Global Payments Fintech iBanFirst Appoints New Chief Operations Officer

Julien Molez joins iBanFirst as Chief Operations Officer and becomes a member of the company’s Executive Committee (EXCO).

With nearly 20 years of experience in consulting, technology, and artificial intelligence within leading financial institutions, Julien will “leverage his expertise to contribute to the operational excellence that has been a cornerstone of iBanFirst’s success.”

After graduating from École Centrale de Paris, Julien started off his career “as an engineer at IBM.”

Over the following seven years, he honed his expertise “in the financial services sector working for consulting firms.” In 2014, he joined Société Générale, “where he played a prominent role as an associate director in the internal consulting department, before being appointed in 2019 as Head of Data and Artificial Intelligence Strategy for the entire group.”

As he takes on the responsibility for all operations at iBanFirst (Know Your Customer processes, transaction monitoring, payments and foreign exchange back-office, banking relationships, and liquidity providers), Julien will “apply his experience to shape an even more efficient and automated operational model, aimed at simplifying the customer experience while supporting iBanFirst’s growth across its various markets.”

Julien Molez expressed his enthusiasm about joining iBanFirst as Chief Operations Officer, said:

“I’m excited to take on the role of Chief Operations Officer at iBanFirst. I am proud to be a part of an ambitious company that already boasts more than 350 talents and is revolutionizing the international payment experience for businesses every day. Leveraging my extensive banking and technological experience, especially in AI, I will work to solidify an extremely streamlined and highly automated operational model at iBanFirst for its clients.”

According to Pierre-Antoine Dusoulier, Founder and CEO of iBanFirst, said:

“Julien’s integration represents a significant strategic milestone for our company. Our constant presence in the ‘Financial Times 1000’ ranking of Europe’s fastest-growing companies over the past 5 years legitimizes us as a new-generation alternative for international payments. This strong and sustainable growth is largely owed to the trust and loyalty of our clients. Julien will be dedicated to facilitating innovation to maintain this level of satisfaction well above industry standards.”

Founded in 2016, iBanFirst has reportedly “established itself as the leading alternative for businesses that trade and carry out international payments.”

iBanFirst claims that it “offers a next-generation cross-border payment experience that combines a powerful platform and the support of FX experts.”

With iBanFirst, executives and finance teams can get direct access “to currency markets, receive, send and track payments and develop tailored hedging strategies.”

With more than 350 employees in 10 European countries, “processing a volume of transactions worth more than €1.4 billion each month, and listed by the Financial Times as one of Europe’s fastest growing companies, iBanFirst became in less than 10 years a trusted partner for SMEs across borders.”

iBanFirst has the financial backing of “the French public investment bank (bpiFrance), European venture capital leaders (Elaia, Xavier Niel), and the American investment fund Marlin Equity Partners (more than 8 billion dollars of capital under management).”

Regulated by the National Bank of Belgium as a payment institution, iBanFirst is authorised to operate “throughout the European Union.” Member of the SWIFT network and SEPA certified, iBanFirst “holds AISP and PISP accreditations under PSD2.”
