Know-it Expands its Team with a New Head of Product
The credit management company has onboarded its new Head of Product to drive the product management team and innovate its platform.
The appointment will see the Scottish fintech platform strengthen its commitment to further innovating its platform.
Know-its solution enables users to credit check and monitor customers in real-time using data integrations from Graydon, Companies House, The Gazette and Unsecured Creditor Claims.
The tech streamlines the credit-control process, so users can credit check and monitor, chase payments, and collect overdue, unpaid invoices all from one place.
Heading the ‘Construction Accounting Product of the Year’ team for five years running, McMurray comes to the team with over 20 years of experience in technical product management.
She has already enjoyed an impressive career path with organisations such as Eque2 Limited, Sage Constructions, and EVision Ltd. Her work focused on leading teams in product creation.
Commenting on her new appointment, McMurray said: “Having worked in a start-up previously and thrived on the challenges and responsibilities it brought along with the excitement it created, I was keen to become involved and join a strong entrepreneurial leadership team.
“Lynne’s passion and enthusiasm are as refreshing as contagious and were key factors in my decision. The innovation and creativity within the team have led to a solution that not only supports SMEs but solves a real issue for businesses both locally and globally.
“I have always enjoyed learning about innovative technologies/processes/markets and will use this to improve personally and professionally to ensure Know-it continues to grow and reshape the credit management space”.
At Know-it, McMurray will work with the leadership team on completing the synergy between the business and the Know-it product as the company continues to scale.
She will also ensure the principles of Know-it; Check-it, Chase-it, and Collect-it run intuitively across all aspects of the brand.
“Scotland has strengthened its position as a leading technology destination, and it’s an inspiring time to be involved,” she added.
“The tech sector is one of the fastest growing, and the support in place for start-ups to develop is second to none. It is amazing to see the growth across the Scottish fintech scene.
“Over the next five years, this sector will continue to grow and become an even bigger player in the global market as new and emerging technologies provide further opportunities for individuals and businesses,” she said.
Lynne Darcey Quigley, Founder, and CEO of Know-it, added: “We had been looking for over nine months for the role, and from the first viewing of her application, we knew Wendy was an exceptional woman in the product management field.
“She has come from a company where she has had more than 20 years of experience, and this told me a lot about how she values commitment and, of course, her character.
“She understands the fintech start-up journey, which is hugely important to the success of our company.”
