Lynda Blackwell (pictured) has joined Uinsure as a risk consultant.

She previously spent 16 years at the FCA as a mortgage policy manager and then mortgage sector manager.

Most recently she has been an independent consultant in the industry and a non-executive at Molo Finance.

Blackwell said: “The tech developments that Uinsure are making have made the decision to join the team easy.

“The growth they have demonstrated in 2019 alone showcases the impact they are having on the mortgage market and I am delighted to join as we move into 2020.”

Simon Taylor, chief executive at Uinsure, added: “The latest appointment of Lynda is a fantastic opportunity for Uinsure as she has great experience within risk and compliance and will certainly add substantial knowledge to the team.

“Uinsure has set out a clear mission for 2020 and Lynda’s support will enable us to make huge strides in achieving this.”

Uinsure has made two other senior appointments, hiring Brionie Hemingway as chief governance officer and Cameron Parsons as head of digital optimisation.

Hemingway has previously worked at PwC London and Deloitte North and has over 20 years’ experience in risk and regulation.

Taylor said: “It’s brilliant to welcome Brionie to Uinsure, she has a wealth of experience in risk and regulation and is a valuable asset to our management team; Brionie’s expert knowledge will be instrumental in Uinsure’s continuous success story.”

Parsons will work closely with Uinsure’s integration partners, embedding and optimising digital innovation focussed on making the end-to-end process for both advisers and clients as quick and easy as possible.

Smith, chief innovation officer at Uinsure, added: “Cameron joining Uinsure demonstrates our real intent to innovate the mortgage market with exciting developments, including digital optimisation and I am certain that he will support us effectively in achieving this.

“We have huge ambitions and as we continue to grow, will continue to build our team with high calibre appointments.
