We are committed to continuous investment in our unique technology platform, and Aris joining the business further enhances our software development capabilities and will allow us to deliver the next stage of our technology strategy.

“He brings a wealth of experience in technology, leadership and development and I am looking forward to working with him to enhance our origination systems and further streamline our customer experience.”
