Target Group has appointed Katie Pender as its senior solutions lead.
Pender (pictured), who was previously head of mortgage operations at Capita, will report into chief commercial officer Stuart Anderson.
Stuart Anderson said: “We are delighted to welcome Katie on board at Target Group as she brings a huge amount of knowledge and expertise that will help enhance the experience we offer to clients.
“We have ambitious plans for the mortgage market and the business will benefit greatly from having someone of Katie’s calibre spearheading activity.
“I look forward to working closely with Katie again to drive innovation in the market and deliver new solutions for our clients.”
Pender added: “I’ve worked in the industry for 15 years and have followed the developments at Target Group.
“Even from a distance it has been clear the company is growing and diversifying its client base in a period when other providers are doing the opposite.
“The appointments of my former colleagues Marcella Rich and Stuart Anderson to senior roles also signified to me the strength of the leadership team at Target Group and so now the opportunity has arisen to join the company, I’m pleased to say I’ve jumped at the chance.
“I am a firm believer that disruption will occur in every industry and my new role at Target provides me with an excellent opportunity to drive that disruption in the mortgage industry.
“Target has ambitious plans to introduce a new offering to the market by leveraging its technical, digital and operational capabilities and I want to be at the forefront of that.”
