John Byrne, CEO of Corlytics, the world leader in regulatory risk intelligence, has expanded the leadership team to support a global growth strategy for the business. This follows the recent closing of a significant funding round, with the business poised to cement its leadership position in the growing regtech marketplace.

Founded in 2013, Corlytics has built a team comprised of leading data scientists, proven banking risk practitioners and regulatory lawyers. Expertise of the strengthened leadership team span these specialisms, with individuals having previously built global businesses in this space and held senior level roles in commercial and regulatory law within IBM, Information Mosaic, Cap Gemini and BAE Systems.
Byrne said: "I’m delighted to extend our leadership team, bringing on some real industry heavy weights with proven execution power internationally. We are poised to grow the team to 100 globally by end of next year, so needed to reshape the management.
