Curinos, a global data-intelligence business that brings together exclusive expertise, insights and analytics for the financial services industry, today announced that Olly Downs has been appointed as Chief Technology and AI Officer, effective immediately.

Downs first joined Curinos in 2023 as Chief Data Scientist to lead the company’s personalization technology team, including the rollout of its Amplero Personalization Optimizer solution, which Downs founded in 2016.

With AI at the core, it’s tuned for critical use cases and workflows, including onboarding, cross-selling and deposit growth. Curinos recently announced expanded creative management workflow capabilities for Amplero incorporating generative AI, allowing marketers to rapidly create fresh, engaging content tailored to each client's individual needs that is relevant throughout the customer lifecycle.

In his new leadership role, Downs will be responsible for overseeing Curinos’ data & technology strategy, expanding artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities, and advancing Curinos’ data platform infrastructure. He will report directly to Craig Woodward, Curinos’ Chief Executive Officer.

“We’re delighted to welcome Olly to our senior leadership team,” said Woodward. “He is a true pioneer in the technology industry with more than 20 years’ experience in building and delivering successful data-driven businesses. Olly’s extensive knowledge and understanding of delivering enterprise-scale AI and Machine Learning capabilities supported by scaled data and analytics infrastructure will be incredibly valuable as we continue to explore new ways AI can transform how our clients work.”

“It’s an honor to be taking on this new role,” said Downs. “Watching the rapid growth and client engagement with the Amplero product has been incredible, and I am beyond excited to continue driving new innovations at Curinos that leverage AI together with our vast, proprietary data to empower our customers to make more informed decisions so that they can grow their business.”
