I am very happy that with Holger we were able to win one of the industry’s top experts for deposits and digital banking as our new COO. With his experience from advising banks at McKinsey and leading one of Europe’s most successful digital banks as board member for comdirect, he is a valuable addition to our leadership team.” Holger Hohrein added: “Deposit Solutions is on the cusp of something big in the European banking landscape. Open Banking fundamentally transforms existing value chains in the financial industry. With its unique technology, Deposit Solutions is a driver of this transformation, and its partnerships with some of the leading global banks are a strong signal to the industry. I am happy to be on board to help drive the future growth of the company.”
