Kimber, who joined the company in November 2023 as chief operating officer, has over two decades of experience in banking and finance.

His career highlights include holding the managing director position at CHL Mortgages for Intermediaries, where he led the company’s return to lending in 2021. He also became chief operating officer at both CHL Mortgages and Landmark Mortgages, and led the lending function at Castle Trust.

Kimber’s appointment follows a comprehensive selection process by Molo’s board and advisors, which recognised his contributions to various financial institutions and his understanding of the UK origination market.

“We sought a CEO who not only understands the intricacies of our industry but also embodies innovation and determination,” stated Andrew Chepul (pictured right), executive chairman of Molo. “The calibre of candidates in the recruitment process was impressive, and Matthew stood out among them. We believe his leadership will drive Molo in its next phase of growth and maximise the company’s full potential.”

Commenting on his appointment, Kimber expressed enthusiasm about leading Molo during a transformative period for the mortgage industry.

“Taking on the role as Molo’s CEO, at such a pivotal time, is a tremendous honour,” he said. “The mortgage landscape is evolving rapidly, and Molo is at the forefront of that transformation. I am eager to lead the Molo team in delivering excellent mortgage products for our customers, pushing boundaries, and solidifying Molo's position as a pioneer in the industry.”
