EBANX, a technological payment solution provider connecting Latin American consumers to global companies, has announced João Del Valle, co-founder of EBANX as the new CEO.

After more than 3 years as COO, preceded by almost 7 as CTO, he takes over the executive leadership of the fintech, which has been led by co-founder Alphonse Voigt for the past 9 years, since its founding in Curitiba, Brazil. With the change, Voigt will now be the head of the Board of Directors, as Executive Chairman, and Wagner Ruiz, also a co-founder, becomes Chief Risk Officer (CRO), leaving the CFO position to the newly hired Alexandre Dinkelmann, a former executive in the Brazilian BTG Pactual and TOTVS.

As COO, Del Valle led important projects for the fintech’s expansion, such as the ensemble of the global commercial team, the launch of 50 new integrations and payment methods within the company’s B2B solutions portfolio only in 2020, and the Push LatAm, an initiative that is taking EBANX operations to new Latin American countries, including in Central America and the Caribbean.

“EBANX has a unique story and it will be a privilege to lead this next chapter. Our vision of being the best payment provider in Latin America is growing stronger, and always fueling the urge to innovate. The path we want for EBANX is very clear for the three of us, co-founders: focus on the mission of providing access in Latin America, through technology, speed, consistency and quality of execution,” said Del Valle.

Voigt has been EBANX’s CEO since its founding which, during his tenure, exceeded the market value of USD 1 bn, becoming a unicorn in the southern region of Brazil. Now, as Executive Chairman, he will lead the company’s strategic expansion.

“The big dream got even bigger and from now on I take on this new position, helping to envision the next decade of EBANX. And João, our new CEO, is an example of dedication, focus and result orientation. He has a unique capacity to keep the company growing exponentially while projecting our future,” said Voigt.

Alexandre Dinkelmann, who takes on the position of CFO will continue the work of Wagner Ruiz, who will now be focused on the company’s risk management, strategic partnerships and regulatory operation, which are essential pillars in the growth of EBANX. Dickelmann brings to the firm his experience as CFO at TOTVS and Even Incorporadora, as well as a stint at BTG Pactual and his role as a co-founder of the Onyo platform.

“Alexandre’s arrival brings us even more robustness, capacity and talent to maintain the pace of growth and adapt our financial sector to the new moment that EBANX will experience,” said Ruiz.

The new team has the mission of consolidating the firm as the payments leader in LATAM, and to continue to expand the operations that have already given access to more than 70 mn LATAM consumers to some of the largest global brands, such as Uber, Spotify, AliExpress and SHEIN.

“These changes arrive in line with our goals for the next decade. Our success depends on the success of customers in the region and this is our focus. We remain even stronger and more structured to establish the leadership of Latin America in the global market and the leadership of EBANX in the world of payments and technology,” concluded Del Valle.
