Jon Hall, Managing Director at Masthaven, said: “As Masthaven continues to develop, it is critical that we maintain an unrelenting focus on what is key to achieving our plans. It is fantastic to welcome new experts to the Masthaven team and congratulate those who have moved internally as they help us to underpin the growth and direction of the business.


“These changes will ensure that we continue to move forwards in both the specialist lending and challenger bank space and enable our team to provide innovative products and services for both our broker partners and our customers.”
