KodyPay, a fast-growing payments FinTech committed to bringing fast and easy payment acceptance to brick and mortar businesses, announces the executive hire of Sophie Haagensen as Chief Operating Officer (COO).
As the former Head of Strategy and Planning at Atom Bank, Haagensen played a significant role in securing Atom’s banking license and was Programme Director for its launch. Before joining Atom in 2014 and supporting the start-up’s rapid growth from a team of just six to 430, Haagensen was previously the deputy director of the North East LEP.
The appointment reflects KodyPay’s broader team expansion. The company continues to scale up with customers now located across 15 cities in the UK, executing on a mission to deliver hardware-free payment acceptance that will save both consumers and businesses time whilst reducing overall cost.
Co-Founder and CEO Yoyo Chang commented: “I am super delighted to welcome Sophie into our team. She has an incredible amount of experience scaling products and building out operational processes. I am honoured that she has chosen to join us, and I know she’ll be instrumental as we expand across the UK.”
Sophie Haagensen commented: “I’m thrilled to be joining the incredibly talented team at KodyPay at this exciting time of rapid growth. In-person payments continue to lag online payments for speed and convenience, and I believe KodyPay has the vision and the execution capability to change this. I’m delighted to join them in this quest, and the opportunity to build and grow another successful FinTech is a genuine privilege.”
