This follows the company closing a £2.5m funding round with Ada Ventures in February, whilst growing more than 500% since lockdown began.

Dolman said of his new role: “tickr is incredible. You can see the team really cares about generating a positive impact for its customers, whilst doing all it can to build a healthier world. The co-founders have a clear vision of what they want to do, coupled with enormous energy and enthusiasm to deliver on it. As an early adopter of tickr myself, I was very impressed by its ease of use and transparency. I felt it had the ability to demystify ESG investing for people of all ages.”

tickr – a certified BCorp business – was built by Tom McGillycuddy and his co-founder, Matt Latham, after stints at Barclays and Wellington Management. Together they’ve set out to demystify investing, showing a new generation that they’re able to grow their money and have a positive impact at the same time.

Tom McGillycuddy, co-founder of tickr, said: “Gary has some of the best experience in Europe in launching and scaling a fintech business, so we’re over-the-moon to have him onboard. His experience, foresight and belief in our vision means together we can continue to drive industry-wide structural change. This change is just starting, and soon investing will be seen as one of the key ways our generation can collectively improve the world.”
