Global digital transformation specialist GFT joins forces with FinTech North, following the opening of its Manchester Innovation Hub in September last year.
Working alongside the well-known platform, GFT will assist with its continued support of the best and brightest fintech businesses across the region.
Employing more than 8,000 people globally, GFT advises and supports some of the world’s largest financial institutions and now brings unparalleled expertise to digitally enable fintech businesses based in the north.
The business chose Manchester as the location for its Innovation Hub to tap into the city’s ever-growing tech talent. Headed up by Regional Director Pete Coulter, the Manchester Innovation Hub has committed to recruiting 100 roles across the north by the end of 2022 to help support its growing client base here.
Pete Coulter, Regional Director of GFT, said: “FinTech North is a well-established and respected organisation. As a relatively new business to the Manchester tech community, we’re delighted to have partnered with FinTech North to help us meet like-minded fintech businesses here. We’re looking forward to supporting the important work the organisation does to promote the thriving fintech economy across the Northern Powerhouse.”
Joe Roche, Engagement Manager at FinTech North, said: “GFT is a global business that has identified Manchester (and the north) as a key region for its UK growth. Its commitment and investment in the region is exciting and we’re thrilled to have the company as a partner that is consistently developing and championing innovation across the sector.”
