zigluUK-based challenger Ziglu today announced the appointment of James Sullivan as its Chief Legal Officer. The new hire will be responsible for growing the team, supporting and protecting the business in its product growth and international expansions.

Recently, Ziglu announced the opening of their crowdfunding round to the public, which is currently 300% funded, at just over £3 million from over 1,100 investors. The FCA-authorised e-money institution aimed to raise £1 million in a bid to expand its technology and product development teams, speed up growth and strengthen its market position.

Commenting on his appointment, James Sullivan said, “It was always going to take an exceptionally exciting opportunity to move on from Monzo. In the last few months, Ziglu has launched its exchange and payments app, been licensed by the FCA and is knocking it out of the park with its first crowdfunding on Seedrs. It’s been an impressive journey in just a few months. I’m incredibly excited to be joining the Ziglu team as the business enters its high growth phase and starts to target international expansion.” Previously, Sullivan was the Head of Legal and Acting Company Secretary at Monzo.

Mark Hipperson, Chief Executive Officer at Ziglu said, “I am delighted to welcome James Sullivan to the Ziglu leadership team. He brings a wealth of experience in transformational fintech and will be integral to our international growth. James will be a great addition at Ziglu and we welcome him to the incredibly talented team.”
