Digital bank N26 has announced that its Chief Product Officer, Gilles BianRosa, will be appointed to the Supervisory Board of N26 AG. BianRosa has held the position of Chief Product Officer since 2021 and will transition to his new board role in September. He will also step away from his duties on the executive leadership team to become the Chief Operating Officer at a US-based company.
During his time at N26, BianRosa has built a strong and high-performing Product and UX team, consisting of over 100 employees. He has worked closely with nearly 700 engineers and developers in the digital bank’s technology division. Together, they have launched several important products, including N26 Crypto, interest-bearing Savings, and local products such as Bizum in Spain and iDEAL in the Netherlands. They have also implemented elements to improve the scalability of the N26 platform with automation, intelligent KYC and AML solutions, and data-based fraud prevention models. BianRosa has also developed a long-term product strategy and roadmap for the digital bank.
BianRosa expressed his confidence in N26’s ability to lead change in the banking industry, stating that he looks forward to contributing to the company’s goals in his new capacity as a member of the Supervisory Board. Marcus W. Mosen, Chair of the Supervisory Board, welcomed BianRosa’s addition to the board, highlighting his perspective focused on product innovation from a global lens.
N26 CEO Valentin Stalf expressed his happiness that BianRosa will remain closely connected to the company despite leaving his operational role. As a member of the Supervisory Board, BianRosa will continue to play a role in steering N26’s product-led culture. He will hand over his responsibilities to other leaders within his function until a permanent successor is appointed.
