InDebted, the fast-growing global FinTech aiming to transform the consumer experience of debt, has announced the appointments of Pierre Bergamin as Vice President of Engineering and Roger Almeida as Head of Product. 

Bergamin will ensure that InDebted’s platform is scalable while driving quality across products as the company aims to become the industry standard API for collections. Almeida will oversee the expansion of the product team’s global footprint, including in the UK and European markets, whilst ensuring products always focus on the consumer and how the company can support their debt-free journey.  

A specialist in SaaS & product-led companies, Bergamin joins from Assignar, where he was VP of Engineering from 2019 to 2021 following a period at Learnosity in their engineering team. An experienced leader in product delivery, Almeida previously held the roles of Head of Digital at DNX Solutions and Delivery Lead at Tyro Payments. 

The appointments are part of InDebted’s investment in its product and engineering functions which work closely with consumers and business partners across the globe. The new hires also reflect InDebted’s rapid growth, with the business growing its headcount by 360% in 2021 alone and reaching 248 people in January 2022. This is underpinned by the onboarding of 93 new clients in 2021 across global markets and the completion of its AUD$25 million Series B in July 2021. 

Commenting on the appointments, Josh Foreman, CEO at InDebted, said: “The next 12 months will be crucial for InDebted’s strategy. This means being the most valued debt collection partner to our clients, providing an industry-leading customer experience, and creating a frictionless, agile and scalable product that can sustain our global expansion. We know that having the best talent and leaders on board is the key to delivering on this to help us change the world of consumer debt recovery for good with a long-term vision to how we can improve overall financial wellbeing too.” 

Pierre Bergamin added: “When I met Josh, I really connected with his vision for InDebted and the future of product here. I strongly believe that there’s so much potential for us to build an ecosystem of products that will enable us to truly deliver on our mission and vision in empowering and innovative ways.” 

Roger Almeida further noted: “We are taking the shame and confrontation out of debt. Everybody deserves the opportunity to recover from a financial misstep in a way that is fair, safe and considerate and, most importantly, places their experience at the centre of the process. The opportunity to create change in this space with a unique customer-centric product design is of huge appeal.”
