Bankable is pleased to welcome Richo Strydom as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO).

Richo is a seasoned financial technology industry executive who brings with him more than 16 years of experience and expertise. He most recently served as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for Solutions and Risk at Credit Suisse where he was responsible for technology strategy, governance and operational risk. He previously held several senior technology management roles at Deutsche Bank AG. He worked within the Investment Banking division and built a global team of 150 staff in 6 cities delivering Risk and P&L technology across Credit, Rates, Equities and Emerging Markets. He eventually moved on to become CTO for Global Wealth Solutions.

Prior to Deutsche Bank, Richo was CTO and Deputy Managing Director of Valtech Ltd (a leading-edge technology consultancy co-founded by Bankable’s founder and CEO, Eric Mouilleron). Richo played a key role in scaling the 16-people team in London to over 120 within 18 months. His leadership was fundamental in transforming Valtech into a global delivery organisation with an additional nearshore and offshore capability in Texas and Bangalore.

Richo’s impressive track record and professional working partnership with Bankable’s founder Eric will be monumental to Bankable.

“It is a pleasure to be working with Richo again. Richo has built and scaled teams globally. He has delivered enterprise scale software solutions within the finance industry, media and the UK Government. As Bankable is experiencing exponential growth, Richo’s contribution will be integral to Bankable’s future success,” said Eric.

Richo said, “Bankable is a disruptive fintech company with a unique and innovative product offering that delivered over 200% growth in 2016. I am thrilled to join this vibrant team and to take Bankable to the next level. Besides, it is great to be working with Eric again.”

As COO, Richo will be responsible for business operations, product development, architecture and implementation. His initial focus will be supporting Bankable’s growth by expanding the team, and developing a scalable and flexible delivery organisation of highly skilled resources to meet the diverse requirements of Bankable’s targeted industry verticals.
