Tom Holt

Tom is Pragma’s CEO

Tom became CEO in 2015. He drives Pragma’s growth both in the UK and overseas.

A London Business School alumnus, Tom started his career at HSBC, then moved to Nectar, UK’s largest loyalty card scheme, where he led large strategic retail partnerships. At Pragma, Tom leads our relationship with many of our investment clients and oversees many of the firm’s projects.

Out of the office, his young family gets Tom’s complete attention, be it a picnic in the park, a trip to one of London’s many museums or just a tantrum at the shops (the girls, not Tom).
