Neyber, the financial wellbeing company, has recruited James Malia, a highly experienced employee benefits expert, as part of its leadership team. As Head of Account Management, James will lead his team to help employers manage complex workforce dynamics and then design bespoke financial wellbeing strategies to increase employee financial resilience.
James has worked in the employee benefits sector for 10 years, running a team of 70 at Sodexo as Director of Employee Benefits and previously as Managing Director at P&MM Employee Benefits.
At Neyber, James will strengthen and lead the Client Relationship team, managing some of the largest and most sophisticated employers in the country, including Royal Mail, Co-op, Asda, Anglian Water, Harrods, UK Power Networks and London City Airport. In its 3 years, Neyber has grown exponentially, now reaching over 1 million employees in over 200 organisations, with workplace financial educational programmes and five borrowing products. James’ remit is to ensure that Neyber’s products and services are fully embedded, supporting each organisation’s workforce.
“To me, Neyber is all about offering genuine, helpful assistance to individual employees and, therefore, their employers. We all have important lives outside of work, so helping someone improve their financial outcome, either by paying less for a loan, saving more or helping them understand their finances better, means they can have the comfort of better financial security. Really, it’s still about the fundamentals, putting money aside, ensuring outgoings are less than income, all in a sustainable plan.”
“I’ve been watching Neyber since it’s beginning and have seen the positive impact it has on employers and their people. Having started my career helping individuals manage their monthly income and outgoings efficiently, joining Neyber is like coming full circle. I’ll be helping large numbers of people, through their employers, to better manage their finances.”
Monica Kalia, Co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Neyber, said:
“James’ appointment comes with real excitement here as his background and credentials are a perfect fit for our culture. He will help drive the Neyber team forward to ensure our clients have all the support they need for employees to be more financially resilient.”
