Online lender ThinCats has announced the appointment of Samantha Gray as General Counsel. Gray has over 16 years experience in the legal profession having worked as a Partner at Langley Solicitors LLP and heading up their Finance Law Unit which covered financial services, banking, insolvency and restructuring matters. In her role at ThinCats, Gray will provide commercial and legal advice across the Group and will be involved in the development of operational and transactional processes. She will also oversee the securities, monitoring and recoveries teams.
Gray commented on her new position at the peer to peer lender;
“ThinCats have a fantastic reputation for helping businesses across the UK realise their financial goals. They encourage growth, development and innovation in UK business and it’s exciting to get the opportunity to be a part of that.”
Damon Walford, CDO at ThinCats, said they were delighted to have her as part of the team while predicting promising results for 2017;
“Samantha joins us at a very exciting time; Q2 of 2017 is going to be huge. May was a record month, and the running total is at almost £15 million already in the quarter. With an incredibly diverse pipeline of loans in prospect, the second quarter of 2017 may well be going down in the ThinCats record books, and the continuing expansion of the team will only help this continue.”
