Leading fintech innovator Nivo has appointed Damon Williams to the new role of Sales Director as it prepares a number of exciting initiatives which it believes will transform the industries its technology serves.
Nivo has established a strong reputation in the mortgage, bridging and asset finance sectors for creating and delivering apps and solutions for financial services companies including Pepper Money, United Trust Bank and Ocean Finance. Nivo provides easily integrated solutions which manage and accelerate tasks such as remote identity verification using facial recognition, e-signing, secure messaging and document transfer.
Damon Williams joined Nivo in January 2023 and has over a decade of experience working in the technology sector with companies including Tesla, LivePerson and most recently as Sales Manager for Safety Culture, a global technology company developing innovative apps and tools for the Health & Safety industry. During his 5 years at Safety Culture, Damon played a key role in building sales from around £6m annually to in excess of £100m.
Nivo already has over 50,000 monthly users and in December 2022 announced that it had received a further £1m investment in the business from The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund by Maven Equity Finance and existing investors Barclays. Nivo plans to use the cash injection to hire within its product, marketing, customer and sales divisions with Damon being the company’s first appointment since securing the investment.
Damon’s team currently comprises Zach Thomas, Ash Higson and Laura McShane but Damon will be looking to grow the team further as Nivo launches a number of exciting initiatives which aim to transform the way businesses transact and communicate with their customers and third parties.
Welcoming Damon to Nivo, Michael Common, Chief Executive Officer, said: “This is a very exciting time for Nivo and I’m delighted to have Damon on board driving and delivering our sales strategy. Damon has a strong track record of success in the technology sector and I’m sure he is going to play a key role in Nivo’s continuing success story.”

Nivo gives financial companies their own integrated apps within three weeks, delivering 5 star reviews and removing a huge amount of paperwork, which is great for efficiency and the environment! It is an outstanding product and service which has gained many fans in a short space of time. I love to work closely with customers, discovering their pain points, delivering solutions and driving revenue growth. Now we have shown that Nivo transforms businesses, our goal this year is to transform an entire industry.”
