Phoebus appoints sales director
He will be responsible for business development, new sales and developing existing client relationships and will report to managing director, Paul Hunt.
Pike has over 20 years senior management experience in financial services covering sales, marketing, operations and IT. He previously worked in various roles at Huntswood Outsourcing, Marlborough Stirling, Cheltenham & Gloucester, HML, Royal Bank of Scotland and most recently as managing director of Independent Business Consultants.
He has worked on various projects with Phoebus Software in a consultancy capacity.
Paul Hunt, managing director of Phoebus Software, said: “Richard is a perfect hire for us. 90% of Phoebus’s staff have a background in the mortgage industry and we spend a lot of time working as consultants to the wider mortgage market, rather than simply as experts in lender IT.
“Richard will help us do that better than ever. He has extensive experience in the market place, a strong knowledge base, and a great network of contacts that will help push our sales forward.”
Pike added: “I’ve worked with many mortgage software providers so I know how good Phoebus is within the market. The company has proven software to support originations and servicing and the consultancy side of the business has huge potential.
“Not only are the IT experts and consultants at Phoebus hugely experienced, this is also one of the only software providers who is prepared to put its money where its mouth is when it comes to research and development.
“Phoebus spends more than 25% of its turnover on R&D every year, and it’s that commitment to excellence that attracted me to the business.”
