TotallyMoney.com appoints Nigel Pocklington as new CEO

TOTALLYMONEY.COM, the credit comparison website, is pleased to announce the appointment of Nigel Pocklington as its new Chief Executive Officer. Nigel, previously Chief Marketing Officer at Hotels.com, replaces business co-founder Will Becker who will be moving to the role of Executive Chairman. Nigel takes the helm at TotallyMoney.com as the business continues its mission to change the UK consumer credit market.

Nigel will play a crucial role in building on TotallyMoney.com’s strengths – including its market leading online credit comparison tools which deliver the most comprehensive service in the industry – to take the company to the top of the sector. He will be integral in developing TotallyMoney.com’s proposition to a broader section of consumers across a wider range of channels beyond the online marketing heartlands.

Joining from Expedia’s Hotels.com, Nigel has worked in a number of senior roles over the past seven years, from Managing Director for its EMEA business to global Chief Marketing Officer. Nigel brings direct experience of growing major online brands to his new role at TotallyMoney.com. He also brings a wealth of experience in online publishing and product strategy, having worked in strategic and operational roles at Pearson and the Financial Times.

In his new role of executive chairman, Will Becker will support business growth by dedicating his time to developing external relationships across the credit industry. He will help to spread TotallyMoney.com’s message to a wider consumer audience, positioning the business as a thought leader in the consumer credit sector.

Will Becker, Executive Chairman and co-founder of TotallyMoney.com, said: “Last year, TotallyMoney.com threw down the gauntlet to the UK credit comparison market with a new communications approach which set out to appeal to a wider range of consumers. Today’s announcement builds on this platform and marks another important milestone in the growth of the business. With his vast experience in growing online brands, Nigel is the perfect choice to lead TotallyMoney.com as we embark on this new and exciting stage in our development. I look forward to working with him in my role as Executive Chairman and seeing TotallyMoney.com move to the next level.”

Nigel Pocklington, CEO of TotallyMoney.com, added: “This is a great time to join TotallyMoney.com. Its vision for the future of the credit comparison market in the UK is unique, as is its ambition to lead a complex and rewarding market.
