N26 strengthens its French team and opens an office in Paris
The new office in Paris will bring together the management team for France, where N26 has already convinced more than 1.8 million French people in 4 years.
Paris - Four years after the opening of the French market, N26 continues to accelerate its development. With more than 1.8 million French customers already using the mobile bank, N26 continues to build on its success by opening a brand new office in Paris whilst strengthening its management team around the existing General Manager, Jérémie Rosselli.
The General Manager for the French market Jérémie Rosselli has managed the French and BéNéLux region for four years between Berlin, Paris and Brussels. Today, around 250 people from N26's 1,500 employees work for the French market, with the support of an external customer service team based in Poitiers.
A Parisian office to install the N26 France management team
To continue establishing N26 as the French daily bank, N26 is opening its office in Paris to install the France management team. In the current context, the use of these offices remains limited to strict compliance with health protocols and homeworking will be required as long as necessary.
The French team strengthened in 2020 and continues to accelerate growth in 2021
N26 is expanding its local team to support its strong growth in France. In 2020 Jérémie Rosselli - the French General Manager since 2017, and now GM of France and BéNéLux, recruited four experts to structure the French leading team and support it in this new phase of development:
- Christine Massicot, Marketing Director France: With 15 years of experience notably as Brand Manager for Veepee, Christine is a right-handed, Apple user and her favorite Tv-serie is Sherlock Holmes with Benedict Cumberbatch.
- Hélène Sohier, Strategy and Operations Manager: With more than 15 years of experience at BPCE and Barclays, Hélène is right-handed, an Apple user and her favorite Tv-serie is Friends.
- Aurélie Ranouil, Compliance and Financial Security Director: 15 years in the foreign banking sector in France, including Deutsche Bank and QNB where she was compliance and internal control director, Aurélie is right-handed, Android user and her favorite Tv-serie is Suburra.
- Timothée Lenoir, Public Relations Manager: After 8 years in communication agency including 5 years at Elan-Edelman, Timothée is right-handed, Apple user and his favorite Tv-serie is Engrenages.
More simplicity, autonomy and a true proximity to customer service, that is what Frenchs expect from their bank. With this office in Paris and this senior local team, N26 will accelerate the construction of the bank which simplifies their daily life. The 1,850,000 French people who have already adopted us are present in more than 12,000 cities and 40% of them are over 35 years old. 2,000 new customers join us every day, even on Sundays, a sign that N26 is strongly established in France.”, underlines Jérémie Rosselli, CEO of N26 France and BeNeLux.
