Curve has revealed that Nathalie Oestmann has been recruited as its new chief operating officer.

Nathalie has joined from IDEMIA, where she served as senior vice-president of global innovation strategy, marketing, partnerships and M&A for financial institutions.

Prior to that, she served as the head of Samsung Pay Europe, during which time she launched the Samsung Pay solution across six European countries and established partnerships across the payments ecosystem.

In her new role, Nathalie will be responsible for operations and people at the banking platform.

She will also execute the strategy developed by the leadership team in anticipation of its European and American expansion in 2020.

“Nathalie is an incredibly talented and energetic force and it is testament to the heights Curve has reached that we can welcome someone of Nathalie’s calibre to the team at Curve as our new chief operating officer,” said Shachar Bialick, founder and CEO at Curve.

“Nathalie's industry experience and track record make her the ideal choice to propel the team forward as we progress in our mission to move banking to the cloud and accelerate our growth.”

Nathalie added: “I feel privileged to be joining Curve at this pivotal moment as it scales its platform, offering and customer base.

“The company’s vision of moving banking to the cloud is both unique and powerful and it provides its customers with a compelling value proposition with minimal behavioural change.

“My primary objective at Curve will be to ensure we realise our full potential as we take the company into our next chapter of growth.”
