Vertex appoints Barry Meeks to drive growth
Meeks joins Vertex with over 30 years’ experience in retail banking, business process outsourcing, mortgage lending and risk management in both executive and non-executive director positions.
Robert Coyle, managing director at Vertex Financial Services, said: “Barry is a valuable addition to Vertex. He has a proven track record in financial services and is hugely respected in the industry. The insight he can provide into the third party servicing sector will help to drive our business forward as the market continues to evolve.”
Meeks was previously chief executive at CAF Bank and non-executive director at The Tenent Group. Up to the beginning of 2013 he had been working for the last four years with a team in the private equity space to develop and launch a new retail banking operation.
As a previous chief executive at Homeloan Management, Pink Homeloans and Mutual One, Meeks has a unique perspective in balancing service provision and distribution to the financial sector whilst at the same time understanding directly and having a strong insight into the challenges and needs of retail banking and mortgage lending.
Meeks said: “Vertex has a great existing client base and a proven ability to deliver software and full business process outsourcing to the market.
“It’s a very exciting time for the company as it continues to widen its service offering. I am looking forward to working with the senior team to continue growing the business and to ensure that we are well placed to support our existing and potential customers through the changing regulatory landscape.”
