Online wealth manager Tiller has expanded its team with a raft of senior hires to support the company’s ambitious growth plans. John Bennett joins as Head of Business Development and Mark Cadby as Chief Technology Officer.
Launched in July 2018, Tiller is an online wealth manager that combines super-intelligent technology with world class wealth managers and proactive portfolio management. Tiller is a leap forward from entry-level online investment platforms, offering more choice and control alongside a premium user experience. The appointments will drive Tiller’s next phase of growth and are part of a wider investment programme of new talent at the company.
Bennett has over 25 years’ experience working in sales & business development roles. Prior to joining Tiller, John was a partner at risk management start up, QLAB Invest AG, a quantitative multi-asset index provider. Prior to that, John was UK Head of Alternative Funds Distribution at USB Bank. He also previously spent 10 years as Head of UK Distribution at Man Investments from 2000 to 2010.
Cadby has over 30 years’ experience in the IT industry working in both Project Management and IT Management roles for international financial institutions, software houses and as an independent consultant. He led the transformation of an in-house product into a marketable external systems product offering for Ermitage Group and was responsible for a number of large application integrations for Standard Bank (Jersey) Limited
Ian Cadby, Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder of Tiller, says: “At Tiller we are building a world class team of experienced, passionate people who share our ambitions to build the next generation online wealth manager. We think of ourselves as a team of professionals experienced in wealth management who have embraced technology rather than technologists who have seen an opportunity in the wealth management industry. There has been encouraging feedback from investors and institutions since our launch in July. We are confident that we have assembled a team with the talent to build on this momentum and establish ourselves as the most advanced online wealth manager in Europe.”
Tiller has also appointed Hamish Haddow as Head of Marketing and Marcus Dutton as Product & Innovation Director. Hamish joins Tiller from Hargreaves Lansdown, where he worked across channels generating leads and accounts, while Marcus joins from DMS Bank & Trust, where he was head of card services.
