Where do you come from, what is your background?

"US Military veteran with over a decade of service. I have been living in Stockholm for 5 1/2 years now working in the Fintech industry."

Why did you choose to work at Zimpler?

"I chose Zimpler because it is the underdog in the accounts to accounts payment space, but the potential to build a superior product and therefore surpass its competitors is immense. The amalgamation of talent and ambition is poised to take Zimpler to new heights."

What challenges do you face in your new role?

"The most pressing challenge is to prove to the incumbent banks around the world that we are an ally and should therefore work together to benefit all stakeholders."

Enough business, what do you like to do outside of work?
