Yolt, the smart thinking money app, has today announced the appointment of Barbora Polachova, from Uber, as Head of Partnerships.
As part of this newly created role, Barbora will lead the development of Yolt Connect, the in-app marketplace in which Yolt offers smart, seamless integrations with partners to empower users to find the right deals for them. She will also be responsible for developing and running strategic initiatives surrounding new and existing partnerships.
Barbora joins Yolt from Uber where she was the Strategic Partnerships Senior Associate. In 2016, Barbora was awarded the prestigious 30 Under 30 award by Forbes, recognising her as one of the most talented individuals from the Czech Republic in changing the world around them.
Yolt’s latest appointment follows several recent partnership announcements including Anorak, Homelyfe, PensionBee, Wealthily, Facilie.it and Selectra. Barbora will be key in driving forward additional integrations that Yolt has planned, empowering users to sync, see and do more with their money across three markets.
Frank Jan Risseeuw, CEO at Yolt, says:
“It has been a very exciting time for growth at Yolt, we have cemented some great partnerships recently and are proud to be empowering over 500,000 registered users across three markets. Barbora’s appointment could not have come at a better time as we continue to build Yolt connect and realise our vision of becoming the only money app users need.
“Barbora is an extremely talented individual who will bring significant strength to our partnerships team. Her remit will include developing the existing relationships we have with our partners as well as seeking out potential new relationships. We’re delighted to have Barbora join the team and look forward to providing our users with even more opportunities to take control of their finances and make smarter decisions about their money.”
