 ThinCats has appointed Amany Attia as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Attia most recently ran The Northview Group, a UK mortgage lender and servicer with more than £10 billion in balance sheet and serviced assets. Previously she ran Lehman Brothers’ securitisation business in Europe from 2001 to the banks collapse on the eve of the financial crisis in 2008. 

ThinCats departing John Mould, who has run the platform since 2015 said: "I am very proud to have led ThinCats over the last four years and taken it from a small P2P SME lender to a fast-growing national SME lender whose name now is known across the UK. I leave a great team behind me and I wish Amany every success in the future as the company continues to grow."

Over the past four years ThinCats says it has achieved year-on-year new lending growth in excess of 100% thanks to its strong UK wide regional presence, supported by a customer-based culture and a unique data analytics model.
