Vida, the specialist mortgage lender, has today announced the appointment of Mark Price as its new Director of Credit Risk. Mark has extensive experience in credit risk and credit underwriting and is responsible for enhancing Vida’s overall credit governance and the approval experience of intermediaries and borrowers across its range of innovative and flexible Buy to Let (BTL) and residential products.
Mark brings over 20 years of broad financial services experience to the role, having been at Metro Bank for the past 10 years with his most recent position being Chief Credit Officer/Director of Commercial Credit. Prior to Metro Bank, Mark held senior executive customer-facing and distribution roles at Barclays Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland and NatWest meaning he understands the need to deliver a balanced approach to making the right decisions, quickly, for Vida customers.
