Global Screening Services (GSS), a RegTech innovator focused on financial transactions screening, has today announced that Ruth Fletcher will be appointed COO and CFO of the business. Fletcher brings a wealth of experience in C-suite roles, on both sides of the regulatory fence, to the GSS team.

Prior to joining GSS, Fletcher served in the same joint COO/CFO role at international money transfer provider CurrencyFair.com and B2B specialist venture capital firm Frontline Ventures. In addition to these roles, she served as CFO and Board Member at Fenergo and Group Financial Controller at Detica NetReveal (formerly Norkom Technologies), both in the Regtech sector.

Fletcher’s extensive experience in providing Regtech services for companies involved in online payments and financial investments, as well as those utilising these services, will play a vital role in the growth of GSS’ finance and operations functions. This expertise will prove invaluable as the company prepares to launch its core product to the market in 2023.

In her role, Fletcher will be reporting to company CEO Tom Scampion and the GSS Board.

Ruth Fletcher, COO and CFO of GSS, comments:

“Throughout my career, I’ve seen the challenges faced by financial institutions caused by inefficiencies in the system, whether from screening or other processes. The leadership at GSS has built a fantastic team and I’m excited to lend my experience to make our finance and operations functions the building blocks for our future growth.”

Tom Scampion, CEO at GSS, comments:

“Ruth Fletcher brings with her a wealth of expertise in scaling technology businesses, making her a perfect fit for her role as GSS’ new Chief Financial and Operating Officer. Her deep understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities that come with our industry will be instrumental in guiding GSS as we continue to innovate and grow.
