Revolut hires new CRO to scale in the Americas
The digital bank appoints former Happy Money executive as CRO for the Americas as it continues to build out its global presence.
Revolut’s push into North and South America has been bolstered by a new hire, Ibrahim Dusi, who joins the bank as chief risk officer for the Americas.
The global fintech says that Dusi will oversee risk management in the Americas as Revolut continues to build its presence in the US, Mexico, Brazil and other countries across the regions.
A former executive from fintech lender Happy Money, Dusi brings experience ranging across marketing, credit risk, pricing, fraud and operations.
The new CRO said he will aim to “sustainably scale Revolut’s business in the region and make innovative financial products and services accessible for more consumers around the world.”
This new string to Revolut’s bow comes following the bank’s successful launch in the US in March 2020, and subsequent roll-out of money transfer services bridging the US and Mexico.
The bank claims it will soon to be adding unsecured lines of credit to its service offering in the region, with a view to consolidating its position as a superapp that facilitates “financial freedom”.
This is just the latest in a series of moves by the company to grow internationally and further consolidate its business. Already boasting more than 18m customers worldwide, the bank just announced its acquisition of an Indian foreign exchange business and an Australian credit licence, and recently completed its launch as a bank in 10 countries across Europe.
