Glenhawk has significantly strengthened its senior team with the appointment of Caroline Ong as Non-Executive Director. With more than 20 years of commercial and residential real estate experience as a board advisor, committee member and executive director, Caroline will provide strategic operational and governance counsel to the Glenhawk leadership team as it targets further loan book growth, additional funding sources and new product launches.
Effective immediately, Caroline joins existing Non-Executive Director Harry Hill, formerly chairman of Rightmove and former CEO of Countrywide, on the Glenhawk Board, alongside CEO Guy Harrington and Managing Director of Lending Nick Hilton.
Harry Hill, Non-Executive Director of Glenhawk, commented: “Caroline is a well known and highly experienced industry heavyweight and her decision to join Glenhawk is a coup for the business and a major statement of intent as we continue to scale up the business. Her significant operational background, the experience of navigating increasingly complex regulatory environments, as well as her adherence to corporate governance, will be invaluable as we continue to mature.”
Caroline Ong said: “I have been following the rapid growth trajectory of the Glenhawk business from afar, increasingly growing its profile and market share to become a lender of choice, and the opportunity to join two of the industry’s leading visionaries in Guy and Harry and support this expansion was too good to turn down. The UK property lending and wider financial services sectors remain ripe for disruption, both in terms of available products as well as the technology driving this change, and in Glenhawk I see the leader of the next wave of businesses that will capitalise on changing client requirements and set new standards for the industry.”
