UK FinTech Curve hires former PayPal Finance Director as CFO
Posted on July 29, 2020 by Alistair Hardaker
UK FinTech Curve, which consolidates cards in to one card and app, has appointed Scott Weller as its first Chief Financial Officer.
Weller brings experience from PayPal, where he was one of the first members of its strategic finance function, and played a role in next-generation business development initiatives and PayPal’s separation from eBay in 2015.
In 2017, Weller relocated to Europe to build PayPal’s pricing strategy organisation across its Europe, Middle East and Africa markets.
He will now be responsible for scaling Curve’s finance function as the complexity of the company’s financial planning and operations increases.
“We are delighted to welcome Scott to complement one of the best leadership teams in European fintech” said Shachar Bialick, Founder and CEO of Curve.
“Scott’s experience taking teams and businesses like ours to the next level, in addition to his unique knowledge of the payments landscape, make him the ideal candidate to lead our finance function and advance Curve’s mission to converge the fragmented world of money, leading our customers to a healthier financial life.”
Weller added: “I’m so excited to join Curve at this inflection point in the company’s growth journey. Curve has established a unique position in the payments space as the first fintech to develop a digital experience that runs ‘over-the-top’ of customers’ fragmented banking relationships and spending use cases.
“We are solving difficult challenges through real innovation and we have assembled a formidable team to realise Curve’s full potential.”
Weller is the latest appointment for Curve, which recently welcomed Eyal Goldberg as VP, Machine Learning, and Amanda Orson as VP, Head of North America, to its leadership team.
