Mortgage analytics and AI company DAIDEC Analytics (DAIDEC) has confirmed that Citi’s former global solutions sales specialist Denham Martil has joined the company in a newly appointed senior business development manager (BDM) role.
Mr Martil commenced his new role on 23 September and is tasked with increasing the company’s ability to bring its machine learning analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) modelling to mortgage lending and broking businesses with the aim of accelerating decision-making, and enabling them to “unlock their potential, innovate and gain competitive advantage”.
According to the fintech, Mr Martil’s appointment further “strengthen[s] DAIDEC’s leadership team” and aims to help “drive broader expansion of its customer and partner base”.
Mr Martil brings more than 18 years of business and banking experience to the role, with his most recent position being global solutions sales at Citi.
Prior to his time at Citi, Mr Martil worked with a range of multinational and Australian organisations, including as the head of business with AlphaCommerceHub. He was also previously the director, global treasury services at Bank of America, and was the associate director, senior business development manager for global transactional banking at Westpac Institutional Bank.
Speaking of Mr Martil’s appointment, DAIDEC chief executive Roger Dench said: “Denham Martil is a proven global business development executive who has a unique understanding of how [software as a service] technology and process efficiency fit best to meet the needs of our customers both here, and as we work towards entering overseas markets.
“Mr Martil is strategic in his outlook and view of customer engagement and this, combined with his consultative approach, [mean] he was an excellent choice to be representing DAIDEC in the marketplace,” Mr Dench added.
Mr Martil said that his transition from corporate banking to a start-up was “a considerable step”, but added that he couldn’t ignore an opportunity to be directly involved with “commercialising such a significant solution aimed at enhancing the quality of the mortgage industry”.
“I am looking forward to showcasing the value that DAIDEC can bring to the market as a whole,” he concluded.
