Ben RichmondFounder, CEO, CPO
Driven by a vision of the future of regulatory compliance, Ben founded CUBE in 2011. Once described as the ‘world-beating Rockstar of RegTech’, Ben is our results-driven CEO and CPO with a focus on progression and growth.
Ben started his career in technology at MISys and soon came to realise the untapped potential hidden within unstructured data. With this potential in mind, Ben set out to build business centred around harnessing unstructured data for the greater good within financial services. In 1998, he founded The Content Group, with a view to set global standards for content-related initiatives.
In 2008, in the midst of the global financial crisis, Ben was quick to see that the future of financial services was going to change. The industry had been brought to its knees due to lack of efficient controls. Ben saw that the future of finance was rooted in more rules, regulations and policies—unstructured data that would need to be harnessed and managed by financial institutions. With this vision in mind, Ben founded CUBE.
