Frankfurt, January 03, 2022
At the beginning of the year, fintus GmbH expands its management team with two seasoned experts from the banking and finance industry. The company is thereby laying another important foundation stone for its growth strategy and the expansion of its innovative low-code banking platform. Since the 1st of January, Patrick Schüler as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Benedikt Schulz as Chief Product Officer (CPO) have joined the five-member management team of the Frankfurt-based fintech.
Benjamin Hermanns, CEO and founder of fintus GmbH, explains: “We are delighted to have acquired two experienced experts in Patrick and Benedikt. This is not only expanding our management team but also puts us in an optimal position for our future growth and further development of our innovative product suite.”
Patrick Schüler, coming from a well-known investment banking boutique and with a background in Large Cap M&A and Transaction Advisory, joins the fintus management team as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Head of M&A. Patrick is not only responsible for the world of numbers, but also contributes his strategic expertise to the international expansion of fintus. His focus is on both organic scaling and an opportunistic buy-and-build strategy. Even before his start as CFO and Head of M&A, Patrick got to know fintus very well. In 2021, as Vice President of the retained investment banking, Patrick advised on the successful search for a strategic partner for future growth and AnaCap’s subsequent majority stake investment in the Frankfurt-based fintech. “I am very excited to be part of such an exciting company and to successfully set up fintus in the fields of finance and M&A”, Patrick comments on his start at fintus.
As a further addition to the management team, Benedikt Schulz starts as Chief Product Officer (CPO). Coming from a market companion, Benedikt has extensive industry expertise and will be responsible for the continuous strategic development of fintus’ innovative low-code banking platform. Through a multitude of successful digitalisation projects in cooperation with national and international banks, the former banker and business psychologist developed a deep understanding of the digital challenges of the banking and finance industry and will therefore perfectly align the roadmap of the fintus suite with the future of digital banking. About his new position, Benedikt says “The innovative products of fintus immediately excited me. The modern low-code approach combined with the high performing and motivated international team are a great opportunity for banks and financial service providers to finally tackle the digitalisation of all relevant areas.”
A total of seven new colleagues start at the beginning of the year in the fintus team. In addition, the company expanded its development capacities with a new development team at a new location in Cluj/Romania. For 2022, the company is planning further organic growth to more than 80 colleagues at the three European locations in Frankfurt, Sofia and Cluj and is setting all signs on “growth”.
