By Joy Dumasia
TrueLayer, Europe’s open banking platform, announced that Mariko Beising had joined the firm as its new Head of Payment Partnerships, bringing a decade of experience, most recently at Klarna, where she led partnerships with Payments Services Providers (PSPs).
Before TrueLayer, Mariko was Director of Global Partnerships and Head of PSP Partnerships at payments provider Klarna, where she was responsible for Klarna’s global PSP partners, such as Adyen. With a decade of experience in financial services, she also managed sales and payments partnerships at German online bank payment platform SOFORT before its purchase by Klarna in 2014. She played a significant role in the firm embracing PSD2 and open banking, managing multiple PSP partnerships.
As demand for TrueLayer’s open banking payments continues to grow, Mariko will play a critical role in defining and managing TrueLayer’s partner strategy, reporting to the firm’s Chief Revenue Officer, Max Emilson. A highly experienced commercial manager with a deep understanding of European eCommerce and payments, Mariko will collaborate with Payments Services Providers (PSPs) and TrueLayer’s clients to understand their emerging payments needs and use cases.
Max Emilson, CRO at TrueLayer, commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Mariko to further accelerate our growth in Europe and beyond. As more merchants look to implement open banking payments at the checkout, PSPs will play an important role in boosting adoption. Mariko has an outstanding track record in building PSP partnerships from her time at Klarna, along with a deep appreciation and understanding of open banking. Her experience at the leading edge of eCommerce payments provides invaluable insight into how to build TrueLayer’s strategic partnerships which will deliver innovation to merchants and their customers.”
