The Irish division of robo-adviser Ignition Wealth has named Alan Quinlan as its new chief executive.
Mr Quinlan steps into the new role with over a decade's experience in the financial services industry, and has previously held senior roles with BT Financial Group in Australia and Mercer in Ireland.
Ignition Wealth group CEO Mark Fordree said the firm was happy with the appointment.
“Ignition Wealth has a multi-currency and multi-language platform which we are currently deploying in Ireland. We are pleased to have appointed Alan Quinlan to head our Ireland operations,” he said.
Mr Quinlan said his appointment was a “well-timed opportunity” to localise technology to meet the needs of Irish financial services firms.
“Following a prolonged period of underinvestment in technology and the increasing regulatory burden, financial institutions are now hungry to provide their customers with compliant consumer-grade experiences,” he said.
“We look forward to building the business and the opportunity to provide the next generation of digital financial advice to Irish institutions.”
