Flagstone, the UK’s leading Cash Deposit Platform, today announces the addition of two non-executive directors to its Board of Directors. The additions, designed to increase the depth of experience on the board, also reflect the company’s commitment to ensure diversity of thought is encouraged across the organisation.
Leda Glyptis is a former banker, technology executive and founding CEO of 11:FS Foundry. Currently serving as Chief Client Officer at 10x, a cloud-native core banking provider she has also held senior roles at Qatar National Bank, consulting firm Sapient and BNY Mellon.
Meri Williams is a highly accomplished CTO, having led scaling technology organisations including Monzo, MOO, Proctor and Gamble and more recently Healx, and works as a CTO coach and tech advisor to various companies in this capacity through micro-consultancy ChromeRose. A published author and international speaker, she is the chair of The Lead Developer conference, and a tech advisor for Kindred Capital. She’s also a trustee at Stonewall, the UK’s leading LGBTQ+ rights charity.
Flagstone recently successfully completed a funding round partnering with WealthClub and Volution. This funding, together with the expansion of its Board of Directors, will ensure Flagstone is well placed to drive further growth in its business ahead of a planned Series B fundraise round in 2023.
Simon Merchant, CEO and Co-Founder at Flagstone commented:
“2022 is a key year for Flagstone as we not only strengthen our well-developed distribution channels but also embark on international as well as product expansion during this scale up phase of our growth. With recent success securing investment we are able to leverage our strong position within the market including wealth management partnerships, a market-leading banking panel and combine this with the benefits of our continued investment in our tech.
The strength, commitment, and diversity of our team at all levels will be key for us to meet our growth targets. As an organisation we continue to prioritise the development of our team and to value diversity across our business. I am looking forward to working with both Leda and Meri to deliver growth for Flagstone and the best experience for our clients.”
