Masthaven's Shelley Connelly takes control of short-term lending

Masthaven Bank has announced that Shelley Connelly (pictured above) will now oversee short-term lending as director of lending and credit operations.

Shelley, who was formerly director of mortgage lending at the bank, will now be responsible for the day-to-day management of the lending operations team across both short- and long-term lending.

She will focus on streamlining Masthaven’s operational processes and turnaround times to improve the experience for the bank’s partners.

Shelley will also work with chief lending officer, David Kennedy, to oversee the lender’s credit operations, credit decisioning and lending transformation teams.

“Even though we’ve not been able to meet face-to-face for some time now, we remain totally committed to investing in our people,” commented David.

“The bank is built on strong teams that need great leaders; Shelley is an example of this strong leadership, and she will bring a wealth of experience and specialist knowledge to her new role overseeing short-term lending.

“It’s also a powerful reminder of the success of our Women in Leadership programme which the bank launched in 2020.

“Diversity and inclusion are at the top of our agenda at Masthaven, and we believe that creating a more inclusive and representative workplace is not only the right thing to do, but also critical for our success as a business.”
