Amanda Mesler appointed chair of Swedish fintech Minna Technologies
Minna Technologies, a Swedish fintech focused on subscriptions management, has appointed Amanda Mesler as chairwoman.
The fintech says the appointment comes at “a pivotal point of Minna’s hyper-scale”. Last year the company experienced 2,500% growth, and its next step is further expansion across the wider banking and merchant network as it looks to create “the genius infrastructure that empowers everyone”.
Melser is based in the UK and has over 25 years of experience in banking, payments and financial technology. Most recently, she was CEO at merchant paytech Cashflows, and before that she was CEO of cross-border payment provider Earthport (sold to Visa in 2019). She also had a brief stint at banking tech heavyweight Finastra (Misys at the time) as chief operating officer, and held senior roles at Microsoft, Logica and KPMG.
As a keen runner, she has completed marathons in every continent and completed a half marathon every month during COVID.
Minna was founded in 2016 and has major European retail banks such as Swedbank, Danske Bank, ING and Lloyds Banking Group on its client list. It says around 20 million people benefit from Minna’s subscription solutions.
Last year, it completed a €15.5 million Series B funding round. This year, it plans to move into the US and Australia.
