In his new role, Dearden will focus on innovation, scaling and automating processes, as well as identifying appropriate technology, such as artificial intelligence, to support the firm’s technology strategy.

Before joining GWI, Dearden was chief technology officer at OAG, where he led the shift to a new cloud data platform.

Tom Smith, chief executive and founder at GWI, said: “Our tech is about making it as easy as possible to surface important insights as part of their day-to-day. Some also want the ability to build their own tools and systems on top of our data – using our API and calculations engine.

“Nick’s proven expertise in making difficult to access data available in a unified platform will help us supercharge the innovation in our tech to deliver the best possible solutions to meet both these growing needs.”
