Innovate Finance's founding CEO Claire Cockerton is handing the reigns over to Lawrence Wintermeyer. Wintermeyer brings over 20 years of financial technology experience, both at the seed-stage and growth-stage level. Wintermeyer seems to be well positioned to help scale the organization and increase the membership base across the UK.
Wintermeyer succeeds Innovate Finance founding CEO Claire Cockerton, who will resume her leadership at Entiq (formerly Pivotal Innovations) – the consultancy that led the design, development and launch of Innovate Finance. She will continue to be involved with Innovate Finance in a global ambassadorial capacity. Alastair Lukies, Non-Executive Chairman of Innovate Finance said: ‘Thanks to Claire and the team, Innovate Finance has built great momentum through its launch phase and thanks go to Claire for her energy, drive and ambition. Lawrence is a seasoned, international executive with great insights into the FinTech space from an investment, strategy and delivery perspective and will help to support the organisation as it grows in size and influence. ‘
