LendingCrowd appoints ex-Pollen Street Capital chief risk and compliance officer

LendingCrowd has appointed Robbie McKenzie (pictured above) to the newly created post of general counsel and chief risk and compliance officer.

He will lead the fintech lending platform’s legal, risk and compliance function and act as anti-money laundering officer.

Robbie will also focus on ensuring that LendingCrowd adheres to the FCA’s new rules for P2P platforms.

He joins from private equity fund manager Pollen Street Capital and has also served at Bank of Scotland and RBS.

Stuart Lunn, founder and CEO at LendingCrowd, said: “Few organisations of our size employ an in-house general counsel.

“However, LendingCrowd is committed to being a leader in regulation and compliance, rather than simply meeting our statutory obligations.”

Robbie added: “These are exciting times for LendingCrowd, and it is a real privilege to be joining them as we embark upon the next phase of our growth story.

“Stuart and the team have had a remarkable first five years and I’m confident that the next five will be even better.”
