This occupies an important position that was advertised in May 2020. However, N26 is still looking for a product manager – the last vacant position in management. The digital bank has lost many executives in the past year and it was often difficult to find a proper replacement for them.

Jan Kemper has decades of experience leading and building finance and operations teams under his belt, as well as a strong background in M&A and IPO.

He also served as Group CFO at German DAX 30-listed entertainment company ProsiebenSat.1 Media SE from 2017 to 2019, Jan was most recently Managing Director at Omio among other previous professional experiences.

Maximilian Tayenthal, co-CEO and co-founder of N26: “I’m very happy to welcome another seasoned leader to the N26 family. Jan’s track record in scaling companies from start-up through IPO will be invaluable as we set in motion our plans for the future.”

Jan Kemper: “It’s a really exciting time to be joining N26, a dynamic and successful disruptor in the finance industry with the opportunity to provide radically better banking for millions. I look forward to working with their team of leaders and innovators as we accelerate N26 towards its growth ambitions in the coming years.”
