DPL Financial Partners, the Louisville, Ky.-based insurance network for RIAs, has appointed Todd Nuckols to the newly created position of chief technology officer, the company announced earlier this week in a news release.

Before joining DPL, Nuckols was in charge of technology and operations at EnterBridge Technologies, and earlier co-founded Lighthouse Labs, a nationally recognized start-up accelerator.

In his new position, Nuckols will be responsible for the development of innovative tools for the DPL team and its nearly 1,000 RIA members.

Nuckols received a bachelor’s degree in information systems from Virginia Commonwealth University.
