Digital Bank N26 Chief Growth Officer Alexander Weber to Leave His Role By End of June 2023

After 9 years at the company, N26’s Chief Growth Officer, Alexander Weber, will be leaving his role at the end of June “to pursue his own entrepreneurial journey.”

Having joined N26 in 2014 as one of its first team members, Alexander has “been an important driving force behind many of the company’s biggest milestones, including the launch of its 100% digital bank accounts in 2015, obtaining its German banking license in 2016, expanding its footprint to 24 markets globally, and leading the brand’s marketing efforts to help reach over 8 million customers globally.”

Alexander will continue “to work closely with the senior team at N26 to ensure a smooth transition of his duties, while a search for a successor as CMO is ongoing.”

He will hand over leadership of the Global Marketing team “to Vice President of Brand Marketing, Activation and Content, Carine van der Heijden together with Director of Digital Marketing and Global Media, Kertu-Liina Lehismae, in the interim as part of a planned transition that has been underway over the last months.”

As covered, N26 claims it is today “one of the fastest-growing digital banks in the world. As a fully-licensed German bank built on the latest technology, N26 makes banking faster, easier and more trustworthy.”

Founded by Valentin Stalf and Maximilian Tayenthal in 2013, N26 has “welcomed more than 8 million customers in 24 markets to date and has raised close to US$ 1.8 billion from some of the world’s most renowned investors.”

Headquartered in Berlin, N26 says it “has offices in multiple cities around Europe, including Vienna and Barcelona.”

As reported recently, N26 announced the appointment of international regulatory compliance and governance professional Déborah Carlson-Burkart to its Group Supervisory Board.

Déborah will reportedly work closely “with existing board members Marcus W. Mosen, Jörg Gerbig, Dr. Barbara Roth and Dr. Julian Deutz, as well as N26’s senior management team.”

A respected professional in the finance, banking and insurance space, Déborah brings decades of experience “in the legal, corporate governance and compliance fields to her role.”

A qualified lawyer, LL.M. and certified board member, she sits “on the boards of Swiss aerospace innovator RUAG International and insurer VISANA Group.”

Additionally, Déborah is “a guest lecturer in Corporate Governance and Compliance for the University of St. Gallen’s EMBA program and its Swiss Board School.”

She was previously Managing Director and Head Legal at Rothschild Trust Group (Italy and Switzerland), Alstom Switzerland and MicroStrategy (USA).

Déborah will now “occupy board seats in the Supervisory Boards of both N26 AG and N26 Bank AG, and will take over as Chair of the Nomination Committee from Dr. Robert Kilian, who will step down from his role on the board due to a new private venture that would stand in conflict with his N26 mandate.”
