Openmoney chief executive and co-founder steps down
Anthony Morrow, chief executive and co-founder of Openmoney

Anthony Morrow, co-founder and chief executive of digital adviser Openmoney, has stepped down from his day-to-day leadership role.

Morrow has left his leadership role at the digital advice provider after six years.

But he will continue to stay close to the business and has taken on a non-executive role, providing strategic support to the board and management team.

Morrow co-founded Openmoney, originally branded Evestor, in 2016 along with Moneysupermarket.com founder Duncan Cameron to combat the failings of the financial advice and investment industry.

His role as chief executive will not be directly filled, instead the leadership team will continue to lead the company's day-to-day activities.

Last year Leanne Williams joined Openmoney as chief operations officer, completing the senior leadership team. 

She joined from Sense Network, where she held multiple senior roles across operations and wider management functions.

Morrow said: “After six years at Openmoney, it felt like a good time for me to pursue some of the opportunities I am passionate about in the social impact and charity space, whilst continuing to promote Openmoney to anyone who will listen, and often those who won’t as well.

“Little will change in the way Openmoney operates, and after putting a lot time, energy and resource into our products, the company is ready to reach new heights and I can’t wait to see it.”
