Richard Hurst has joined Bill Safran at Vizolution as its marketing director to help grow the company and expand into new markets.
Richard has been in the mortgage industry for almost twenty years and joins Vizolution with immediate effect. This is not the first time they have worked together; Richard Hurst worked with Bill Safran for many years at Trigold when Bill was CEO and together they helped to build Trigold into the leading sourcing system in the UK and a household name for mortgage intermediaries.
Richard will now help Vizolution to grow further within the financial service sector and expand into new markets including pharmaceuticals, telephone companies and utilities both in the UK and abroad.
Bill Safran, CEO of Vizolution, said “I worked with Richard for over ten years at Trigold and so I’m delighted that he has agreed to join us at Vizolution. He is a hugely effective, strategic marketer who will make a very real difference to the company. Vizolution is growing rapidly; we are already working with most of the leading banks and insurance companies and Richard will help us to accelerate that growth still further, both in financial services and taking us into new markets.”
Richard Hurst says, “It is great to join Bill again after several years of working in different companies. Vizolution is an ambitious company and has a great product in vScreen which is going to transform the way that firms interact with their customers. vScreen will play a hugely valuable role in the implementation of the MMR, providing solutions to a number of issues that the new rules will create. It is very exciting to look at how the versatility of the system enables it to be used in a variety of markets and environments.”
This is the third key appointment that Vizolution has made this summer, following the appointment of a customer proposition director in June and a business development director in July.
