Chris Willis has joined the team at alternative lender borro, and will help lead the firm through its next phase of development as an online lending and liquidity marketplace for luxury personal assets.

He also has experience working within the media industry, spending two years as head of trading at the Mail on Sunday, prior to which he was advertising manager at the Guardian for nine years.

Commenting on the appointment, Paul Aitken, CEO and founder of borro, said: “borro is at a pivotal point as a company. We are excited to be developing our business as well as positioning borro as the number one online lending facility for luxury personal assets. This is an exciting time for the company and Chris’s appointment comes quickly after we announced Nigel Morris, co-founder of Capital One, as chairman. Chris has a wealth of experience in the business development field and will really help us through this next phase.”

Chris Willis added: “It’s great to be joining borro at a key stage in the company’s growth. I am looking forward to working with the talented team here to deliver great service and rewards to our partners, introducers and clients”

Launched in the UK in 2008 and in the US in January 2012, borro has defined a new category of lending – ‘Personal Asset Lending’ – in the process. With an average loan value of £7,000, borro focuses on providing liquidity from luxury personal assets.
