The fintech mortgage lender Generation Home has appointed Pete Dockar as Commercial Director. He joins from Virgin Money, where he was Head of Customer Value. Pete will be responsible for Generation Home’s commercial proposition and product evolution, driving growth in the lending business. Recognising the important role that brokers play in the home-buying journey, one of his main missions is to grow and cement key broker relationships.

Prior to that he spent nearly 12 years at HSBC in various senior leadership roles including time as Head of Retail Underwriting for Europe, and UK Head of Mortgages. He brings an extensive and successful track-record of creating innovative lending and customer propositions that drive growth and financial inclusion.
Pete is Generation Home’s first Commercial Director, and the latest in a string of senior hires for the lender that introduced “deposit booster” and “income booster” products to the sector for the first time, when it opened for business 18 months ago . He joins Generation Home’s dynamic and growing team in London, and reports into Chief Commercial Officer, Graham McClelland.
Will Rice, CEO and Founder, Generation Home says: “Pete has an outstanding track record of driving growth and success in his previous roles. His buyer-first ethos mirrors that of Generation Home, making him an incredibly exciting hire. We’re delighted to have him onboard.”
