Duco Announces Growth Advisory Council

London, 30 January 2020 – Duco, the global provider of self-service data integrity and reconciliation services, today announced the formation of a Growth Advisory Council to support its product and market expansion.

The group consists of leaders in financial services and technology, including senior management of leading global institutions: Philippe Buron, formerly of Societe Generale and BNP; Don Callahan, formerly of Citi; Mandy DeFilippo, of Morgan Stanley; Jonathan Greenwood, of ABN Amro; Doug Hague, formerly of Bank of America; James Hardy, of State Street; Ignacio Lopez-Perea, formerly of BBVA; Slava Shafir, of Barclays; Stuart Sinclair, board member at Lloyds Banking Group and QBE.

Many members have been in executive positions overseeing large scale data programmes, digital transformation initiatives, wholesale cloud strategy changes, regulatory compliance implementations and associated operational changes. The Growth Advisory Council will be focused on strategic thinking for the next five to ten years, anticipating market demand and particularly mega-trends such as the evolution of data functions in large businesses, the impact of regulatory and data protection fragmentation across the globe, and the evolution of machine learning.

“Data is a key board room subject for the world’s biggest businesses, but it is a difficult and abstract area for major companies, with much noise in the market and lack of clarity on where investment is needed,” said Christian Nentwich, CEO of Duco. “We are pleased that we managed to bring such a prestigious group of people together to help us connect the technology and board agenda, and to make sure that we lead the industry forward.”
