CEO Julian Wheatland steps down from role

Cornerstone FS plc (AIM: CSFS), the cloud-based provider of international payment, currency risk management and electronic account services to SMEs, announces that Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Julian Wheatland , has decided to step down from his role with Cornerstone with immediate effect. He has agreed to facilitate an orderly handover of his responsibilities to the wider management team and has agreed to make himself available to assist the Company as required.

As CEO, Julian oversaw the creation of the Group and the successful IPO of the Company in April 2021. Since then he has piloted the development of the Group’s proprietary technology. Through acquisition and hires Julian has driven the revenue of the Group to more than double the revenues at the time of the IPO. Through Julian’s efforts the Group has been granted an e-money licence which will help drive the growth of the business with SMEs into complementary areas.

The Board will immediately embark upon a search for Julian’s replacement and are confident of finding a suitable successor with payment services experience. In the meantime the Group will continue to operate with Rob O’Brien overseeing the FX payment services business.

Commenting on his departure, Julian Wheatland said:

“It has been a pleasure to serve as Chief Executive of Cornerstone – I am proud of what we have achieved and the business that we have built.  Even as I move on to new opportunities, I wish my colleagues well and I remain available to assist them in any way that I can.

“The underlying business at Cornerstone is strong and well positioned for growth and I wish the Company and my colleagues every success for the future.”

Commenting on the changes, Cornerstone Chairman, Elliott Mannis, said:

“On behalf of the Board and staff at Cornerstone, I would like to thank Julian for his commitment to the Company and the Group. We wish Julian the very best for the future.

“Cornerstone has also commenced a search for an additional non-executive director to maintain appropriate independent balance on its Board.”
