Moneyhub boosts team with senior hires

  • Huge growth in 2019 due to significant demand from enterprise clients
  • Open Finance will see Moneyhub expand to broad industry sectors
  • Moneyhub sales team more than doubles in size
  • 2020 sees opportunities increase further as businesses push forward digital plans to better service clients and customers during Covid-19 pandemic

Moneyhub, the Open Finance platform, has hired further industry expertise to focus on sales and new opportunities in 2020. Following a year that saw Moneyhub’s new business grow significantly, the business has doubled in size.  Today’s new hires – Vaughan Jenkins, Suzanne Homewood and Matt Swinburne-Johnson have been appointed to focus on helping to drive further growth against that demand.

Vaughan Jenkins, previously a member of Moneyhub’s Advisory Board, joins the business as Sales Director.  In this newly created role, he will be responsible for leading the sales operation. Vaughan has extensive experience in financial and customer facing technology having held senior roles at a number of financial services and consultancy firms including PA Consulting. Vaughan was the lead Partner in the FCA’s Project Innovate, the Regulatory Sandbox and RegTechSprint and also worked on the UK Financial Capability strategy, PSD2 implementation and regulated advice projects.

Matt Swinburne-Johnson joins as a Client Director from financial planning solutions provider eValue where he was Business Development Director following a successful Product Development role. Through his time at eValue Matt brings with him exceptional hands on experience in holistic financial planning, employee benefits and the changing nature of work. Matt will help build on the already successful wins in the EBC and Pensions space to offer financial services firms the data they need to create lasting relationships with their clients and customers through a truly tailored experience.

Suzanne Homewood joins Moneyhub as Enterprise Sales Director following four years leading B2B and Strategic Partnerships at Samsung Electronics. Before joining Samsung, Suzanne held a number of roles at British mobile network operator EE. Suzanne’s remit will be to look beyond financial services to other sectors that could benefit from the evolution of Open Finance. With many companies across multiple industries looking to increase brand loyalty and talk to their customers differently, data-driven insights are set to be game changing.

Vaughan Jenkins, Sales Director at Moneyhub comments: “Having watched Moneyhub already successfully lead in this new market, I am looking forward to joining the team on the ground to help accelerate new business opportunities.  My aim is to reach more enterprises and allow them to benefit from the Open Finance revolution and the capabilities Moneyhub unlocks for their propositions. It’s an incredibly exciting time to be at Moneyhub and the purpose of our new team will be to build on the momentum that has already been achieved.

Recent regulatory reforms such as GDPR and Open Banking have enabled consumers to gain better control of their data and Moneyhub enables them to use it for their benefit. Moneyhub’s combination of deep customer understanding and data-driven nudge architecture not only drives exceptional customer engagement but does so with better outcomes for our business clients.”

Dan Scholey, COO of Moneyhub comments: “We’re thrilled to have industry experts Vaughan, Matt and Suzanne join our team as we continue to delight our clients and change the financial lives of consumers for the better. They each bring a unique skill set which will complement the existing talent across the Moneyhub team and will be vital in our next stages of growth.

While many in the financial services industry are only just getting their heads around Open Banking, we are helping leading firms to explore the potential of Open Finance for them and their customers. I truly believe that now, more than ever, the potential of Open Finance will start to be realised and that soon every business will have financial services “built in” and will benefit from holistic data insights as a way to fully engage with their end-customer.

2020 is already presenting a number of challenges for consumers and in order to better service their customers/clients during the pandemic many businesses are bringing forward their digital plans. With an expanded team we can better support these plans to ensure that even more people can have simple, effective and easily accessible control and visibility over their finances.”
