AIM-listed prepaid gift card and voucher provider Park Group has appointed a new chief information officer.
Stephen Miller has “extensive experience” in financial services technology innovation and implementation.
In his previous role, Miller spent two years as head of Bank of America Merrill Lynch in Chester, where he oversaw the technology and operations teams supporting Card, Network, Transaction and Investment Banking core businesses as well as Digital Innovation, Command Centre, Information Security, Business Resilience and other aligned support functions.
Before moving to the North West, Miller worked in London as chief information officer of Standard Chartered Bank for UK and Europe.
His experience also spans senior IT and operations positions at Bear Sterns and JP Morgan as well as various government and regulatory committee and advisory roles in the UK and overseas, most recently with the Bank of England FX Joint Steering and Cyber Security committees.
He began his career in the Royal Navy and is a council member of the Business Disability Forum, which champions the use of technology to provide accessibility for all in the workplace.
“The appointment of someone of the experience and expertise of Stephen as our new CIO, fits extremely well with what Park has evolved into, with IT innovation at the heart of its offering,” said Park Group CEO Ian O’Doherty.
“More importantly, he will be invaluable to our product and services development and IT operations as we continue to grow in the future.”
Park Group trades under a number of multi-retailer gift voucher and pre-paid gift card brands including Love2Shop, Evolve and highstreetvouchers.com.
The group is based in Merseyside and is listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange.
