Mark Hipperson Returns to Ziglu as Executive Chairman

Published 6 months ago

Mark Hipperson, founder and former CEO of Ziglu, has resumed his duties at the crypto-focused neobank, now as executive chairman. Hipperson had stepped down from his CEO role in February, shifting to a director and shareholder position.

He used LinkedIn to announce his return after a brief sabbatical and successful Q2 fundraise. He also highlighted changes in the board and executive team, which included the appointment of new co-CEOs.

New Faces in Leadership

Kevin Hanley and Mark Jenkinson joined the company as co-CEOs in April. Hanley, a former head of innovation for NatWest Group, brings years of experience from his roles at ABN AMRO and Accenture. Meanwhile, Jenkinson, a co-founder of Chetwood Financial, has a background in strategy and operations.

The reshuffling has seen the departure of some original team members. Hipperson expressed his gratitude, stating, “We’ve refreshed both the board and the executive team, bidding farewell to some incredible individuals who have been with us since the beginning.”

Future Plans for Ziglu

According to Hipperson, Ziglu is preparing to launch a range of innovative financial investment products in the next six to nine months. This comes as the company enters a growth-focused phase, intending to use its regulatory approvals in the UK and EU to expand significantly.

This expansion follows the recent implementation of the FCA financial promotions legislation. Hipperson remains confident about the opportunities presented by the regulatory changes and the company’s future plans.
