Financial services consultancy 11:FS has bolstered its senior team with the addition of Jo Wright as its new chief financial officer.

Wright, formerly the interim-CFO at Thought Machine, will also be spearheading the consultancy’s international expansion in her role.

“I’m excited to join 11:FS as it moves into its fourth year and continues its rapid expansion in London, New York and beyond,” said Wright. 

“The fintech and financial services market fascinates me, and I’m looking forward to working with the talented executive team that 11:FS has assembled and support them to deliver against the strategic vision for building truly digital financial services.”

Prior to Thought Machine Wright was CFO of Auction Technology Group, Nickelodeon UK and held senior financial exec roles at Sky.

“I’m delighted Jo has joined 11:FS and cannot wait to see her impact on the firm. She brings a wealth of experience in transforming finance functions and ensuring they act as a collaborative business partner,” said David Brear, group CEO at 11:FS. 

Last year the consultancy extended its £3m fundraise from Norweigian financial giant DNB and signed a partnership to start building new loan products for DNB.
