Hometrack has hired Piero Bassu as director of financial services and capital markets and Andrew Vaughan as head of mortgage origination solutions.
Bassu has spent more than 16 years in the global banking sector with a focus on valuation and mortgage risk.
Vaugham has 25 years’ experience in financial services and will be responsible for business development of Hometrack’s core products for the mortgage origination marketplace.
Charlie Bryant, chief executive of Hometrack, said: “The appointment of Piero and Andrew is significant for Hometrack.
“Following our recent acquisition by ZPG earlier this year, we are now in an even stronger position to expand and enhance our solutions to deliver greater value for our lender partners.
“Hometrack remains committed to further innovation in collateral valuation and mortgage analytics to help lenders enhance the customer experience while managing risk and seeking out new opportunities.
“Piero and Andrew bring a wealth of real world expertise from the banking and retail lending sectors and are strong additions to the current Hometrack team.”

He was also head of mortgage credit risk for Platform Home Loans, which was the intermediary mortgage lender of Britannia Building Society.
