Curve chief operating officer Nathalie Oestmann is leaving the fintech after two and a half years.
Oestmann, a long-standing finance executive, announced her decision to exit the “financial super app” in a LinkedIn post.
She said: “When I joined Curve 2.5 years ago, I had no idea how challenging and rewarding being in a fintech could be. It has been a remarkable journey as we have navigated Brexit, Wirecard, and covid while scaling to a global, multi-product platform.
“I am grateful to all the talented employees and partners that I have had the privilege to work alongside as we overcame obstacles and achieved success together.
“However, I have decided that the time is right for me to leave Curve and after a short break I will make my next move.”
Before joining Curve, Oestmann spent 15 years at American Express in the US, Europe and the UK in a variety of roles, then went on to head up operations at Samsung Pay.
In her role at Curve, Oestmann had a wide-ranging brief and was responsible for several areas including customer experience, business development & partnerships, brand, PR, marketing, analytics and risk and compliance.
She said: “I scaled up a lot at Samsung, but it was an already established business unit. So, this is my first real scaleup, it’s great to be able to put your stamp on something.”
Curve did not reply when asked about details of Oestmann’s replacement.
