By Joy Dumasia
Tink the Open Banking platform has appointed Rowan Taylor as its Chief Revenue Officer (CRO). London-based Rowan joins Tink from AWS, where he spent more than five years leading global financial services sales teams. His 26 years of experience in banking technology also includes roles at Gartner, KPMG and Accenture.
In the newly created role of CRO, Rowan will be responsible for driving integration between all revenue-related functions at Tink, including sales, marketing, customer support and pricing.
Rowan Taylor, CRO at Tink, said: “The Swedish technology sector has a strong reputation for producing some of the leading, most cutting edge fintech propositions. I’m looking forward to helping Tink continue its expansion across Europe, building high-performance teams that can serve complex customers, enabling them to develop rich propositions for their end-users. Open banking is still in its infancy and has been transforming the financial services industry in bites. But now is the time to turn this change into a wave by being able to work with the largest organisations at scale – and cementing Tink’s position as the predominant open banking platform in all of our chosen markets.”
Daniel Kjellén, co-founder and CEO of Tink, added: “Rowan brings valuable experience of creating and growing high-performing teams, combined with a deep understanding of our customers and the transformation that’s evolving in financial services across Europe. I’m proud to have someone of Rowan’s calibre joining Tink for the next exciting phase of our journey.”
Recently, IBS Intelligence reported that Visa today announced it had signed a definitive agreement to acquire Tink, a European open banking platform. Visa will pay total financial consideration of €1.8 billion, including cash and retention incentives, for the acquirement.
