Know-it, an all-in-one credit management solution, has appointed Phil Hobden as its head of strategy and growth.

Hobden is an expert in FinTech and is well-known within the UK accounting industry, having spent years leading and building sales teams, defining go-to-market strategy and growing business success.

The mission of Glasgow-based Know-it is to expand its services globally and assist SMEs worldwide in realising the importance of automating the credit control process.

“With a rich background in FinTech, Phil holds a strategic role which will guide Know-it’s strategic direction, global ambition and collaborations which will drive growth and impact in the sector,” said Lynne Darcey Quigley, CEO and founder.

Hobden commented: “As a company with a strong existing leadership and ambition, Know-it offered the opportunity for me to work in a booming FinTech scene with a great product and the aspiration for it to be the leading light in the industry.

“Through partnering with accountants, bookkeepers, and advisors, I plan to build on Know-its ground-breaking work so far into the advisor-led space, ensuring that we make a lot of noise in the process. 

“Simply put, every SME should be using Know-it and whilst there are other softwares in the market there that touches on what we do, no one has yet nailed that end-to-end piece like we have.”
