Selina Finance appoints new VP of growth to spearhead broker roll-out

02-Sep-2019

Digital secured lender, Selina Finance, today announced it has appointed Darvish Heshejin as its new VP of growth.

In his new role, Darvish will oversee a team of five, responsible for building and maintaining relationships with brokers and other intermediaries, broadening Selina’s vertical and strategic partnerships, and strengthening the lender’s online presence.

Darvish has over 10 years’ experience working in financial services, and he joins the digital secured lender from MarketInvoice, where he was national head of sales for CID, the platform’s digital confidential invoice discounting product.

He will be based in Selina’s HQ in London, and will work closely alongside Michael Biemann, founder and CEO.

Michael commented: “We are thrilled that Darvish is joining Selina Finance at a time of such rapid growth. Darvish’s appointment reflects our ambitious plans to keep growing and it’s fantastic to have someone with his experience pulling from the front. Darvish boasts a wealth of experience in financial services, having built teams that have established and maintained countless relationships with intermediaries over the past decade. We’re confident he can help us get the message to the market that there is something completely new happening within secured lending, that a flexible option is available for borrowers unlike anything else out there.”

Darvish added: “It’s very exciting to be joining Selina Finance at this early stage in its journey and I’m looking forward to building out the team and driving growth across all go-to-market channels. Selina launched three months ago and in that time has entered the secured lending market with a unique product that offers customers both speed and flexibility, and this is just the beginning. Helping to build and establish an innovative digital financial services company has always been an ambition of mine so I’m grateful to be given this opportunity by Michael and the team, and can’t wait to get started.”
