“Klarna will no doubt continue to trailblaze in the world of payments, shopping and banking.”
Klarna’s head of UK Alex Marsh is stepping down from the Swedish ‘buy now, pay later’ (BNPL) firm after four and a half years.
Marsh joined the fintech in 2019 as the chief financial officer for Klarna UK before heading up the UK team for almost three years.
Announcing the news of his departure on LinkedIn, Marsh described his time at Klarna as “an amazing rollercoaster journey”, adding that it was “nothing short of phenomenal”.
He noted that during his time at Klarna, the customer base has grown from 1.5 million to a “staggering” 18 million.
“ I wish you all the very best as Klarna will no doubt continue to trailblaze in the world of payments, shopping and banking,” Marsh wrote.
Marsh shared with AltFi that his immediate plans for the summer include securing further funding to scale Charterpath, a non-profit he co-founded in 2020 connecting accountants and non-profits.
Following a difficult year for his family he also plans to spend the time on an adventure travelling with his children.
“This experience has underlined the importance of prioritising what matters most - our family and loved ones. With mixed emotions it’s time now for the next chapter!” he wrote.
“After four and a half years in a variety of roles at Klarna, Alex has chosen to move on,” a Klarna spokesperson said.
“We are extremely grateful for all that Alex achieved during his time with us and are excited to follow his future journey.”
