RegTech Platform, Sekuritance Welcomes Previous Managing Director of Airbnb Payments UK as its Chief Strategy Officer
DUBLIN — Ireland — 11/05/2022–14:00 (GMT+1) — Sekuritance (https://www.sekuritance.com), the first multi-dimensional RegTech ecosystem delivering compliance-as-a-service, today has announced the appointment of Quent Rickerby as Chief Strategy Officer (CSO).
Prior to joining Sekuritance, Mr Rickerby held the position as Managing Director of Airbnb Payments UK overseeing its FCA e-money regulated entity and continues to sit on the board of Airbnb Payments UK as a Non-executive Director. Rickerby will be a key member of the executive team, and shareholder in the business.
Mr Rickerby began his career in the payments and compliance industry over 20 years ago in Vancouver, having worked extensively in the US and Canada, Mr Rickerby relocated to Ireland where he successfully scaled a European payments firm. From there he held senior executive roles in several successful and innovative fintech firms.
Whilst Sekuritance’s main focus resides primarily in the compliance and RegTech niche, having Quent on board opens up a number of new areas of interest for the business as the company is eyeing a number of acquisition and merger opportunities to grow steadily in the business-enabler space, providing the building blocks related to RegTech, PayTech, InvestTech and FinTech under one ecosystem.
Statements from the Team
“I have worked closely with Quent for over 12 years, together we have helped build several industry leading technologies and businesses in the compliance, payments and banking industries. His extensive knowledge of the regulatory landscape is second to none, combined with his experience leading cutting edge, innovative organisations in emerging markets, makes him the ideal partner to champion the Sekuritance vision,” said Jonathan Camilleri Bowman, CEO of Sekuritance. “As we continue to expand our position in the RegTech, Blockchain and FinTech market, Quent’s expertise in building successful businesses and his extensive network of contacts will be invaluable to the growth of Sekuritance, I’m excited to see where 2022–2023 takes us!”
“Having watched the team scale up the business over the last 18 months and how they are leading the way through advanced automated technologies that enable FinTech and Blockchain companies to adhere to new compliance regulations. In addition, the company will continue to enhance its services to provide fintech companies and crypto-based businesses with the ability to monitor all aspects of a payment transaction’s integrity and legality,” said Quent Rickerby.
Rickerby also follows on by saying, “I see additional growth opportunities for other emerging markets requiring Sekuritance’s automated compliance services, such as law firms, banks, insurance companies, real estate firms and other industries that need clear identification and verification in individuals and corporations. I’m looking forward to working with the team to build on their existing growth and expand into new high-growth industry sectors”
