The incoming CTO will help Crowdcube expand across Europe and support the growth of its recent launches, Cubex and Community IPO.
The go-to fintech funding platform has appointed David Halsey, Moneysupermarket’s former chief information officer, as its CTO.
Halsey will help Crowdcube navigate its growth strategy and help the platform realise its international expansion plans as it looks to put down roots across Europe.
“What really appeals is the true product innovation that Crowdcube is bringing to retail investment - the idea that you sign up to one platform for an investing experience throughout a company’s lifecycle,” the incoming CTO said.
“I’m excited to bring my experience of building marketplaces to Crowdcube as it scales to become the European marketplace for investment in companies from startup to IPO.”
Halsey brings more than two decades of technology experience with him, including a 12-year-stint at HMRC in a variety of roles.
“This is where David comes in. With his wealth of experience in building and scaling marketplaces at Moneysupermarket and ebay, we’re incredibly excited to welcome him to the team.”
