UK-based Moneyhub is looking to build on increasing interest in its open finance solutions with the appointments of a product owner and marketing director and payments specialist.
Former Starling Bank executive Adam Dowdeswell has joined Moneyhub as product owner, charged with overseeing expansion of its white-labelled open finance platform and data and payment APIs.
The Moneyhub platform opens up previously siloed aspects of financial services data such as mortgages, consumer credit, investments, loans, savings and pensions, and provides a holistic view on financial assets.
The entire platform is available as a white-labelled solution, or businesses can integrate APIs such as account aggregation services into their own systems and technology. Moneyhub currently counts Lloyds Banking Group and Nationwide Building Society as clients.
Dowdeswell is well placed to aid Moneyhub with its expansion. He held a product manager role at UK digital bank Starling, where he worked with new and emerging technology to create valuable and effective solutions for its customers. He also worked with medtech firm Open Bionics to help scale the business and launch the world’s first 3D-printed, medically approved bionic arm.
New Moneyhub marketing director and payments specialist Ingrid Anusic helps technology companies to grow by focusing on lead generation, employee engagement, and branding.
Anusic led the marketing strategy on US payment gateway NMI’s acquisition of Creditcall, and oversaw employee engagement and corporate social responsibility. She has also held roles at Sparkol, Informa and Siemens.
Their appointments follow the expansion of Moneyhub’s sales team earlier this year, and the additions of a system administrator, data scientist, two further software developers, and an account manager.
Commenting on the new appointments, Dan Scholey, chief operating officer at Moneyhub, said: “Both Adam and Ingrid bring the experience and drive required to help scaling businesses. Their skill sets will further strengthen our team as we continue to innovate and grow. It’s an unusual time for anyone to be starting a new role but we’re pleased to be welcoming so many new faces to the team—even if we can just see them through video!”
He continued: “2019 was a bumper year for Moneyhub where we saw interest from enterprise clients in both our white labelled Open Finance platform and our data and payment APIs. With the lockdown bringing home to many companies the importance of engaging with customers in a way that meets their needs and expectations, 2020 is shaping up to be another busy year for our growing team.”
