Neo-lender expands team

A marketplace lender has announced that it has made two new appointments to its business development and digital teams.

Wisr has announced that Kyle Abourizk, one of the members of its SAS team, has been promoted to the role of business development manager (BDM) for NSW, Western Australia and South Australia.

Mr Abourizk’s new role will involve “working with the national business development team to support brokers and strengthen operations across these important markets”.


Meanwhile, the former mobile technology director at IBM IX, Per Thoresson, has been appointed as Wisr’s new head of digital.

Mr Thoresson previously worked at IBM IX’s Dubai office, where he was responsible for providing mobile and platform solutions across the financial services, healthcare and government sectors. Mr Thoresson was responsible for delivering multiple award-winning projects across the Middle East and Africa region.

Anthony Nantes, Wisr’s chief executive officer, said: “[Per] Thoresson will lead the company’s digital strategy – including new product introduction and development of existing digital channels.”

“Wisr is focused on delivering industry-leading digital solutions that exceed borrower expectations.

“The appointment of such a senior professional will deliver an even more engaging experience and pave the way for future digital product innovation,” Mr Nantes said.

Wisr also recently announced that it has become a member of Platform Finance’s consumer lending panel.
