As a result of Penta and Qonto joining forces, Torben Rabe, previously Country Director Germany of Qonto, has joined Qonto’s central team as Global Partnerships Director, where he will lead Qonto’s ambitious pan-European partner management program.
"Strong partnerships, and the establishment and development of a stable ecosystem, are important elements of Qonto’s growth strategy - not only in Germany, but in all European markets. I am very much looking forward to my new role and contributing to strengthening the Qonto brand", says Torben Rabe.
Rabe will lead the local partnership teams and continue to drive Qonto’s growth ambitions in Germany, France, Italy and Spain, establishing global partner activities with a focus on new customer acquisition.
Qonto’s German business has been led by Lukas Zörner, VP Germany at Qonto and previously CPO at Penta, since October 2022.
"Torben has delivered strong results in the German market over his last two years with Qonto and has built an excellent team," says Qonto CEO and co-founder Alexandre Prot. " I'm very excited that Torben will now take his valuable experience to the global team, drive our partnerships management in all European markets and further drive Qonto’s ambitious goals for Europe.”
