Early Monzo employee Tristan Thomas to depart after five years at the digital bank
Thomas joined the bank when it had less than 15 employees in September 2015.
Thomas joined the digital bank all the way back in September 2015, when there were fewer than 15 employees and it still went by its first moniker, Mondo.
The outgoing head of marketing, who leaves Monzo on good terms, reportedly announced his departure internally and will take an active role in recruiting his replacement.
During his time at Monzo, Thomas also oversaw Monzo’s record-breaking crowdfunding campaign, which still holds the record to this day of the most investors and the largest amount raised in a crowdfunding campaign in the UK.
Over the past few months, Monzo has experienced a significant shift in its management team.
Similarly, co-founder and deputy CEO Paul Rippon left the digital bank in January to spend more time alpaca farming with his wife.
Monzo has also added to its management team, with US CEO TS Anil assuming the role of group CEO just six months after joining the bank and in May 2020, Monzo appointed former Amex exec, Sujata Bhatia as its COO.
Last month, the challenger bank also appointed former Tandem Bank chief growth officer Kunal Malani as Monzo’s new head of borrowing, following Monzo’schief credit officer Tim Trailor leaving the bank for alternative lender Capital on Tap.
