DirectID grows commercial team
Scottish fintech, DirectID, just announcedÂ seven new hires. The fintech is already present in many markets and with those hires, they are looking to further this expansion. This announcement comes after the firm announced the completion of a $3M bridge funding round led by Hong Kong based venture capital firm QBN Capital.Â Â
Here are some of the new joiners:
Nicholas Tuttelberg - Director of Business Development.
Specialist of credit risk and customer decision management solutions in the Financial, Retail, and Telecommunications industry. Nicholas' last role was at Experian and also worked at TransUnion, Reunert Group, Nedbank, and Standard Bank.
Based in Cape Town, South Africa, he will drive the business growth for Africa.Â
Damiano Cracolici - Director of Business Development.
Damiano is an expert in deploying and enhancing data-driven business processes and solutions across the credit and risk lifecycle. He previously held roles at TransUnion, FICO, and Experian. Cracolici is based in the UK and will take point on DirectIDâ€™s insurance sector clients.Â Â
Betting on future talents
DirectID also hired four sales graduates to their commercial outfit through the IT Technical Sales apprenticeship training programme at Pareto Law. Through Pareto, the team of Business Development Executives will continue to build upon their learning and development, while gaining invaluable hands-on experience in their employment at the rapidly growing fintech.Â
The graduate team will be led by Lee Sansom who also joins the business from Experian, bringing with him over 10 years of experience in business development with B2B SaaS providers.Â
Clare McCaffery, Chief Commercial Officer at DirectID, said:
I am delighted to be joined by such a prestigious group of colleagues. Having worked with both Nick and Damiano previously I know our growing client base will benefit from their vast experience and consultative approach. It is equally an honour to enable the talented BDE team as they start their careers after gaining exceptional academic qualifications. I am sure that under the guidance of Leeâ€™s hands on leadership approach they will help us to expand DirectID across many markets over the next 12 months.Â Â
