N26 has appointed Thomas Grosse (pictured above) as its new chief banking officer.
He will join the mobile bank in October and report directly to Maximilian Tayenthal, co-founder and CFO at N26.
Thomas will join from Google, where he serves as an industry leader for banking and fintech.
In this role, he is responsible for cooperation and partnerships with German banks and fintechs.
Prior to this, Thomas held positions at Deutsche Bank and Wüstenrot Bank AG.
At N26, he will oversee the set-up of regulated N26 banks and bank partnerships within the N26 group.
“Thomas is an important addition to the team as we look to the future of N26,” said Maximilian.
“With our recent entry into the US market, N26 is just at the beginning of [its] journey to [becoming] a truly global bank.
“With his deep experience and proven track record in both tech and banking, Thomas is a perfect fit for N26.
“We are very happy to have him on board to support us in building a bank the world loves to use.”
Thomas added: “This is a hugely exciting time for the industry, where the worlds of banking, technology and innovation are converging to give people the power to live and bank their way.
“N26 is at the forefront of this, and I am thrilled to join them in their effort to deliver the most flexible banking experience in the world.”
