Martin — the former co-chief executive at Standard Life Aberdeen, co-founder of Aberdeen Asset Management and chairman of the PRA Practitioner Panel — will begin his new role on 1st January 2020.

He worked closely with Nik Storonsky, founder and CEO at Revolut, in an advisory capacity prior to his appointment.

“As we prepare to scale the business globally, it’s crucial our senior team has a blend of forward-thinking creativity and experience,” said Nik.

“Martin is a respected veteran of the financial world and brings unparalleled experience to Revolut.

“His knowledge will prove invaluable as we continue our mission to become the world’s first truly global bank.”

Martin added: “Revolut is a unique proposition in the digital banking world, and I’m pleased to be joining the board at such an important stage in its development.”

Revolut recently signed new global deals with Visa and Mastercard, expanded into Australia and Singapore, and opened one million new accounts in October.
