Solarisbank enhances management team with the appointment of Chloé Mayenobe as Chief Growth Officer

Berlin/Paris - 23.02.2022. Solarisbank, Europe’s leading Banking-as-a-Service platform, today announced the appointment of Chloé Mayenobe as its new Chief Growth Officer and General Representative. She will join the company on March 1. Mayenobe will strengthen the management team with her prestigious leadership background and deep experience in international growth and scale management. In the newly created position, she will be part of the Extended Management Board overseeing Solarisbank’s international expansion. Subject to BaFin approval, Mayenobe will join Solarisbank’s Management Board in the second half of this year.

Mayenobe’s extensive career in the European payments industry has included roles in governance as well as corporate functions in international environments and transformation phases. Most recently, she served as Deputy CEO of Natixis Payments and Member of the Executive Committee of Natixis. Natixis Payments is a fintech company covering the entire value chain of payments from issuing to acquiring, e-payment to prepaid, including processing. Furthermore, Mayenobe spent over 12 years at Ingenico Group, where she was appointed Vice President Audit and Risks in 2006, before extending her responsibilities as EVP and eventually being appointed as Managing Director Europe for the retail division. In this role she was responsible for more than 1,500 employees and managed €400 million in revenue.

I am very excited to join the Solarisbank team in their inspiring mission to redefine banking. I am impressed by the pace of the growth and want to ensure that this success story continues in the years to come. Solarisbank has the potential to change the entire European financial market. Banking-as-a-service was originally reserved for fintechs, but is now moving into the old economy, which needs to reinvent itself. Retailers and corporates need to reinforce customer loyalty and provide a seamless customer journey – embedding financial services is the ultimate means to that end. One could even say that this is not optional, but mandatory. Chloé Mayenobe, Chief Growth Officer of Solarisbank
