The banking tech provider founded by ex-Barclays group CEO Antony Jenkins has bolstered its executive team with two new appointments.

Dr Leda Glyptis, previously chief of staff at 11:FS, has joined 10x Future Technologies as chief client officer and Mark Holt, formerly chief technology officer at Trainline, has joined as chief product and engineering officer.

These appointments come along with more than 100 new hires by 10x in recent months, predominantly in tech, product and engineering roles.

“They join us at a pivotal and exciting time in the 10x journey,” said Jenkins on the appointment of Glyptis and Holt.

“Their business expertise and experience across and beyond technology will be invaluable in supporting our growth strategy as we support our bank clients with transforming their approach to banking.”

While not appearing in many headlines this year, 10x has been quietly making headway with helping client banks to overhaul their infrastructure. 

Most recently 10x was reported to be supplying JP Morgan with infrastructure for the upcoming UK launch of its digital consumer platform.

Jenkins said the fintech continues to hire both around London, where it’s headquartered, and in Australia where it opened its first office last November and signed on Westpac as a client.

“While the full impact and effect of the pandemic is uncertain, we believe, based on our pipeline of activity that the financial services industry and retail banks in particular are continuing to pursue new digital, cloud-native technology solutions to help them address their ongoing legacy cost and customer delivery challenges,” said Jenkins.
