Vaiie, a specialist Channel Island provider of digital regulatory technology, has strengthened its team of industry experts with four new, senior appointments

The appointments include a new Commercial Director, Programme Manager, Operations Manager and Solutions Architect – each bringing a credible and diverse wealth of experience which will further enhance Vaiie’s digital products and services for its clients.

Richard Gaudin comes to Vaiie as Commercial Director and will be responsible for business development and marketing, with a particular focus on growth with responsibility for the mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity. Vaiie is at a key stage of development and Richard hopes to use his 20 years’ experience in senior commercial roles to drive step-change growth within the company. In his role, Richard will be taking Vaiie’s new regulatory technology (‘RegTech’) to market – sophisticated technology designed to solve challenges around regulatory compliance, risk management, and client onboarding.

Vaiie has also appointed Adam Brown as Programme Manager to oversee its full programme of software development projects, from initial concept to bringing the products to market. With more than 15 years’ experience in the digital industry, Adam brings a wealth of knowledge across regulation, FinTech, change management, payments, banking, strategy and digital transformation. Adam will play a key role in stakeholder management at Vaiie, along with being responsible for providing fact-based insight on new and emerging trends, threats, legislation, and regulatory developments, to identify new opportunities and strategic solutions.

Luke Hopton will join as Solutions Architect and is responsible for overseeing the development teams in Jersey, Italy and Malta for all existing client services and future technology solutions. Bringing more than 10 years’ experience in software development, Luke has specialised in web and cloud technology and brings diverse experience from his career within software development in a variety of organisations in Jersey, the UK, and New Zealand. While bringing a creative and logical problem-solving approach to the role, Luke’s appointment will also be key in the liaison between the technical team and senior team and his technical skills will ensure Vaiie builds leading RegTech products that deliver value to clients.

The fourth hire is Louise Flynn who joins as Operations Manager to help lead on the outputs of Vaiie’s digital studio and oversee the team responsible for support and ensuring customer success. With previous experience both in operational roles in the legal and finance industry as well as running her own family business, Louise will work closely with the product and development teams to scope, plan, and budget projects, ensuring they are delivered to the highest possible standard.
