White Clarke Group, the leading, global provider of loan origination and servicing software solutions, announced today that Nick Ockwell has joined the group as Executive Vice President of Operations for the Americas.
The strategic addition of Ockwell to the leadership team is another move confirming White Clarke Group’s commitment and increased focus on serving their clients and partners in North America. Ockwell has a long track record of successful technology and operations leadership in financial services with companies including Ally Financial Services – Latin America and Exeter Finance Corp. Both lenders are well known for their innovative specialty lending and use of best-in-class solutions.
The announcement comes less than a year after Five Arrows Principal Investments, the corporate private equity business of Rothschild & Co, made a significant equity investment in the group with the intent to scale the business globally.
Brendan Gleeson, Group CEO, said of the appointment, “Our reputation for providing the highest standards of delivery and ongoing support to our clients is one we are committed to uphold. During this time of expansion, our operations and technology must be at optimal performance. Nick has proven his talent for preparing and scaling operations, and we are lucky to have him on the team for our next phase of growth.”
Ockwell added, “As a former White Clarke Group client, I have watched the impressive evolution from their roots as innovators and consultants, to global leaders in developing platforms that deliver the highest degrees of loan origination, servicing and wholesale finance performance for the top financial services companies in the world. I’m excited and honored to play a part in the next chapter of the White Clarke Group history.”
