The new appointments bolster GBG’s focus on evolving its product solutions in identity, anti-fraud and location intelligence, whilst continuing to grow and strengthen operations internationally.

Mark will oversee technology direction and execution across the group, ensuring the adoption and exploitation of technology and operational excellence in GBG’s engineering practices.                 

Mark joins from Serco, where he held a range of executive and senior management roles, such as Divisional CIO for UK & Europe and Group Chief Technology Officer, where he established Serco’s group technology strategy and technology-enabled transformation within its business.

  • Adam Hancox joins as Group Head of Product, with responsibility for driving portfolio development based on customer insight and strategic priorities, whilst building on GBG’s traditional product strengths to accelerate the pace of innovation across the portfolio. 

Adam has held a range of senior roles within product management, most recently as Product Director at Travelport, the commerce platform that provides distribution, technology, payment and other solutions to the travel industry.

Chris Clark, CEO, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Mark and Adam to the GBG team. They each bring a wealth of experience in driving businesses forward through technology.

It’s essential to the success of GBG that we continue to work closely with our customers to understand the challenges they face in this constantly evolving world. Both Mark and Adam in their new roles will be integral to making that happen”.
