UK fintech Deko hires Joseph Tucker as new CFO
UK-based multi-lender buy now, pay later (BNPL) fintech Deko has appointed Joseph Tucker as its new chief financial officer (CFO).
Joining over from NewDay, which acquired Deko in January 2020, Tucker held several roles across investor relations, financial reporting, analytics and corporate strategy.
Tucker played a central role in the acquisition, which “has given him invaluable insight and knowledge of the business”, Deko says.
Beginning his career at KPMG, where he qualified as a chartered accountant, Tucker moved on to Barclays, specialising in treasury, FP&A, and regulatory stress testing.
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”.
Additionally, Tucker says the firm has the potential to influence how consumers shop for and finance goods and services, “as well as being a key strategic partner for merchants facing an increasingly volatile economy”.
Deko CEO Mike Dawson says Tucker “brings a wealth of company knowledge, business experience, and a successful career with multiple companies”, and will play a key role as Deko transitions to its next stage of corporate development.
