Quotevine, a software provider for the automotive, asset and consumer finance sector, has announced that Tom Jones has joined as chief operating officer (COO).
With over 15 years’ experience in financial services, Jones previously held the role of chief technical officer for Sopra Banking Software for over two-and-a-half years.
In 2000, Jones co-founded Mobile Productivity, later Sword Mobile, a service provider for the travel industries, before settling in fintech with the creation of asset finance quotation and front-office system Sprint.
Jones said: “Joining Quotevine has re-sparked my belief in innovative software and brilliant products, promoted by a fantastic team that cares about delivering customer-centric solutions.
“I look forward to working with the entire Quotevine team as we leverage our strong momentum, bright talent and market-leading technology to continue to help our customers build and expand.”
In his new role, Jones will be supporting Quotevine’s growth and corporate culture following recent product launches such as Quickstart, its asset finance processing software as a service (SaaS) technology.
Daniel Layne, chief executive of Quotevine, said: “We’re really excited that Tom has chosen to join us: with a great mixture of entrepreneurial skills and the experience of working with Tier 1 organisations, he will play a key role in driving internal excellence as we welcome larger and larger customers in the coming years.
“The entire team is conscious of maintaining service for existing customers as we grow, and having someone with Tom’s operational skills will be vital in achieving that.”
Jones lives in the UK with his family and enjoys sailing in his spare time.
In 1989 he wrote a dissertation on amorphous silicon films as an Erasmus scholarship student at the University of Leuven, Belgium.
Quotevine was founded in 2011 and counts as its clients Toyota Financial Services, 1pm plc and Motonovo.
