Commenting on the appointment, Neil said, “I’m thrilled to continue to represent the region in this way, and represent the UK FinTech sector with such a highly respected institution.”
On his appointment, Beckie Hart, CBI Yorkshire and the Humber Director, said: “I am delighted that the CBI will continue to have the opportunity to work with Nostrum, one of the UK’s fastest growing technology businesses. The Leeds City region is a thriving hub for the FinTech industry, a sector that will be at the heart of helping to drive growth across the Northern Powerhouse.
