CurveLondon-based FinTech Curve has announced the appointment of Cuong Do as an independent Board director. The FinTech recently finished its Series C investment round of $95 million led by IDC Ventures, Fuel Venture Capital and Vulcan Capital, with participation from OneMain Financial and Novum Capital.

Shachar Bialick, Founder and CEO of Curve, said, “We are delighted to welcome Cuong to Curve’s Board. His extensive experience across key industries, most recently with Samsung, is an ideal fit for us. As the financial environment continues to evolve globally, and as Curve continues to grow, Cuong’s expertise in developing and implementing global business strategy will help position and support Curve to deliver long-term value as it matures. Cuong will work closely with myself and senior management to ensure we continue to build our innovative platform, and meticulously execute our strategy.”

Previously, Cuong was the President of the Samsung Global Strategy Group, where he was responsible for developing and executing an enterprise-wide strategy and building out Samsung’s business plans.

He was also a Senior Partner at McKinsey & Company, where he helped to construct its healthcare, high tech and corporate finance practices.

Speaking on his appointment Cuong said, “In my career leading strategy for some of the world’s most forward-thinking firms, I’ve had the pleasure of engaging with many high-growth companies. What stood out to me about Curve, and why I didn’t hesitate to say yes when Shachar asked me to join the Board, was the team’s impressive execution so far, and Curve’s vision of providing consumers with a central point of access to their finances. The ability to bring together your finances will bring comfort, convenience and control to consumers in the UK, Europe and the US. I’m excited about Curve’s long-term vision, and very much look forward to helping the company achieve its extraordinary potential.”
