Damian Hedley Announced as Planixs CTO
Planixs, the leading provider of real time, intraday cash, collateral and liquidity management solutions, has announced that Damian Hedley, has returned to the company and will become the Chief Technology Officer.
An experienced senior IT leader with a wealth of experience gained across multiple sectors in both consulting and industry, Damian will lead all technical delivery and operations capabilities for Planixs and will be responsible for the continued development of the company’s technology roadmap.
As one of Planixs’ earliest employees, Damian previously worked for the organisation for over 3 years, developing the first iteration of Planixs’ real time banking software, Realiti, whilst growing the development team and taking the lead on software delivery projects for internal and client operations.
Damian returns to Planixs after spending over 2 years at online retailer N Brown Group Plc, where he served as the Group’s Head of Enterprise IT Change. In this role, he was responsible for the delivery of the N Brown Enterprise IT change portfolio of projects. Damian also led and developed a combined in-house and 3rd party SI team of project and programme managers, business analysts, portfolio test managers & testers.
Damian also previously undertook the role of Technical Architect and Delivery Manager at Accenture – where he was responsible for a large number of projects for retailers including Argos, Sainsbury and WH Smith, and spent 5 years at Barclays as Head of Application Delivery for Barclaycard Global Payment Acceptance.
The appointment of Damian as CTO follows Planixs’ strategic investment of £3.5 million from private equity firm British Growth Fund (BGF) in early 2019.
“Planixs is one of the most innovative financial technology companies in the UK and I am thrilled to be back and heading up its CTO function. I am looking forward to being a part of the Planixs team again – providing technical direction and driving the company forward,” Damian commented.
Planixs’ CEO, Neville Roberts, added, “It is great to have Damian back at Planixs and undertaking the Chief Technology Officer role. Damian has extensive experience leading and delivering large, complex IT development projects, and his time at previous companies such as Accenture and Barclays, coupled with his previous experience at Planixs, make him the right person to lead our team.”
