Shawbrook hires ex-Curve and 11:FS exec as first chief product officer
The appointment follows the bank’s plan to create 100 new digital vacancies by the end of 2022.
Shawbrook has hired Arthur Leung as its first chief product officer, as the bank doubles down on its digital strategy.
The newly created role is part of Shawbrook’s plan to scale itself digitally. It recently announced plans to create 100 new digital vacancies by the end of 2022.
In recent months, Shawbrook has launched a number of new digital products and services, enabled by advances in cloud-based serverless architecture, API services, acceptance of Open Banking data and building third-party relationships with partners such as FundingXchange.
Leung, who will be reporting into bank’s CEO Marcelino Castrillo, has previously held roles at Curve, and 11:FS and most recently Advent International where he led the digital product and engineering team.
He also founded an edtech start-up aimed at making learning Chinese more accessible and fun for children.
“Arthur has phenomenal understanding and extensive experience across discovery, execution and scaling of products at different stages of business growth,” Castrillo said.
Shawbrook was founded in 2011 and counts both SMEs and individuals as customers.
