Trustly has announced the appointment of two new members to its leadership team. 

Firstly, Annika Poutiainen will be joining the company as Chief Legal Officer. 

Poutiainen has vast experience in regulatory environments and financial companies, holding positions such as Executive Chair of the Council for Swedish Financial Reporting Supervision, Head of Market Surveillance Nordics at Nasdaq and Head of Unit, Prospectuses, Exchanges and Clearing Houses at the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority. She has also been a board member at a number of companies in the financial services and payment industries. 

Also, Georg Kaltenbrunner has been appointed Group Chief Risk & Compliance Officer. 

Prior to this role, Kaltenbrunner was the Group Chief Risk Officer at the Luminor Group and before that also held other positions including Group Chief Operational Risk Officer for Nordea Group and Partner at McKinsey & Company. 

Trustly Group CEO, Johan Tjärnberg, said: “We would like to extend a warm welcome to Annika and Georg, who are a really strong addition to the Trustly leadership team. They join the company at a dynamic and exciting time, and I am confident their respective teams will flourish under their guidance.” 

Poutiainen commented: “I am excited to join Trustly, the innovative account-to-account payment leader with a strong human-centric approach where rules and regulation are seen as crucial enablers and contributors to the company’s success. I am proud to be part of this journey and look forward to working for the continued success of the company.” 

Kaltenbrunner added: “I am thrilled to be joining the success story that is Trustly, where I will be working with the team to build a strong and scalable Risk Management and Compliance platform. This is a crucial step in ensuring Trustly’s business resilience and supporting our long-term ambitions.”   

The appointments of Poutiainen and Kaltenbrunner follows on from the news last month that Trustly had completed its acquisition of SlimPay, a merger which looked to transform recurring payments within Europe.
