NorthRow, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) compliance platform, has appointed Adam Holden as its new CEO. 

Founded in 2010, NorthRow helps large and small firms fight against financial crime through its onboarding, ongoing monitoring and remediation solution. 

Holden, who is replacing Adrian Black, who retired from the business in December 2020, joined NorthRow in 2018 as its Chief Financial Officer. Holden has worked across the fintech and traditional financial services industries including at Tandem Bank, Lombard Asset Finance and RBS.

Holden said: "The highly talented team at NorthRow has made exceptional progress and delivered great results under the direction of Adrian Black. Thanks to Adrian’s leadership and vision we now have a strong foundation on which to deliver an ambitious growth trajectory. We have a clear focus on our product roadmap and increased engagement with our diverse customer base. I'm excited to lead the team on the next stage of its strategic development journey.”

Andrew Doyle, Executive Chair of NorthRow, said: “The Board and the Executive team are delighted that Adam has taken up the role of CEO. With his deep financial expertise, combined with his operational experience and strong customer focus we are confident that Adam has the focus, ability and ambition to continue to accelerate NorthRow’s growth.”
