Blend Network appoints head of origination

Blend Network has appointed Paul Watson (pictured above) as head of origination.

His appointment will enable the P2P lending platform to better serve its existing clients, as well as drive the acquisition of new borrowers.

Prior to joining Blend, Paul worked as a senior development finance originator at Octopus Property, where he focused on the sourcing and execution of development finance projects in residential, mixed-use and student accommodation schemes.

He previously served as a senior development manager at Churchmanor Estates in Ipswich.

Paul’s appointment follows the recent successful completion of a £10m funding round by Blend.

Paul said that he was pleased to be joining Blend Network at such an exciting time.

“The company has already gained recognition as one of the most innovative and dynamic businesses in the alternative property-lending sector.

“Its business model and strategy offer property developers overlooked by mainstream lenders an opportunity to secure funding, while providing lenders with robust returns secured on bricks and mortar. 

“I believe the company has a great future and I look forward to playing a strong role in its expansion and success.”
