Chetwood Financial (“Chetwood”) announced the appointment of Adrian Gurnell as Chief Information Officer. Adrian will oversee the IT service engineering and delivery at Chetwood to introduce and mature core capabilities and processes to support growth in this new role.

This will include a focus on strengthening DevOps and automation to facilitate delivery across multiple product portfolios, extending the firm’s credit decisioning scale, accelerating the introduction of new products, and developing platform banking services.

Based in Wrexham, Adrian joins from DivideBuy, the interest-free credit provider, where he was Chief Technology Officer accountable for technology delivery and services. Before this, he led large scale transformation initiatives at First Data, the FCA and Barclays.

Chetwood Financial is a digital bank that was granted a full UK banking license in 2018, the only retail bank to obtain a license that year. Unlike traditional banks, they’re not looking to build a customer base and then cross-sell to them. Instead, they’re focused on serving distinct customer segments currently underserved by the market, with innovative products designed specifically for their needs.

Andy Mielczarek, CEO of Chetwood, said, “We are delighted to welcome Adrian to the Chetwood team. With extensive experience leading technology change across multiple industry sectors and particularly within Financial Services, we believe his ability to use technology to create commercial advantage and drive exceptional performance will be invaluable as we continue to grow the business.”

Adrian Gurnell said: “Chetwood is a dynamic and innovative digital bank, and I am excited to support its mission of making people financially better off. I am passionate about using technology to create opportunities and enable Chetwood to offer products better suited to individual customer needs. By focusing on customer proposition, credit decisioning, delivery assurance and ease of servicing, we will continue to drive exceptional performance.”
