BOSTON and OTTAWA and EDINBURGH, United Kingdom, October 13, 2020CURO Compensation Limited (CURO), an industry leader in total compensation management and pay equity technology, today shared details about recent updates to the company’s board and leadership team. CURO has appointed Mark Phillips as chairman and welcomed Graeme MacKenzie as CFO. The previous chair, Angela Williams, who has stood down as Chair due to other work commitments, will remain on the board as a non-executive director.

“We are grateful to Angela for her counsel and leadership over the past 3 years, and are delighted that she will remain on the board. We are pleased to have Mark and Graeme join Curo,” commented Gerry O’Neill, co-founder and CEO of CURO. “With extensive experience in finance and operations, and in working with successful high growth companies, Mark and Graeme will be tremendous assets to CURO as we move forward.”

Phillips, an existing shareholder at CURO, brings over 20 years of experience in the U.K. private equity industry as both a founding partner of a successful mid-market firm and, more recently, a senior board member at companies across a range of sectors. His background includes raising and structuring investment funds, sourcing and executing investments, advising on strategy and driving shareholder value.

MacKenzie’s background blends finance and technology, having served as CFO at Pulsant for seven years, and previously as Finance Director at Lumison for six years before its acquisition by Pulsant. Earlier, he worked as Finance Director for Reuters Research Limited and in finance roles at Edinburgh Financial Publishing and KPMG. MacKenzie has overseen and driven high growth for several organizations throughout his career and been involved in multiple transactions with large private equity houses.

O’Neill concluded, “It is an exciting time for CURO as we further develop our solutions and grow our customer base for both our Compensation Management and Pay Equity products. This is a real point of inflection for the business and having Mark and Graeme on board, along with Angela’s in-depth market and product knowledge will help accelerate this growth.”
