Open banking platform Yapily has appointmented Caroline Abercrombie as its new chief people officer in its latest edition to its senior team.

Her appointment comes as the company continues to grow both its team and its reach across Europe.

Abercrombie brings more than two decades of experience in growing tech startups to the role, and will now be leading Yapily’s expansion efforts, acquiring new talent and supporting the existing team.

She previously spent almost two years at the leading student affinity network UNiDAYS as VP people, and was global head of people for Verizon digital media services before that.

“Open banking is a budding industry, so it is a very exciting time to be supporting a fast-growing and disruptive team like Yapily in scaling-up and realising its growth ambitions,” Abercrombie said.

“With Yapily’s current focus on rapid growth in the continent as well as in the UK, I look forward to working with a very talented and diverse team to scale up in multiple geographies.”

Abercrombie’s appointment follows the recent hire of Noam Oren as chief technology officer last month, and multiple new strategic partnerships following the company’s acquisition of leading German open banking provider finAPI.

“With a focus on innovation, creativity, and a people-first culture, Caroline will be a valued addition in our mission to grow high-performing teams and nurture talent,” Yapily founder and CEO Stefano Vaccino said.

“As we continue to scale, her expertise will help sustainably drive our growth and support securing industry-leading talent. Our people are central to our success, and Caroline’s work in attracting and retaining top talent will be integral in Yapily’s next chapter of growth.”
