FinTech firm Revolut hires ‘director of financial crime risk’


London-based FinTech Revolut has made three new senior hires as it expands its senior team.

The firm has announced a Wolfgang Bardorf, previously of Deutsche Bank, as Treasurer.

Stefan Wille, formerly senior VP of finance at N26, has been appointed as Deputy CFO.

Philip Doyle, with previous roles including head of financial crime at ClearBank and fraud prevention manager at Visa, has been appointed the firm’s new director of financial crime risk.

“This year we’ve made some exceptional senior appointments to the company,” said Nikolay Storonsky, Revolut founder and CEO.

“As we continue to strengthen our existing governance and processes we’ve hired some of the most talented professionals, with many years’ experience, delivering world class business practices.

“I’m looking forward to welcoming Philip, Stefan and Wolfgang to Revolut’s executive team and I have no doubt their knowledge will be invaluable as we grow.”

The latest hires are part of a longer spree in previous months.

Richard Davies, previously of HSBC, Barclays and TSB was appointed its COO and Dave MacLean, formerly finance director at Metro Bank, was poached to become the firm’s CFO.

The firm, which began as a currency exchange app, has recently offered start-ups a free account, and has introduced a ‘no fee’ stock trading option.
