By Joy Dumasia
TrueLayer, Europe’s open banking platform, has announced that Clement Boulais has joined the firm as General Manager for France. A highly experienced commercial manager and FinTech expert, Paris-based Clement will define and manage commercial strategy in France alongside TrueLayer’s Chief Revenue Officer, Max Emilson.
The announcement comes as TrueLayer consolidates its position as the leading open banking platform across Europe, routing more than half of all traffic in the UK, Ireland and Spain. TrueLayer offers 90%+ coverage of French banks delivered through PSD2-compliant APIs and has been active in France by collaborating with innovators such as Revolut.
Clement Boulias, General Manager at TrueLayer, said: “Open banking can solve many customer pain points in eCommerce, B2B, wealth and fintech. The growth of instant, bank to bank payments and the next phase of their evolution becoming embedded across multiple industries makes this an incredibly exciting time to join a market leader in TrueLayer.”
Clement has been an advocate for FinTech and open banking for many years, having been the Head of Startup Engagement at La French Tech, the French Economy Ministry’s organisation for promoting startups in the country. He also acted as a mentor at Techstars in Paris, where he advised firms on fundraising and proposition development. He joins TrueLayer from GoJob, an online recruitment platform specialising in temporary work, where he was VP of Sales.
Max Emilson, CRO at TrueLayer, commented: “TrueLayer is accelerating its European expansion, working with clients to replace costly, poorly converting card payments with instant, secure bank-to-bank payments that deliver a better customer experience. Clement will be playing a critical role for us in France, building on our work with clients such as Revolut. His experience, particularly within the French fintech and startup ecosystem, will be vital as we continue to grow in the country.”
