Julian Wheatland was formerly Chairman of SCL Group and COO & CFO of the Cambridge Analytica / SCL group of companies. From 2015 to 2018 he oversaw the growth of the group into one of the most influential data analytics companies in the world, employing ground-breaking analytics technology and targeted communications, which have shaped the advertising industry and the current debate around data privacy and personal data. In 2018, following the media controversy surrounding Cambridge Analytica, Wheatland stepped into the role of Group CEO in order to close the company down.

Wheatland is a veteran of fast-growing technology companies and an expert in the opportunities, pitfalls and dangers that scaling technology businesses can bring. In the fields of data analytics, AI and machine learning, he argues for a greater emphasis to be placed on transparent and ethical corporate oversight which can keep pace with technology, rather than an over-reliance on government and regulatory supervision.

Julian Wheatland now serves as Chief Executive Officer of Cornerstone FS plc, an AIM listed company utilising advanced financial technology to deliver payment and currency solutions to business finance departments. He speaks publicly on managing technology growth, data ethics and “how to avoid becoming the next Cambridge Analytica”.
