Billhop announced that it has appointed two new hires joining its executive management team Tashi Gauffin as Chief Commercial Officer and Niklas Bothén as Chief Operations Officer. Collectively, Tashi and Niklas carry almost 30 years of working experience, most predominantly within the FinTech industry, having occupied several senior positions at some of the most reputable FinTechs to have emerged out of Sweden over the past decade, including Tink and Bambora.

Tashi Gauffin spent almost five years at Europe’s open banking platform Tink as part of the management team; he was behind the strategy and execution in transforming Tink from a Swedish B2C mobile application to a Pan-European B2B platform. During his time at Tink, the company grew from 20 to 370 people and now covers 18 markets with some of Europe’s most prominent banks and fintechs as customers.

Niklas Bothén brings with him an acute understanding of the payments industry, having played an integral part in developing and executing a go-to-market strategy for Bambora. Bambora, the leading developer of card acquiring and payment software for online payments, Niklas worked as its Head of Commerce Development for six years.

Billhop is a Swedish Payment Institution licensed by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Finansinspektionen) with headquarters in Stockholm. Billhop is authorised to provide payment services on a cross-border basis under the Payment Services Directive.

Sebastian Andreescu, CEO & co-founder of Billhop, said: “What Tashi and Niklas bring – beyond a proven track record of successfully scaling FinTechs – is a really diverse combination of skills which will be instrumental in consolidating Billhop’s footprint as the leader in B2B payment solutions across Europe.”

Recently IBS Intelligence reported that Swedish FinTech Billhop had secured €4 million in a Series A investment round led by FinTech VC Element Ventures. The new funding will be utilised to boost product development, enhance sales, marketing, and customer support functions to meet the demand for working capital financing solutions.
