Trussle has appointed Simon Williams as its new chairman and Supriya Uchil has joined its advisory board.
Williams has over 30 years’ experience in the financial services industry, having previously held positions at Citigroup, and more recently HSBC where he served as head of wealth management.
Meanwhile, the firm’s other new appointment, Uchil, has over 20 years’ experience in technology companies such as Amazon and Zynga.
Uchil’s new role will focus on improving the customer journey throughout the mortgage process.
Trussle founder and chief executive Ishaan Malhi comments: “Appointing such high calibre executives gives us an unfair advantage, I am excited about the impact Williams and Uchil will have.”
Uchil says: “A mortgage is usually the largest financial decision someone makes in their lifetime, yet the process is opaque and overly complex.
“I am working closely with the leadership team, as well as engineering and operations, to understand homeowners’ needs and encourage innovation.”
Williams adds: “Having worked in the financial world for many years, I am motivated by disruptive fintech businesses that are transforming the financial industry for consumers across the board.
“The industry is outdated, confusing and expensive. In the 21st century, consumers deserve better – a more convenient, clearer and hassle-free service.”
