MollieAmsterdam-based financial services provider Mollie has announced the appointment Koen Köppen as its new CEO. Köppen, previously the CTO of Klarna for five years, joined Mollie as CTO in May to support its expansion into financial services.

In his new role, he will drive Mollie’s mission to simplify complex financial services and level the playing field for small-and medium-sized e-commerce companies taking on larger competitors.

Köppen’s appointment is conditional on approval by the Dutch Central Bank and on the advice of Mollie’s Works Council. Shane Happach, Mollie’s current CEO, is leaving the company to take up a leadership role in Asia.

An important part of Köppen’s role will be to increase the pace of product development and delivery, having previously turned Klarna into a product delivery machine.

“We are delighted to be welcoming Koen into a new and elevated role. We have been very impressed by Koen’s achievements and drive over the last eight months. His promotion is richly deserved and we are confident in his ability to lead Mollie’s further growth and evolution,” said Eli Leenaars, Chair of Mollie. “Shane can be proud of the company he leaves behind, leading our Series C funding round and our move into financial services. We wish him the very best in his new role.”

Founded in 2004, the Mollie facilitates companies of all sizes with fast and flexible financing and an easy-to-use payments API that offers multiple payment methods. Mollie has over 130,000 customers and an international team of more than 750 employees. It has offices across Europe, including Amsterdam, Lisbon, London, Munich, and Paris.
