Monzo co-founder and soon-to-be former chief technology officer Jonas Huckestein is making way for a new kid on the block, as business printing house Moo’s CTO Meri Williams joins the team. Speaking to City A.M. ahead of the announcement, Williams explained that while there’s nothing at Monzo she wants to change or do differently, she’s most excited about the journey the digital bank might take her on. She spent the first ten years of her career at Procter and Gamble, where at one point she ran the finance systems for the EMEA region, and has since done stints scaling up digital teams elsewhere and worked inside M&S’s digital team.

Hull boxer Tommy Coyle has revealed details of his latest challenge - and it won't be in the boxing ring. Tommy has joined forces with two of his brothers to launch a new bar and restaurant in Hull. Aptly named The Barrow Brothers, Tommy has revealed details of his new venture, which could well be named as a nod to his dad's fruit and veg stall in Hull city centre. Although the location of the bar has not been revealed, photographs on his Twitter page show the three brothers walking in Peaky Blinder-esque outfits down, what appears to be, Humber Street. The bar is expected to open on Saturday, June 30 and the brothers are determined to make it a huge success. Tommy has taken to Twitter under The Barrow Boys to release details of his latest challenge. He tweeted: "Ain't gonna be a gaff like it in Hull that I promise."
