Stacey Gower

I joined Starling in July 2019 as a Technology Project Manager with a background in data rationalisation at J.P. Morgan and machine learning for customer onboarding at Credit Suisse.

In my current role, I am the linchpin between engineering, operations, design, marketing & legal teams to bring Starling’s technology projects to life, from conception to launch.

I began my career as an accountant working in reinsurance, which regularly involved hours and hours of manual spreadsheet updates. My lightbulb moment came after one particularly tough month where I had worked 19 days straight (weekends included!) on a reconciliation piece. After that, I took a deep dive into spreadsheet modelling and looked for ways to automate processes, run more regular checks and leverage technology to ensure we had minimal month end surprises. I was hooked and haven't looked back since.
