Fluent Money Group has appointed Garry Taylor as chief technology officer (CTO).
Taylor (pictured), who has been at Fluent Money since its inception, also worked with its founding directors at LoanMakers from 2006 until 2008. Prior to Loanmakers, he was a lecturer, teaching programming and Linux OS courses to adult learners and other lecturers.
He is tasked with managing the next stages of development of Fluent Money’s IT system.
Tim Wheeldon, Fluent Money’s COO, said: “Garry has been with us from the start and has been instrumental in designing and implementing much of our IT infrastructure since we launched. The service we offer centres around our proposition and the quality and enthusiasm of our human team. However, behind that service has been an IT structure that has grown to accommodate every demand we have placed on it.
“No one knows and understands our systems as well as Garry and we have every confidence that under his leadership, Fluent will remain at the forefront of IT implementation in our industry and further enhance our reputation as the UK’s number 1 provider of second charge mortgages.”
Taylor added: “I’m really excited to be in a position to make some serious progress with our team and the systems we produce. Fluent Money and its adviser facing division, Fluent for Advisers, are constantly seeking to improve their proposition to customers.
“My job is to ensure that our people, our partners and their customers have a seamless and fully functional on and offline service, which simply makes their lives easier and complements the service we offer. I am looking forward to the challenge.”
