Method brings in new MD

Method Valuation UK Limited has appointed experienced banker Stephen Henman (pictured above) as its new managing director.

He joins the business from start-up bank GBB, where he was chief lending officer.  

Before that, he was head of business banking strategy and head of commercial underwriting at Atom Bank, and has held roles at Santander and Lloyds Banking Group.

Stephen aims to bring his lender experience and skills to Method’s senior leadership, which the company considers necessary for the next level of its expansion.

“Having partnered with Method during my time at start-up banks, I have first-hand experience of the quality of its service and proactive approach,” said Stephen.

“When I moved from large banks to start-ups, I wanted the opportunity to use new technology and a fresh approach to offer a better service for borrowers. 

“Method has the same principles, and my role is to help it to transform further in its chosen markets.

“A growing client base and further developments planned to the technology make this an even more exciting proposition.”

The new hire is set to enable the fintech valuation panel management firm’s current MD, Mark Robertson, to refocus on his main role as MD of parent company, Robertson Simpson Group.

Mark commented: “2020-2021 has been a very exciting time for Method and we have seen and are continuing to see outstanding growth.  

“We have a series of new developments due to be released imminently that will see this growth continue further, and it is only right that the company’s management is strengthened to reflect this.  

“I look forward to working closely with Steve as one of the MD’s of our group’s businesses, and assisting in delivering our shared vision for Method.”

The fintech’s cloud-based valuation management system enables users to secure quotations for and instruct valuations of residential and commercial property assets.
