Pleo appoints ex-Monzo CTO

Expense management business Pleo has appointed a new Chief Technology Officer who was previously at Monzo in the same role. 

In Brief: 

Meri Williams joins the company from AI business Healx. 

She also holds various advisory positions to support technology teams. 

Williams was at Monzo Bank between 2018 and 2020. 

What does this mean? 

Williams said that she has been “impressed” by Pleo’s journey to date and says the organisation is a “vital lifeline” for businesses across Europe. Pleo has expanded into six markets in the past two years but recently had to cut its workforce by 15%, so Williams joins the business at a difficult time amid economic uncertainty.
