Exizent, the technology firm whose innovative platform is transforming bereavement by connecting legal services firms with banks and the wider financial services community, has announced the exciting appointment of Graeme Jones as a Senior Adviser to the Board.
Jones brings invaluable insight as a champion of the Scottish financial services industry, with decades of senior management experience within some of the UK’s leading financial institutions and extensive strategic experience in FCA regulated businesses. Until December 2020 he was Chief Executive of Scottish Financial Enterprise (SFE), the representative body for Scotland’s financial services industry. During his time at SFE he made a substantial impact promoting awareness of and support for financial services companies with a presence in Scotland; Scotland being second only to London in the UK. One of Graeme’s key initiatives whilst at SFE was as a key mover in the creation of FinTech Scotland, widely seen internationally as a benchmark cluster of financial services technology innovation.
Jones has previously worked for some of the UK’s largest financial services businesses, mostly in marketing and sales roles. Prior to joining SFE he was Senior Partner (Banking and Financial Services) at Experian plc, and has also held roles including Head of Distribution at insurance giant Aviva, Head of Regulated Sales at RBS Group, and Senior Manager of Strategy and Operations at Standard Life.
Since retiring from full-time CEO of SFE Jones has been working with the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) as their UK Strategic Relationship Adviser. He is a graduate of Aberdeen University, an Associate of the Chartered Insurance Institute and a Chartered Insurer.
