Oliver Prill – CEO @ Tide

Oliver joined Tide in 2018 and has led its rapid scaling into the UK’s leading business financial platform. He has over 20 years leadership experience in financial services, having worked across the banking and insurance sectors.

In many of his roles, Oliver has worked closely with small business owners and has always been inspired by their energy and passion. However, he knows that for too long they have been let down by traditional banks.

Oliver is adamant to put founders at the forefront of Tide’s agenda and bring a better business banking alternative to small businesses for good.
