Retail finance technology provider Divido has appointed Currencycloud executive Todd Latham to the role of chief executive officer.
Joining the London-based fintech in April, Latham will take over from Neha Mittal, who will continue as chief operating officer.
Latham joins Divido, whose whitelabel buy now, pay later platform connects lenders, merchants and partners at the point of sale, less than a year on from its $30 million series B funding round led by ING and HSBC.
He spent more than eight years at Currencycloud, most recently serving as chief growth officer. Divido highlights his role in helping the company to expand from 20 to nearly 500 people and become one the UK’s most successful fintechs.
Latham has also held senior positions at American Express and Microsoft.
Commenting on the new appointment, Divido chairman Renier Lemmens says: “We are thrilled to have a person of Todd’s calibre join the team. His deep payments expertise coupled with a strong focus on customers and employees make him ideal to lead the next phase of Divido’s growth story.”
“I would also like to pay tribute to Neha Mittal and the work she has done as interim CEO, which provides the perfect platform upon which to build.”
