The German challenger N26 has introduced changes in the leadership team with two new C-Level hires.
Adrienne Gormley is joining the company as COO, replacing Martin Schilling who left the company in March this year. The second one is Diana Styles, who will become N26’s chief people officer.
Gormley will be responsible for overseeing the company’s customer service, business operations, service experience and workplace divisions and will be based in Berlin and report to the company’s co-founder and chief financial officer Maximilian Tayenthal.
She has also worked in the tech sector for 20-years already for companies like Google or Dropbox where she served as vice president of global consumer customer and head of Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
“I’m thrilled to be joining N26 at a time full of opportunity. With more people turning to digital banking than ever before, I believe that we can be the first to pioneer a truly world-class, fully-digital service experience in banking that can set the standard for the future of this industry,” said Gormley.
“N26 has been on a truly incredible journey to transform an industry as a disrupter, challenger and pioneer. Having grown its team to a 1,500-strong workforce of 80 nationalities in just five years, I’m extremely excited to further strengthen the N26 culture and talent pool and build a world-class employee experience that matches the organization’s next chapter of transformational growth and change,” said Styles.
“Both Diana and Adrienne are accomplished leaders, with proven track records in their respective fields and a true belief in the N26 vision to transform banking for the better,” said Maximilian Tayenthal, chief financial officer and co-founder of N26.
These appointments follow N26’s recent announcement of Georg Hauer as the new general manager of N26’s operations in Ireland, along with Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
