Pension and investment consultancy Isio has appointed its first permanent CTO, Matt Glover. He succeeds Jeremy Warren on an interim basis.
In recent months, Isio has expanded its operations to the UK. Isio, resulting from a management buyout of KPMG’s retirement practice, started as an independent consulting firm in early 2020. Starting life with over 1,000 clients, ranging from mid-sized companies at FTSE 100, Isio is committed to both expanding its offices and recruiting in 2021..
As the company looks to continue to grow, Matt Glover has been named the new CTO. A seasoned IT and change leader with 20 years of experience in financial services, he will lead the technology and development teams of Isio and be responsible for the IT strategy and change portfolio of Isio.
Glover said, “Isio is at an exciting stage in its journey and I look forward to working with the extremely talented team of technical experts to ensure that our technology platform can grow and evolve with the business. There have been some impressive innovations to date and a real opportunity to continue to drive change in the industry. ”
Glover comes to Isio from Unity Trust Bank, after having worked for Al Rayan Bank and NatWest. He succeeds Jeremy Warren, who has served as interim CTO since Isio opened in 2020.
Warren planned and executed the IT strategy for the launch of the business, including keeping 550 colleagues connected during the pandemic and developing Isio’s strategy in the cloud first. Andrew Coles, CEO of Isio, thanked Warren for this work, which “has put us in great shape for the future”.
Speaking of Glover, he added, “Matt brings a wealth of experience and is uniquely positioned to drive our digital innovation and market development forward. Our national network now spans eight regional offices and Matt will lead our internal team to ensure that our strategy and infrastructure can support our rapidly growing business.
