Mollie Strengthens Supervisory Board with the Appointment of Christoph Röttele

Mollie, one of the fastest growing financial services providers in Europe, today announced the appointment of its new supervisory board member, Christoph Röttele, who will help to support and shape the future development of Mollie. Christoph was previously the CEO of price comparison portal, CHECK24, for over six years. In this role, he both founded and supervised C24 Bank, a fully owned CHECK24 subsidiary and BaFin regulated consumer bank.

Prior to this, Christoph was a partner at CVC Capital Partners. He has also held various executive and non-executive management positions at global investment firm, Permira, for four years. Christoph also serves as a current member of the supervisory board of luxury real estate firm, Engel and Völkers.

“We are delighted to welcome Christoph to our team,” says Eli Leenaars, Chairperson of the supervisory board at Mollie. “I truly believe that Christoph’s extensive background in building and scaling high-growth regulated companies will make an important and valuable contribution to Mollie’s future development.”

With the mission to become the world’s most loved financial services provider, Mollie has had several high-profile and world class C-level appointments to accelerate its growth in 2022. Mollie recently hired Klarna’s former CTO, Koen Köppen, joining Mollie as its new CTO and Michaela LeBlanc Weber, ex-Worldpay, who recently joined the company as its VP of Partnerships.

“We look forward to working with Christoph and to benefit from his vast experience as an executive and non-executive board member,” says Shane Happach, CEO at Mollie. “Mollie’s current supervisory board includes some incredible talent and experience. The addition of Christoph’s specific knowledge of the DACH market will help us to continue to grow our footprint in Europe and further our ambition to simplify complex financial services for companies of all sizes.”

Christoph’s term will last for four years and he joins Eli Leenaars (Chairperson), Miriam van Dongen (Vice-Chairperson), Teun van Rappard and Muz Ashraf on Mollie’s supervisory board.
