Cecilia Mourain appointed Managing Director of Moneybox Mortgages

Moneybox Mortgages is a free service that takes aspiring first-time buyers from their first steps to their doorstep, by helping them save for a mortgage deposit, find and secure the right mortgage for their needs, and ongoing support from a dedicated case manager until they complete on their property. A team of experienced mortgage brokers and case managers are on hand at every stage of a customer’s journey alleviating much of the administrative burden in what can be a very stressful and time-consuming process. This service is also available for free to ‘next time buyers’ and those looking to remortgage, with all customers able to generate a “Mortgage in Principle”, apply for a mortgage, and track their progress, all within the Moneybox app.

Cecilia started her career as a strategy consultant at Simon-Kucher & Partners, where she specialised in revenue growth for digital businesses. She has since held leadership roles with Paddy Power Betfair across strategy, product, and commercial, and was instrumental in leading the expansion of Betfair in Latin America. Most recently, Cecilia held the position of VP Revenue Strategy & Operations at WorldRemit, a leading cross-border payments fintech headquartered in London.

Charlie Mortimer, co-founder of Moneybox, commented:

“Moneybox has emerged as the biggest provider of Lifetime ISAs in the UK, accounting for more than 50 per cent of new LISAs opened last year. In this time, we have also supported thousands of mortgage-specific queries from our customers, illustrating the need for expert advice and support to be made available to people at every stage of their home-buying journey.  Cecilia brings a breadth of senior management experience to the business and is truly passionate about making homeownership more accessible and less stressful for all. Her commitment to delivering outstanding customer service made her the ideal candidate to lead Moneybox Mortgages ”

Speaking of her appointment Cecilia Mourain said:

“I am thrilled to take the reins of the Moneybox homebuying proposition to work alongside a very talented and motivated team who genuinely care about their customers and supporting them to achieve their goals. Moneybox exists to help people build wealth with confidence and for many people buying a home is a significant part of that journey. While mortgage brokers have long existed to help people find the best terms for their loans, that is no longer enough. A large proportion of adults in the UK still see buying a house as one of the more stressful experiences of modern life. Moneybox Mortgages will help take the stress out of homebuying for free, by coordinating all the administrative tasks between the solicitors, lenders, and estate agents and keeping the customers updated every step of the way. The outstanding reviews the team has received on Trustpilot since its launch is a testament to the exceptional value this service gives to our customers. ”
