The UK’s first Digital Bank
Background:Atom Bank is a new digital only bank that plans to open for business late in 2015. The bank will be different as it doesn’t even have a call centre, or not for general customer service calls anyway. The bank aims for everyone to be able to do everything from the comfort of their screen, whether that be mobile, laptop or even worn.
Mark Mullen is the new CEO of Atom Bank and the Co-Founder of Atom Bank alongside Anthony Thomson, the man behind Metro Bank. Mark formerly headed up First Direct, another non-branch based banking organisation. With the bank building its base in Durham and already well down stream on licences and recruitment, this evening plans to be a particularly remarkable one, as Mark provides us with his vision of the UK’s first truly digital bank launch.
