Leading marketing at high-growth fintech GoCardless

UK fintech GoCardless recently raised $75 million from external investors to fuel its global expansion. Paul Snell talks to its new CMO Neil Morgan about his strategy and plans to double the size of the marketing team

When Neil Morgan was assessing the options for his next career move, having left Sage in the summer of 2018, he decided his future would lie in one of three areas – in the world of fintech, AI or blockchain.

He spent his summer reading up on these three areas, and having considered a number of offers, the invitation to become the CMO at GoCardless was too good for him to resist – in particular as the whole company is located in one office in London. “I’ve not really done that as CMO, and had this massive passion for it,” he says. “The job of marketing is to translate the value of technology and that’s something I’ve done all my career.”
