RegTech firm Regnology has appointed Rob Mackay to the role of chief executive officer.
The appointment comes after its founding CEO Jürgen Lux stepped down from the position to assume a new role as a senior advisor to the Regnology board of directors and its parent company Nordic Capital. Regnology recently rebranded under its new name, shedding its old name BearingPoint RegTech.
According to Regnology, it picked Mackay on account of his ‘extensive experience from the financial services sector as a successful executive with a strong track record and customer focus’.
Mackay recently served as CEO of financial service company and technology provider Itiviti and previously worked for FIS as a chief operating officer for the cross-asset trading and risk business unit.
Mackay said, “Regnology is a company with a strong offering and great, dedicated people. I am looking forward to build upon the impressive foundation that has been established to date and to working with Regnology’s many talented and passionate colleagues, contributing to its continued development, and delivering the service, solutions and innovation that customers require to support their business and strategic ambitions.”
Lux added, “After almost three decades, now is the right time for me to step aside and make a change. Regnology is ideally positioned for a successful future and is fully on course for growth. With Nordic Capital, we have the right partner at our side. I am pleased to be able to contribute to the new chapter of the company’s success story as Senior Advisor.”
