WARSAW, Poland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Patrick Koeck, the new CEO of Creamfinance as of 15th January, has set a goal to expand the business consistently at around 20% per annum and aims to grow sustainably above €100M annual revenue within two years despite the complex regulatory landscape.
“Staying ahead of ever-changing regulations is tough and operating across EU and Latam requires a lot of effort. Strong focus on operations and a steady launch of our full product offer across all of our markets is in my view critical at this stage of our company’s growth,” Koeck commented.
The company is said to have gone through a hyper-growth phase having raised over EUR100M in funding with over 3.6M registered users and EUR700M in issued loans across 7 countries. It has now entered a mature state where the key focus is set on risk management, operational excellence and efficiency. The skillset of the new CEO is expected to enable Creamfinance to grow steadily and consistently.
Koeck has previously worked as a Chief Operating Officer, being part of the company’s core team for over 6 years.
“It is an honor to gain confidence from the co-founders, who have been great mentors to me, to lead Creamfinance to the next level. I am looking forward to cooperating with the team to pursue significant growth opportunities ahead and I am certain that it will lead to stable long term profits,” Koeck said in a recent statement.
The former CEO, Matiss Ansviesulis and the Chairman of the Board, Davis Barons, reflected that for the past 8 years Creamfinance has been their life with many ups and downs. During that period they have not only built a sizeable business, but were also very fortunate to have worked with some very talented people from all over the world. “However, now we recognize that the team we have built is capable of taking the company to the next level on its own. We feel that our company is well positioned,” Ansviesulis concluded.
The company stated that both co-founders remain with Creamfinance as Board Members and will continue working on creating new business opportunities.
