Checkout.com poaches new chief product officer from Novi, Facebook’s fintech arm
The appointment is part of a broader 2021 executive team overhaul at the fintech.
Payments giant Checkout.com has created a new role of chief product officer and hired Meron Colbeci to fill it.
Colbeci joins Checkout.com from Meta (aka Facebook), where he was head of consumer product management at the social media giant’s fintech product group, Novi, which developed its crypto wallet.
His arrival comes at the tail end of a more extensive overhaul of Checkout.com’s executive team, which has this year added a new CFO, CTO, CRO, CMO and CHRO.
“Meron’s experience as a close partner and customer at Novi—and his years with numerous other fintech leaders—means he’s well-positioned to take our product efforts to the next level,” said Checkout.com founder and CEO Guillaume Pousaz.
To start with Colbeci will be based out of the fintech’s San Francisco office, with plans to relocate to Europe next year.
“Having worked with Checkout.com before, I had a good sense of how great the technology was and how capable the team was,” he said.
“As I spent more time with Guillaume and the rest of the leadership team, I was inspired by the focus on building customer-first technologies that will help democratize access to the digital economy.”
