CrowdProperty hires new CFO

CrowdProperty has appointed Steve Morgan (pictured above) as chief financial officer.

He will also lead the risk agenda at the company as part of the risk committee, which is headed by non-executive chairman John Mould.

Steve is a chartered accountant with 25 years of experience across senior financial and operational roles, spanning both investment banking and retail banking environments.

He joins CrowdProperty from Weatherbys Bank, where he was head of finance.

Prior to this, he held senior positions at various companies, including Société Générale Corporate and Investment Banking, Daiwa Capital Markets and Lehman Brothers.

“CrowdProperty has an excellent reputation as a leading player in the property lending sector that has delivered hugely impressive results since its inception,” said Steve.

“The business is changing the game of property project finance with a clear vision and strategy for the future which is very exciting. 

“I’m looking forward to working with the team on the opportunities and challenges ahead, embedding the right structure and bringing my experience in driving growth to support the business as it scales and further strengthens its proposition to both borrowers and diverse sources of capital.”  

Michael Bristow, CEO at CrowdProperty, commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Steve to our leadership team, where his expertise will be a powerful addition to the executive team and board of directors as we continue on our rapid growth trajectory. 

“The quality, proficiency and deep financial services expertise that Steve will bring to the business adds further firepower to CrowdProperty and further demonstrates our commitment to building a strongly resourced business with market-leading talent through our high growth stages.

“We’re working on a number of exciting business developments behind the scenes, and Steve’s 15 years of experience of operating at MD level including traversing regulatory scrutiny in large, regulated businesses will stand the business in very good stead as we realise our growth potential.”

This follows the appointment of Damon Walford as chief commercial officer last month.
