Payments and compliance software provider Accuity has appointed a new CEO and COO.

David Wilson (pictured), who served as Accuity’s chief operating officer for the past 18 months, has been named the firm’s new managing director and CEO.

Tom Golding replaces him as COO, and will guide technology, product and operations across the company. He previously headed up product strategy and client delivery across the Fircosoft and Bankers Almanac risk and compliance portfolios, having joined Accuity from Thomson Reuters in 2016.

Hugh Jones, formerly CEO and president of Accuity, has been elevated to an expanded role within the risk and business analytics division of RELX Group, Accuity’s parent company. He will continue to oversee Accuity, in addition to leading the FlightGlobal, EG and ICIS businesses.

Wilson previously held a number of senior management positions within RELX, including CEO of data insight company Proagrica.

He comments on his new remit: “I look forward to guiding our teams as we strive to lead the industry with solutions that transform the way our clients manage financial crime compliance and create efficiencies for global payments.”
