UK fintech Deko hires Joseph Tucker as new CFO #
Deko, a UK-based multi-lender BNPL fintech, has hired new chief financial officer (CFO), Joseph Tucker.
NewDay acquired Deco in January of 2020, so Joseph Tucker has been acquainted with Deko as he had played a central role in the acquisition process. This “has given him invaluable insight and knowledge of the business”, according to Deko.
Prior to holding this position, Joseph occupied several roles across investor relations, financial reporting, analytics and corporate strategy.
His career began at KPMG as a chartered accountant, then pivoted to Barclays where Tucker specialised in treasury, FP&A, and regulatory stress testing. Joseph’s vision for the role sees him prioritising finance and central functions of the business in decision making process and operational efficiency. According to his commentary, the company can affect how customers shop for finance goods and services, “as well as being a key strategic partner for merchants facing an increasingly volatile economy”.
Tucker says his “vision” for the role sees him ensuring that the finance and central functions of the business “are at the heart of decision-making and operational efficiency”. Deko CEO Mike Dawson comments on Joseph’s appointment by saying that he “brings a wealth of company knowledge, business experience, and a successful career with multiple companies”, and can play a huge part in Deko shift to a next stage of corporate development.
