Short-term lender Amicus has recruited Matthew Anderson and Nigel Alexander from Fincorp as regional directors.
They will take up their roles in the new year.
Anderson said: “The decision to leave Fincorp was a difficult one after 12 great years. I will remain a close friend with Ronnie but Nigel and I both see the opportunity that the Amicus Group expansion plans offer us as too good a career move to miss.”
Keith Aldridge, managing director of Amicus, said: “These two appointments further reinforce the group’s commitment to be a leading growth force in the short-term lending market.
“We are delighted that we have been able to convince two stalwarts of the sector who have over 60 years lending experience between them that they will play a vital role in our expansion plans.”
Alexander added: “The potential that Amicus has to grow its business now that it has such strong funding lines and a reputation for being the lender that others always keep in their sights was a temptation too hard to resist.
“Both Matthew and I are really looking forward to working with Keith and the team and contributing to the continued growth and diversification plans of the Amicus Group in 2016.”
