Ron Emerson, formerly of British Business Bank, is joining a UK FinTech.
B-North is a startup aimed at funding small businesses.
Emerson has also worked at the Bank of England, Standard Chartered and Bank of America.
He’ll join the board in September, replacing Craig Iley.
What does this mean?
During Emerson’s time at British Business Bank, the organisation helped fund the Northern Powerhouse and also funded more than 40,000 new startups through various partnerships – so he’s well placed to advise the Manchester-based SME focused FinTech.
