We believe in being bold, even if this means defending your point of view with our clients.

We are confident, courageous, and distinctive. We know our stuff. We seek this in our team and it is an essential quality when making markets, building businesses and making a difference to our customers.

In a crowded market we cannot afford to be anything but bold to punch above our weight and promote our point of view.

We believe in embracing the chance to move fast, iterate and learn in all aspects of our business.

Success isn’t achieved following a straight line, we are brave enough to zig and zag.

We don’t fear failure or working autonomously to move forward and achieve goals.

We are a workshop of inventors.

We believe in embracing creativity and original thought to solve important problems and create new opportunities.

We encourage a culture of builders – building markets, building solutions, building movements!

We believe in coming to work to make a difference. We find things to be passionate about.

We focus on solving the big problems that make a big, positive impact on our industry, our clients and our colleagues.

We don’t believe in coming to work to go through the motions, waste time and be busy fools. We do the right thing.

We believe in relying on our team to be honest and truthful.

If our customers are to trust us, then we must trust and be open with each other.

We trust each other to do our jobs, we trust each other to do our best, not to hide but learn from mistakes and to be dependable.

Meet the Team

Meet our thought leaders – people who have something to say because they engage regularly in their wider communities outside of FINkit® and they live and breathe this stuff day in, day out. We’d encourage you to engage in the debate and follow them on Twitter – they’ll usually follow you back. Engagement is the key to change.

We’ve also shone the spotlight on some of the other people around our business who aren’t always in the spotlight because it gives you a great idea of who we are, what we do and don’t do and what our people think.

Nick Cheetham: Managing Director

Instrumental in the creation of the FINkit business, Nick is a technologist at heart. He benefits from 30+ years of successes and lessons learnt during the game-altering years of many high-tech innovators of their time, both as an individual contributor through to executive leadership. At Sun Microsystems he helped pioneer Open Systems and Client Server architectures in the 80’s. He drove global sales across 30+ countries for a high growth private-cloud start-up (before it was termed cloud) founded by a former CTO of Goldman Sachs. He then led Digital Marketing Platform sales at Microsoft.
