We at Bitpanda, the leading European digital investment platform, announced our expansions to France and Spain recently. Now, we are proud to announce the appointment of two industry experts as country managers to further lead those expansion efforts.
Giulia Mazzolini recently took on the Country Manager role for France, and Alejandro Zala Navarro is spearheading the expansion to the Spanish market as Country Manager there. In their positions, they will be responsible for consolidating the initial success of Bitpanda’s launch in France and Spain, as well as developing Bitpanda’s presence in the markets.
Bitpanda launched in France in May with a campaign which led to many new registrations, further developing our growing user base. We at Bitpanda are looking forward to Giulia bringing her vast knowledge and experience in the field to help us continue our growth in France.
“I am delighted to join this project and to be part of the leading digital investment platform. We are here to make investing accessible to everyone by simplifying the experience and removing the fear and uncertainty associated with it”, said Giulia.
Giulia is no stranger to fintech as prior to starting at Bitpanda, she spearheaded a program at The Family, helping fintechs and other startups stand out in a hyper-competitive environment and realising growth targets through fundraising in London and Paris.
As of Bitpanda’s launch in Spain in June, Spaniards are now able to set up a Bitpanda account within minutes, completely in Spanish via desktop and the Bitpanda iOS and Android app. The Spanish market is one of the most attractive and important for Bitpanda.
Alejandro has extensive experience in the financial sector in different countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Brazil and Spain. The executive joins Bitpanda from OpenBank, where he has been part of the product development team.
“Our goal for the next phase of Bitpanda’s growth is to become Europe’s leading neobroker by expanding to new markets and new products such as stocks and ETFs, and bringing our investment platform to all customers in all markets, giving everyone access to the financial market from anywhere in the world”, said Alejandro.
Bitpanda has managed to attract 1.2 million users all around Europe since we opened our trading doors in 2014. Our main goal is to make investing accessible for everyone, no matter who you are or where you come from. We lead the industry with regulatory compliance and in each country we expand to we make sure we are fully in accordance with the latest financial regulations, including the recently-introduced AML5.
Bitpanda welcomes the new additions to the team, and we are looking forward to all the amazing things we will achieve together - as a team!
