Sentinels widens leadership team with CPO appointment


RegTech firm Sentinels has expanded its leadership team with the appointment of Christian Roberts to the role of chief product officer.

In his new role, Roberts will focus on building out the Sentinels platform in line with the firm’s rapid growth and expanding client footprint, both in FinTech and with traditional financial institutions.

Roberts holds over twenty years of financial services industry experience, spanning product, delivery and technical assurance. He has also held both senior consulting and corporate positions at FinTechs and traditional financial institutions, holding positions with companies such as American Express and Worldremit.

Roberts said, “As the Sentinels customer base grows, so do the opportunities to develop and scale our platform. The Sentinels team is committed to continuously innovating and simplifying the workflows within the platform while, at the same time, broadening the insights our clients can gain from the data flowing through the system.

“As we grow, we have a terrific opportunity to connect clients together to share insights and leading practice. These are just some of the areas I’ll be focusing on in the coming months.”

Joost van Houten – CEO of Sentinels – added, “Only with novel approaches will we achieve our goal to help financial institutions to create a world without crime. We need to keep challenging the status quo and change behaviours in the industry, and great product management plays an instrumental role there.

“That’s why we’re thrilled to have Christian join us; he shares our passions and brings an invaluable depth of product experience to the team. I’m delighted to welcome him on board.”

Earlier this year, Sentinels appointed Adrian Jenkins to the role of chief commercial officer.
