All change at FinTech Scotland



FinTech Scotland has today announced leadership changes with Stephen Ingledew stepping up to the role of executive chair.

David Ferguson, the current non-executive chair, will step down from the role he has held for more than two years.

Over the coming months, FinTech Scotland will start the process of appointing a new chief executive to take over from Stephen and it anticipates being in a position to complete the process by the end of the year.

From early November, Nicola Anderson, the current strategic development director of FinTech Scotland, will take on the role of acting chief executive.

Anderson has been on full time secondment with FinTech Scotland from the Financial Conduct Authority for two years and the organisation said she had played a significant role with Ingledew, marketing director Mickael Paris and executive assistant Shery Johnston in supporting the fintech SME community and the rapid progress of fintech initiatives.

In addition, to his role of executive chairman for FinTech Scotland, Stephen Ingledew will take on a part time secondment to Scottish Enterprise as an interim director for six months from November.

He will report to Linda Hanna, managing director of Scottish Enterprise, and will contribute to the development of future strategic opportunities to support economic recovery.

In addition, Ingledew has recently been appointed to the newly formed UK Government Innovation Expert Group set up to advise on driving productivity through innovation.

Ingledew said “ It has been a privilege to lead FinTech Scotland and deliver significant milestones across the fintech cluster. This is the right time to further strengthen further the leadership team.

“I look forward to working with the Scottish Enterprise team to accelerate and shape strategic programmes, sharing my experience of developing clusters to drive inclusive innovation and economic opportunities”.

David Ferguson, who is the chief executive of Nucleus Financial said: “It’s been hugely interesting seeing FinTech Scotland come into being and to see Stephen do such a great job of generating momentum over the last couple of years.

“I’m grateful to everyone who has joined in and helped carry us to the point where things are so well set up for the next phase”
