Meet Our Team

Andy Pritchard

Director

Firstly I must say how immensely proud and lucky I am to work with such a fantastic team at Simple Group.

A dedicated and genuinely lovely group of professionals who will fight tooth and nail for their clients whilst forging strong relationships with lenders who trust their judgement and are keen to work with us when needed to get a deal across the line.

My personal history starts with Royal Bank of Scotland straight from School in Tayside in 1985 then up and down the East Coast of both Scotland and England.

A move away from banking in 2000 into the world of IFA followed which saw the small Hull IFA practice I was a Director of being acquired in late 2006 by a large independent Insurance Brokerage known at the time as The Insurance Partnership.

I was privileged to be part of the formation of a financial services group and was part of the management team for the financial services division (IFA) and also a newly formed commercial financial division.

I launched Simple Commercial Finance in November 2009 right into the “teeth” of the credit crunch aligning the business and myself with the National Association of Commercial Finance brokers (NACFB) for whom I was proud to serve as Director between 2010 – 2013.

Simple Home Loans soon followed focussing on the regulated mortgage market and latterly Simple Commercial Finance (Scotland) will focus primarily on the Scottish market.

I am lucky to have Jacqui by my side and 2 fantastic children Lewis & Freya and whilst I would prefer not to mention my football team, they along with cycling, “the gym” and travel just about keep me sane

I finish where I started with a humble and heartfelt thank you to my colleagues but also the hundreds of customers past and present whom we have helped source millions of pounds for in all sorts of circumstances and for the many more we look forward to meeting and helping soon.

Lyndsey Hodgson

Lyndsey has been in full-focused Business and Private Banking for nearly 20 years.

She joined Simple from Handelsbanken in 2020. Before then she worked for Yorkshire Bank in her early career and learned, from both organisations, the intricacies of dealing with high-profile business and the delicacy of dealing with personal clients.

Lyndsey strives to treat everyone with the respect and consideration they deserve using her technical expertise to ensure the deal remains the focus right up until it’s complete. Great service and going the extra mile is at the heart of everything she does

Privately her family is her priority and Lyndsey uses her down time to hit the local beach with her dog! That said, it doesn’t get in the way of a regime of early morning boot camps and fitness training to help maintain her friendly, focussed approach.

Whilst not customer facing he sees the team as his customer base and strives to provide the support they need to fulfil the role of being a first-class financial broking organisation.
