Relendex, the peer-to-peer property lending platform, is gearing up to appoint a new CEO “within a few months” with its new chief investment officer lined up for the role.

Last week it was announced that Anthony Shayle had joined the business as CIO, coming from UBS in the Asset Management Division as head of real estate debt (EMEA).

At the time Relendex said: “It is anticipated that he will step up into the role of Chief Executive Officer within a few months.”

Yesterday the business also appointed Aaron de Silva as director of sales, previously head of business development at PLS Solicitors and in residential development at Knight Frank, reporting into Shayle in his new role.

Relendex’s executive chairman Paul Sonabend, who took over executive duties as founder and former CEO Michael Lynn is stepping into the role of president, said:

“We are delighted that Aaron has joined Relendex and are confident that he will build excellent long-term relationships with regional house-builders. He will play an integral role in bringing Relendex’s proposition to the house-building sector.”

Sonabend’s comments on the house-building sector echo those he made last week on Shayle’s appointment.
