Funding platform Swoop has appointed George Htin-Kyaw as Chief Technology Officer.
Swoop has grown rapidly since launching in 2018 and has made several strategically significant senior appointments to its team of business and financial experts.
As the latest addition to the company’s C-suite, Htin-Kyaw will be responsible for shaping Swoop’s technology strategy and creating the right focus and technical team to fulfil Swoop’s goal to become the go-to platform for businesses in the UK.
Htin-Kyaw has more than 25 years of experience in major financial and technology businesses as well as start-ups.
He joins Swoop from Faculty, a UK-based technology company, where he was Head of Engineering.
He comments: “Today, user experience can be the difference between success and failure for any business.
“By applying the right technologies, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, and advanced analytics, we can better understand user needs and deliver the services that our customers want.
“For Swoop, it means not only finding the right finance for our customers but also identifying a wide range of other financial benefits such as how to make savings and become a more efficient business. In other words, financial intelligence and healthcare.”
Andrea Reynolds, Swoop’s CEO, comments: “We’re already making big advances in financial awareness and access for businesses of all types, and we’re determined to build a Swoop community that’s founded on the best technology and financial insights.
“I’m delighted to welcome George to Swoop and am sure that his vast international experience and creative leadership will help to attract the right talent and strengthen and diversify our offering.”
