SmartSearch has expanded its senior team with three new appointments.

Chris Clayton-White has been appointed vice-president of customer success and will be responsible for overseeing the client services team.

Clayton-White has previously worked at established fintech businesses and brings a wealth of expertise along with significant experience of leading an enterprise client management team.

Lee Carter has joined as head of sales and will be responsible for delivering new business sales targets.

Carter’s main focus will be on developing SmartSearch’s enterprise business solutions and sales methodology.

Carter has expertise in KYC and fraud and has held senior sales and business development roles over the last 10 years.

Matt Bevan joins as enterprise business development manager and will be responsible for enterprise sales to large financial services firms, as well as introducing SmartSearch to new markets in gaming, telecommunications, insurance and retail.

Bevan has experience working for a global IT company and has a background in identity and fraud business.

John Dobson, chief executive of SmartSearch, said: “With the invaluable collective experience, Lee and Matt will help drive our expansion in to new and existing markets with our enterprise solutions whilst Chris will focus on the continued development of our extensive 4,500 client firms and oversee the delivery of our new enterprise solutions.

“They each bring new ideas and skillsets, which will be invaluable in helping us to achieve our long-term aims.

“There is a huge market for anti-money laundering solutions in the UK and the events of 2020 have brought issues such as ID verification to the fore.

“This has generated great demand for our product, as we recorded our busiest ever month in September.

“These three new appointments will build on the success so far and help us achieve our goals in 2021.”
