Zimpler appoints Jonathan Hjelmåker as Head of Operations. Jonathan has a solid track record as a management and compliance consultant for the financial industry and as a manager at Bambora and Ingenico (now Worldline). With his appointment, Zimpler aims to keep delivering the best possible customer experience and position itself at the forefront of the fight against financial crime.
“Zimpler is currently in a very exciting phase, and it is great to be part of its journey.We are establishing all the right priorities, and of course, I want to be part of the process to build Europe's best AML programme,“ said Jonathan Helmåker, Head of Operations at Zimpler.
During 2022, the AML and Customer Service teams recruited 17 people and now make up more than fifteen percent of the company's total number of employees. A figure that Linda Höglund, Chief Operating Officer at Zimpler, believes clearly shows Zimpler's commitment to the area. “AML and compliance are central parts of Zimpler's business and something we will always invest in. To stay ahead, we must have senior competence that supports and develops the business. Welcoming Jonathan to Zimpler gives us just that! With his solid competence and experience, Jonathan will be a key player in how we work and deliver to our customers, partners and legislators,“ said Linda Höglund, Chief Operating Officer at Zimpler.
Jonathan will lead Zimpler's operational work with, among other things, the AML and Customer Service teams. He will also manage cross-functional teams and handle a large part of the operational management for risk and compliance. “My vision as Head of Operations is to create an efficient and safe operation for our employees, customers and partners. Compliance and simplicity are prerequisites for the customer to feel satisfied and secure. Therefore my focus will be on creating an environment where we have strong internal collaboration, put the customer first and ensure that we have efficient and digitised processes,“ said Jonathan Helmåker, Head of Operations at Zimpler.
