Nucleus has been proud to be an active member of FinTech Scotland ever since our chief executive David Ferguson was first appointed to the role of fintech envoy back in December 2016.

We’re now excited to announce that David has been appointed as the first chairman of the FinTech Scotland board.

David says: “It’s a great privilege to have been appointed as chairman.

I’m super excited to share the news that Nucleus has signed the Women in Finance Charter and pledge to improve the gender balance in our senior leadership team by setting a target of no less than 40% female representation by the end of 2020.
