“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.”

“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.”
Nivo’s communications mission
Nivo is a fintech company that aims to improve communication between customers, lenders and brokers and remove process barriers.
Its instant messaging technology improves efficiency and can be white-labelled or integrated into an existing mobile app and offers solutions such as remote identity verification using facial recognition, e-signing and document transfer.
Nivo has 50,000 monthly users and in December, the firm secured £1m investment in the business from The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund by Maven Equity Finance and existing investors Barclays.
This investment will be used to recruit in its product, marketing, customer and sales divisions.
