Tuum names new chief executive officer

Tuum, an Estonia-based banking platform, has announced Myles Bertrand as its new chief executive officer.  

In his new role, Bertrand will focus on expanding Tuum’s client base and product offering, growing the team, and extending its international footprint to become a “market leader” in core banking.  

Bertrand joins from global B2B digital micropayments platform DT One, where he was chief revenue officer.  

Prior to this, Betrand was managing director at Mambu APAC, where he helped to grow the business across the region. 

Founded in 2019, Tuum provides a modular platform, including core banking, payments and lending to banks, fintechs and SMEs.  

Previously known as Modularbank, the fintech rebranded in 2021 as Tuum, which means “core” in Estonian. 

Tuum’s customers include LHV UK, a provider of banking services to fintechs, such as Airwallex, Coinbase and Wise.

On his new position, Bertrand commented: “Tuum has developed a highly scalable and functionally rich platform, allowing banks to capitalise on the transformation that is occurring in the banking industry.  

“I am passionate about core banking technology and the impact it will have in transforming the financial services world as we know it.  

“To rejoin this industry as head of the most forward-thinking company in this field is incredibly exciting and I look forward to taking Tuum to the next level.” 

Margus Uudam, founding partner at karma.vc and chairman of Tuum’s board, said: “Demand for next-generation, core banking technology is growing rapidly. 

“Myles’s expertise in this area and in managing global expansion will be a huge asset to Tuum as we seek to build on our leadership in the Nordic market to become a global leader in core banking.”
