By Joy Dumasia
GoCardless, a global FinTech in account-to-account payments, has appointed Alexandra Chiaramonti as General Manager of Southern Europe. Chiaramonti will sustain GoCardless’ rapid growth in the region by continuing to hire top talent to strengthen and accelerate the company’s presence in its existing French market.
Chiaramonti joins GoCardless after serving as CEO at GoBeep, a platform designed to drive retailers’ incremental in-store and online revenue. Before this, she held roles as Director of Global Sales Strategy at Criteo and Managing Director at Teemo. Her experience in scaling and expanding businesses internationally places her in an ideal position to lead the company’s growth.
Alexandra Chiaramonti said: “I’m thrilled to join a rapidly growing company with an amazing team of talented people all focused on making a difference in the payments world. We have a top-notch product solving one of the biggest headaches for merchants: getting paid on time, in a fast and efficient way. Southern Europe represents a tremendous opportunity for GoCardless, and I want us to seize it as soon as possible, becoming the go-to provider when businesses look for a best-in-class payment solution.”
Even Walser, Chief Revenue Officer at GoCardless, said: “We are opening up significant new market segments with open banking, including B2C subscriptions, which will further strengthen our growth in the region. Now is the time to bring in a leader who can help us scale the organisation in this market, and Alexandra is the perfect fit.”
