Head of European Sales
Active in FinTech since 2003, having a technical background in computer science. She is on the board of Allevo since 2016, focusing on strategizing and finding new business opportunities.
She has an open heart for finding custom solutions to very specific customer problems and for making sure we deliver excellent products and services.
She is passionate about solving financial inclusion and driving more transparency in banking. I'm also an advocate of open-source software and business ethics.
She has closely worked with FinTechs early and growth-stage startups as part of a global startup program between 2013 and 2019. She participated at various industry-focused conferences and events (Sibos, Innotribe, Next Bank, Money2020, SWIFT Business Forums and Regional Conferences, Startupbootcamp Fintech, FinTechStage, Finextra Future of Money, Internet & Mobile World etc), gaining access to a vast network of key influencers of the FinTech ecosystem.
In a nutshell: "Geek with social skills".
