Airwallex is pleased to announce the hiring of its new SVP Sales of Europe, Nigel Thacker, to drive the company’s expansion in Europe and the UK.
This comes after Airwallex’s recent record US$160 million Series D fundraising in April. A proportion of the funds are being used to support its growth in the UK and mainland Europe; with plans to hire 50+ new talent in the region by 2021, Thacker’s hire being one of many to come. Alongside James Butland, VP of Global Banking, Thacker will lead the charge on expanding the European team and further cementing Airwallex’s presence and status in the UK and Europe.
Jack Zhang, CEO and Co-Founder of Airwallex, said: “Having Nigel join the team not only solidifies our commitment to the UK and European markets but also – through his experience and connections – allows us to ensure we’re offering the very best features and partnerships which are of genuine demand to our growing customer base in the UK and Europe.”
Thacker has had an extensive career in the financial industry with more than 20 years of experience. Prior to Airwallex, he was formerly SVP of Sales at Adyen where he grew the team and succeeded in hitting the target income while dealing with extremely complex customers.Click below to share this article
