The ClearScore Group, a global financial services marketplaces group, has appointed Brian Cole as Group CFO, effective immediately. A financial services executive, Cole has held senior leadership roles at Capital One, Barclays, and Visa.

Now in its ninth year and with 20 million users around the world, The ClearScore Group has expanded to include several data-driven online marketplaces, retailing financial services products, and serving people across four continents.

Cole’s appointment bolsters the strong senior management team and his depth of experience in lending will set The ClearScore Group up for continued diversification and growth on an international scale.

Justin Basini, Group CEO, and Co-founder said, “I am thrilled that Brian has decided to join us at this exciting time in our journey to becoming a globally recognised, diversified, online marketplace business helping people improve their financial well-being.

I look forward to working with Justin and the team in delivering ClearScore’s mission of making personal finance clearer, calmer, and easier to understand at scale around the world.”

While CFO of Capital One, Cole steered the business successfully through the Great Recession and as CEO brought it back to growth in the years thereafter. Later, he served as CEO of Barclaycard Consumer.
