Curve, a banking platform that consolidates multiple cards and accounts into one smart card and even smarter app, has appointed former PayPal executive, Scott Weller, as its first CFO.
According to AltFi, Weller has worked across the U.S., Asia, and Europe. He also was previously Head of European Pricing at PayPal and led the company’s business development following its separation from eBay in 2015. As CFO, Weller will be responsible for expanding Curve’s finance function as well as financial planning. Speaking about Weller’s appointment, Shachar Bialick, founder and CEO of Curve, reportedly stated:
“Scott’s experience taking teams and businesses like ours to the next level, in addition to his unique knowledge of the payments landscape, make him the ideal candidate to lead our finance function and advance Curve’s mission to converge the fragmented world of money, leading our customers to a healthier financial life.”
Weller further added:
“Curve has established a unique position in the payments space as the first fintech to develop a digital experience that runs ‘over-the-top’ of customers’ fragmented banking relationships and spending use cases. We are solving difficult challenges through real innovation and we have assembled a formidable team to realize Curve’s full potential.”
Founded in 2015, Curve is on a mission to simplify the way people spend, send, see, and save money.
“We are focused on an ambitious opportunity fuelled by a couple of trends starting to play out in the market, from fragmentation of financial services to new convergence layers for the customer experience. We believe the end-game will be a connected world of money, tailored individually for each customer. We’re building this end game – an Operating System for Money.”
