It’s been a busy few months for Wise as we’ve welcomed a number of talented new starters, won our first award, announced our exciting investment partnership with Inflexion. Now, however, we’re kicking 2022 off with the exciting news that we’ve brought in a heavyweight of British business as our new Chairman.
Lance Batchelor, former CEO of Domino’s Pizza and Tesco Mobile, officially joined us as chairman before the Christmas break and adds another layer of experience and technology expertise to our existing leadership team.
The appointment of Lance, who has previously held senior roles within Amazon, SAGA Group and The Royal Navy, is a real coup for the business and something we’re really excited to share. Joining us as we move into the next phase of the Wise journey and rapidly begin to scale up how we support the UK self-employment industry, having Lance onboard to advise as Chairman will be immensely helpful.
Simon Hills, Chief Executive of Wise, said: “I’m thrilled to have brought in Lance as Chairman, and his track record for delivering growth in technology companies will be invaluable to Wise. His appointment highlights our commitment to deliver best-in-class products and services to our clients; we’re excited for 2022 and beyond.”
Lance Batchelor, Chairman of Wise, said: “I feel highly privileged to join this business at such an exciting time. The team has an incredible passion for what they do, and it shines through in the products & services they deliver. I’m really looking forward to helping the team achieve its short and long-term objectives.”
