Matt Bonetti has been appointed Head of Development of Hargreaves Lansdown’s IT division.
He will be responsible for all software development
Bonetti joins from TransVault, an independent software company, where he was Chief Technologist. He spent 16 years working in technology in the City of London before returning to the West Country four years ago to further his IT career. He’s a former pupil of Kings of Wessex school in Cheddar and a mathematics graduate from Cambridge University.
Chief Information Officer at Hargreaves Lansdown David Davies said: “The IT team’s role is to ensure that HL remains at the forefront of technology, providing our clients with a safe and reliable home for their investments, whilst continuing to evolve the products and services we can offer. The appointment of Matt Bonetti, who brings a wealth of experience from his previous roles, is integral to our ability to ensure we can deliver an ever-improving experience for our growing client base. I am delighted to welcome Matt on board.
Our aim is to continue to invest and deliver an ever-improving experience to win the hearts and minds of the demanding UK consumer.”
Bonetti said: “After 16 years working in the City of London and around the world, it was a pleasant surprise to find out how established the IT industry in the West Country has become. Bristol has always been the home of great engineers, but in recent years has established itself as a dynamic FinTech hub, and is now the perfect place for talented developers to make their home. The opportunity to be at the heart of such a highly regarded and innovative business as Hargreaves Lansdown was one I couldn’t turn down, and I’m proud to be a part of its world class technology team.”
