Stockholm-based instant payments provider Brite has hired Lisa Edström as its new compliance director.
Edström’s recruitment underpins the fintech’s “compliance-first approach to payments innovation”.
Brite Payments, hot on the heels of 12 months of hypergrowth and a rebrand, has secured a senior compliant executive in Edström.
She has held senior compliance positions at payments and financial services businesses including GE Capital, Klarna and most recently Zettle (formerly iZettle).
In her new role, Edström (pictured) will lead Brite’s global compliance function throughout its ambitious growth strategy.
Commenting on Edström’s appointment, Lena Hackelöer, founder and chief executive officer at Brite Payments, said: “I first met Lisa when we worked together at Klarna, and I am so pleased that she is joining our team at Brite. Lisa’s arrival is crucial to our expansion plans, to ensure that our solutions adhere to all regulation and compliance requirements.”
“Her move is a testimony to Brite’s second-generation approach, as she contributes a wealth of highly relevant experience in international payments giants.”
