Pensions and investment consultancy Isio has appointed its first permanent Chief Technology Officer Matt Glover. He takes over from interim Jeremy Warren.

In recent months, Isio has been expanding its UK operations. Formed from a management buyout of KPMG’s pensions practice, Isio launched as an independent consulting firm in early 2020. Starting life with more than 1,000 clients, ranging from mid-sized companies to FTSE 100s, Isio has committed to both office expansion and recruitment in 2021.

As the firm looks to continue its growth, Matt Glover has been appointed as its new Chief Technology Officer. An experienced IT and change leader with 20 years of financial services experience, he will lead Isio's technology and development teams and be responsible for Isio's IT strategy and change portfolio.

Glover said, “Isio is at an exciting stage in its journey and I am looking forward to working with the hugely talented team of technical experts to ensure our technology platform can grow and evolve with the business. There have been some impressive innovations to date and a real opportunity to continue driving change in the sector.” 

Glover arrives at Isio from Unity Trust Bank, having previously worked at Al Rayan Bank and NatWest. He takes over from Jeremy Warren, who filled the CTO role as an interim since Isio’s opening for business in 2020.

Warren planned and executed the IT strategy for the firm’s launch, including keeping 550 colleagues connected through the pandemic and developing Isio’s cloud first strategy. Andrew Coles, Chief Executive Officer of Isio, thanked Warren for this work, which has “put us in great shape for the future.” 

Speaking of Glover, he added, “Matt brings a wealth of experience and is perfectly placed to drive forward our digital innovation and development in the market. Our national network now spans eight regional offices and Matt will lead our internal team to ensure our strategy and infrastructure can support our rapidly growing business.”
