We fully respect and support Eugene’s decision to step down and prioritise personal matters at this time.”

Mambu has an immense opportunity to continue disrupting the financial services market and to delight our customers and their customers with better financial experiences.”

As Fernando is “a technology and product leader with more than 20 years of experience in various organizations, including Microsoft and Amazon. Fernando joined Mambu in June 2022, moving from Amazon Web Services, where he was the General Manager of AWS Fargate and Amazon Linux.”

As CPTO, Fernando has “demonstrated exceptional technical expertise and a deep understanding of the fintech landscape.”
