Pepper Money hires Voss as CFO after former head takes ESG role – Mortgage Strategy
Pepper Money has hired Andrew Voss as chief financial officer at the specialist lender.
He replaces the firm’s previous chief financial officer, Anthony Keeble, who moves into the newly-created role of director of ESG & sustainability, tasked with leading its long-term strategy to become a net-zero business.
The lender says Voss, “has over 20 years’ experience in financial services and a proven track record of establishing, managing and driving performance in specialist lending businesses”.
Voss joins from Bluestone Mortgages, where he had been chief financial officer for 14 years.
Prior to that, he had been a senior manager at PricewaterhouseCoopers for almost nine years, leaving in 2006.
Pepper Money offers a range of residential and buy-to-let, as well as first and second charge mortgage products to customers with more complex cases who have been underserved by traditional lenders.
Voss says: “There are undoubtedly challenges in the current economic environment, but Pepper is in a strong position to build for the future, and we are already seeing positive signs in the markets.
“We look forward to being able to talk more about these developments in the coming weeks as we continue our focus on helping our existing customers and providing more opportunities to new customers who are overlooked by the mainstream lenders.”
Keeble adds: “At Pepper Money, our long-term goal is to transition to a net zero business.
“This is core to our strategy and will play our part in leading change as we further develop products and support for our customers as they make their transition to a low-emission economy and we continue to help our colleagues make changes, building on the good work we have already delivered.”
