London-based challenger bank startup Revolut said it’s hired three senior executives from Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse and ClearBank.

Wolfgang Bardorf, formerly of Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs, is joining the company as treasurer, Revolut said on Friday.

Stefan Wille, a former VP at challenger bank N26 and ex-Credit Suisse banker, has been appointed as deputy chief financial officer and Philip Doyle, formerly of Visa and ClearBank was named as director of financial crime risk. 

The moves follow other recent appointments from top banks including HSBC, TSB Bank and Metro Bank.

Revolut has been beefing up its executive team since facing criticism earlier in the year over a toxic working culture within the fintech, aggressive work practices and lax operating processes.

Nikolay Storonsky said the company was learning from its mistakes and that it “growing up”.

“This year we’ve made some exceptional senior appointments to the company.

“As we continue to strengthen our existing governance and processes we’ve hired some of the most talented professionals, with many years experience, delivering world class business practices.

“I’m looking forward to welcoming Philip, Stefan and Wolfgang to Revolut’s executive team and I have no doubt their knowledge will be invaluable as we grow.”
