The open banking platform TrueLayer continues to strengthen its staff and does so with a Spanish accent. David Exposito has already become the new vice president of sales for the European Union. David, who comes from Amazon and will be based on Madridwill be in charge of commercial operations and business development in the continent.
David is a manager with extensive international experience in over a decade in the payments industry and electronic commerce. He joins the TrueLayer team at a time when the company is growing rapidly in Europe, having announced in February the expansion of its open banking platform’s connectivity for data, verification and payments between accounts to major banks in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland and Portugal. In Spain, TrueLayer covers 99% of the banking market, and is also the only open banking provider that supports app2app processes for all banks.
«The payments industry is undergoing a profound transformation driven by changing consumer expectations, merchant demand, and the emergence of new technologies that can deliver a better experience. Open banking facilitates this transformation through higher acceptance rates, reduced fraud and instant settlement.», affirmed Expósito, who also pointed out that «TrueLayer is at the forefront of that evolution and I am thrilled to be part of that project, as we seek to change the payments industry around the world.».
David, an electronic engineer from the University of Valladolid and an MBA from the London Business School, joins TrueLayer from Amazon, where he has worked for eight years in positions of responsibility, the most recent being responsible for the EU for physical distribution and management of multiple payment products, as the company’s European currency portal. Previously, it was Amazon B2B channel manager in France, Italy and Spain, and previously led the area of corporate alliances in Spain.
A born entrepreneur, David has held positions of high responsibility in multinationals such as Transcom and the European Space Agency, and has successfully founded and sold AdFidelia, a Spanish incentive portal that developed the first Facebook application for the distribution of gifts between individuals and a B2B employee rewards platform.
Max Emilson, Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) of TrueLayer, added: “TrueLayer attracts the best professionals in the global payments industry, bringing together experts from companies like Adyen, Amazon, Klarna and others, to drive open banking forward. David’s business approach, coupled with his experience working with complex international entities, will be critical to us as we accelerate our European expansion.».
The incorporation of David represents another step in TrueLayer’s firm commitment to Spain, a key market for the company’s European expansion, where open banking payments have enormous growth potential.
With teams based in Madrid and Barcelona, the company aspires to lead the acceleration of the use of open banking payments in our country, where the offer is still very limited. After starting its activity in Spain in 2021, TrueLayer already works with clients such as Revolut, Ninety Nine or HeyTrade, and plans to announce new strategic agreements in the coming months.
