Listed FinTech Funding Circle has poached the CFO from Vanquis Bank.

The lending platform for SMEs has moved to appoint Oliver White, with Sean Gilberto set to step down later this year.

White has served as CFO at Vanquis – the credit card unit of Provident Financial Group – for three years.

“On behalf of all at Funding Circle, I would like to thank Sean for his significant contribution since joining us in 2017,” said CEO Samir Desai.

“He has been an integral member of the team and someone I have always enjoyed working alongside. We wish him all the best for the future.

“In Oliver, we have the right successor to help support us in the next phase of our journey. Oliver has a proven track record and deep understanding of growing an international loan provider and I look forward to him joining.”

Glithero said: “It has been an enormous privilege to have worked alongside so many talented people here at Funding Circle.

“I am leaving to take a break and I continue to remain a strong supporter of Funding Circle and its mission.”
