Michael Young

CEO
MBN Solutions

Michael started MBN to deal with what he perceived as a weakness within the recruitment industry and its lack of deep domain expertise in the areas of data, analytics and technology. 15 years on, MBN is a hugely successful and market leading provider of People Solutions to disruptive and fast moving businesses seeking the very best talent to support their strategic intent. MBN’s success has come about through leadership and passion to collaborate and build communities of stakeholders. In recent years this has been evidenced through organising and facilitating two of the UK’s most compelling networking groups: Scotland Data Science & Technology and Blockchain Scotland Meet-Up Group. With such groups playing a pivotal role in helping to surface unmet clients’ needs and helping to build links with an enhanced candidate pool, he has also used this as a platform for growth by hosting events such as ScotChain, CityChain and Data Talent 2.0. Outside of MBN, he continues to act as an advisor and mentor to a number of start-ups, charities and third-sector organisations and have provided support to many government agencies seeking to understand the evolving complex landscape of Data Talent Acquisition.

We are excited to partner with FinTech-Tables and to assist in the work being done by the team to support the growth of the Fintech sector. Data driven innovation will form a key component when delivering against the key pillars outlined in the Fintech Scotland Research & Innovation Roadmap and the report highlights the importance of data in delivering positive economic, societal, and environmental outcomes in Scotland. If we are to achieve the desired goal of 32,000 new jobs for the sector by 2033, it is important that we come together as a community and consider how we can attract a skilled diverse and inclusive talentpool to Scotland from across the entire globe
