Big news! Meet our new Chief Technology Officer, Adam Jones

Hot off the heels of other recent announcements, please join me in welcoming Adam Jones to our executive team as Seccl’s Chief Technology Officer!

This comes just weeks after we welcomed Kirsty Lynagh to the team as Chief People Officer, and saw Farzana Khalil take the position of Chief Customer Officer.

Starting later this year, Adam will be responsible for shaping our future technology vision, with executive accountability for all aspects of our engineering function.

He joins us from investment consultancy firm Redington – whose mission is to help make 100m people more financially secure – where he served as CTO and Executive Director, in addition to being Managing Director of Ada Fintech, the firm’s award-winning portfolio management, research and governance platform.

Before this, Adam spent five years at Altus (most recently as Head of Innovation), and two years as a Business Analyst and Solution Architect at FNZ.

Driving innovation and financial inclusion

Adam serves as an Advisery Board Member for the Department of Accounting, Economics and Finance at the University of West of England, and a Trustee at financial education organisation, RedSTART. By teaching 1 million people how to save, budget and invest by 2025, the programme works to educate and empower young people to help them feel more confident and in control of their financial future.

As well as being a thought leader with a proven track record for driving innovation within our market, Adam is also a fantastic team leader with an infectious belief in the role that technology can play in empowering financial inclusion. He will be instrumental in helping us extend our competitive advantage and deliver on the growing market interest in what we’re building.

“Investment platforms can and should be game-changing for consumers and wealth businesses alike”

I, for one, am really excited to start working with him. Here’s what Adam has to say about his upcoming role:

“I am thrilled to be joining the team at Seccl. Having started to get to know the business, it is clear to me that Seccl represents the change this industry needs – and is in a position to capitalise on its fantastic people, market leading technology, and forward-thinking customer base.

Investment platforms can and should be game-changing for consumers and wealth businesses alike, but all too often legacy tech or cumbersome change programmes lead to their value being diluted or lost altogether. I’ve spent most of my career trying to get better outcomes for retail investors by improving the infrastructure of our industry, and I’m excited to bring my experience of growing and scaling awesome development teams and technology platforms to the firm. I can’t wait to get started.”

We hope you’ll join us in welcoming Adam to the team! If you have any questions about any of our recent leadership changes, or about Seccl in general, please feel free to get in touch.
