Brazilian fintech giant EBANX has recently announced that it has appointed João Del Valle as their new chief executive officer (CEO). He will replace Alphonse Voigt who held the position for the last nine years.
João Del Valle, who is also a co-founder of EBANX, served three years as chief operating officer (COO), preceded by almost seven as the chief technology officer (CTO), according to a press release. Voigt will now head the Board of Directors as executive chairman.
Del Valle said, “EBANX has a unique story and it will be a privilege to lead this next chapter. Our vision of being the best payment provider in Latin America is growing stronger, and always fueling the urge to innovate. The path we want for EBANX is very clear for the three of us, co-founders: focus on the mission of providing access in Latin America, through technology, speed, consistency and quality of execution.”
Under the leadership of Voigt, EBANX established itself as one of the biggest fintech in Latin America with a valuation of over $1 billion, becoming the first unicorn in the southern region of Brazil.
In this regard, Voigt said, “The big dream got even bigger and from now on I take on this new position, helping to envision the next decade of EBANX. And João, our new CEO, is an example of dedication, focus and result orientation. He has a unique capacity to keep the company growing exponentially while projecting our future.”
