Platform has appointed Piero Bassu as head of credit risk within the company’s risk and compliance department.
Reporting directly into Platform’s director of risk and compliance Alexia Antoniou, Bassu is tasked with managing the credit risk team responsible for supporting the business strategy and ensuring Platform’s risk appetite is reflected in business activities.
Bassu worked at Platform for two years within the credit scoring team both as a credit scoring manager and as a senior credit analyst before taking a one year sabbatical to travel the world and work on a number of charity initiatives.
Antoniou says: “We are delighted to welcome Piero back to the credit risk team. Current market conditions have underlined the ongoing importance of a prudent and sensible approach to credit practice and we are therefore pleased to be able to bolster our team with this appointment. Piero brings with him a wealth of specialist knowledge to this key role and I look forward to working with him over the coming months to strengthen our proposition further.”
