Reporting directly to our Chief Product Officer, Rob Fernandes, he will be integral to our leadership team as we continue to build out our vision for Deko as a multi-lender, multi-product platform, and further drive profitable growth.
“Dan has been a fantastic leader at Kingfisher plc and made incredible contributions to the business ensuring it stayed at the forefront of delivering new innovations and capabilities in the field of retail payments and finance. We firmly believe that he will play a central role at Deko driving our differentiation and extending our leadership in the multi-lending, multi-product space.”
Daniel added, “Deko has an incredible opportunity and an unmatched technology set to help merchants maximise their sales opportunity using finance. Critical to that is how effective our product is for consumers at checkout - by using multiple lenders and products to create an effective purchasing experience and unbeatable acceptance promise.
“For much of my career I’ve worked to understand consumer buying journeys and with that comprehensive understanding reduce friction at the checkout, maximising consumer engagement, increase web traffic and reduce the cost of sales. It is this approach I will be bringing to Deko.”
