Two ex-Nemo Personal Finance members of staff have joined Chaseblue Loans.
Alun Hopkins has been recruited as head of underwriting, while Gareth Shallis has joined as a second charge mortgage adviser.
Both are based at Chaseblue’s offices in Barry, South Wales, where it employs 20 people at its Welsh HQ. It is an associate business of Y3S Group Limited.
Ben Gillespie (pictured), Chaseblue’s managing director, said: “Alun spent almost nine years at Nemo Personal Finance progressing from Broker Liaison Officer to Senior Broker Liaison and was then promoted to Team leader where he was a highly regarded team member as well as a great leader and motivator. He brings a wealth of experience to the team and will help oversee Chaseblue’s growth plans in the coming years. He decided to join the firm as he saw the potential in the development of business and particularly wanted to make his mark on a smaller organisation.
“Gareth was a loan officer with Nemo for nearly eleven years. He was responsible for selling secured loans, processing them from application to completion he is a consistent target hitter with a great eye for detail and a focus on customer outcomes. He joined as he saw a great opportunity to be part of a successful brokerage and to remain within an industry he enjoys being part of.”
