What is your role?
Bank Relations Specialist
Where do you come from?
I'm half-Swedish and half-American. I grew up in Philadelphia for the most part but also spent time in Dalarna and some places in the U.S., Canada, and Switzerland.
What is your professional background?
Most recently I part of Antler's (early-stage VC) Stockholm cohort in their Founder's Program where a co-founder and I were working on our own startup idea. Before that, I worked for Mitigram, a trade finance fintech, as a Relationship Manager working with banks and corporate clients around the world.
Why did you choose to work at Zimpler?
I wanted to work for a fast-growing company in a rapidly evolving industry. I also wanted to find a company where company growth also entails opportunities for personal growth, and Zimpler fits what I was looking for!
What challenges do you face in your new role?
Building trust and relationships with banking counterparts takes time, and especially in new markets. At the same time, we're growing very rapidly so my role will require a lot of persistence and ingenuity in order to make things happen as fast as possible on the banking front.
