As the year begins, Lendix shows its strong ambitions for development in continental Europe, in its existing geographies (France, Spain and Italy) and also with the opening of two new countries, whose names will be announced shortly. To support this growth, the team is strengthened with the arrival of three new profiles.
Amandine Houpe, former Financial Control Director of M6 Group, joins Lendix as Chief Financial Officer. She reports directly to the Management Board. With more than 15 years experience in corporate finance, as an auditor and consultant on financial transactions, then within the M6 Group, Amandine will structure Lendix’s Finance function to support its rapid development.
Francis Wenstrup, former Senior Operations Manager at OnDeck, joins Lendix as Productivity Manager and will report directly to COO Patrick de Nonneville. After many years working for one of America’s largest online lending platforms for small businesses, Francis will focus on improving and securing our processes. This is of major importance as operating growing platforms over several geographies brings new risks as well as opportunities.
“I am excited to start a new challenge with Lendix and fortunate to join a fantastic team during its significant growth phase. I have worked in the fintech industry from its early stages and have seen the various courses of evolution from scepticism to explosive growth. Fintech will continue to disrupt the financial sector and I look forward to help Lendix become the leading lender in the European marketplace“, adds Francis Wenstrup.
Philippe Lapeyre, former Chief Risk Officer of TIP Trailer Services, joins Lendix as Chief Risk Officer for France. With 25 years experience, Philippe will have responsibility for credit analysis and portfolio management.
“Philippe will bring us an indispensable experience in the credit analysis of SMEs and ETIs acquired within large groups such as General Electric Capital”, explains Olivier Goy, founder of Lendix.
