US fintech Trovata has made two key appointments ahead of an expansion into Europe.
Vladimir Pintea has joined the fintech, which automates cash workflows through multi-bank API data aggregation for corporate finance and treasury teams, as vice president of open banking engineering.
Lisa Gutu has taken up the role of vice president of business development.
Both have joined Trovata’s senior team to expand the fintech’s platform with new bank integrations and services to broaden its reach from the US to the UK and EU marketplaces.
Pintea and Gutu (pictured, left and right), who previously led the business and product teams at Salt Edge, “are among the open banking pioneers in the European market”, according to Trovata, contributing significantly to the continent’s evolution from the very first basic, money management, multi-banking pilots to more complex open banking payment and treasury management use cases over the past eight years.
Their experience in product, legislation and a deep understanding of client needs will help expand Trovata’s platform services and add more depth by combining open banking and open finance across Europe.
Commenting on the appointments, Brett Turner, founder and chief executive officer at Trovata, said: “While open banking is nearing a tipping point, Vlad and Lisa have played a big role for the past several years as true pioneers in the space driving change and innovation.”
“I’m thrilled to have them as part of our senior team to help us bridge geographies as a global platform for businesses to freely manage cash.”
