n26Mobile banking platform N26 today announced the appointment of Gilles BianRosa as its Chief Product Officer. Gilles will lead all product teams based across the company’s main offices and technology hubs in Berlin, Barcelona, Vienna and New York. He will be responsible for defining, steering and implementing N26’s global product strategy, with plans to scale the team and N26’s product innovation capabilities in 2021 and beyond. Gilles is set to begin in his new role in the coming months, and will be based out of N26’s headquarters in Berlin.

N26 co-founder and CEO, Valentin Stalf said, “Gilles has a track record of delivering consumer-facing innovation that truly engages, excites and entertains customers. Today, N26 has revolutionized how people relate to their banking experience on an everyday basis. With Gilles on board, we will expand our experience further to being banking that easily connects an account with one’s lifestyle in an even more tangible way.”

N26 Chief Product Officer, Gilles BianRosa said, “After almost two decades in Silicon Valley, I’m very pleased to be joining one of the most dynamic product teams in FinTech globally. I look forward to applying my experience from the world of online consumer services to help N26 continue to connect authentically with its customers. Having already begun to redefine banking for customers, I believe that N26 has a unique opportunity to touch more aspects of daily life with their simple, trusted, and delightful experience.”

Recently, European FinTechs N26 and Raisin expanded their collaboration to address the low-interest rate issue in the German market.
