- As a sales and strategy expert, Stefanie Salata supports the development of sales capacities for the use of organic growth opportunities
- With his experience in M&A, Philipp von Girsewald will accompany the inorganic growth after the recent acquisitions have been successfully completed
Goerlitz, 05.09.2022 | niiio finance group AG (ISIN: DE000A2G8332), software-as-a-service platform for asset and wealth management, has appointed two new members to the advisory board. Since September 1st, 2022, Stefanie Salata and Philipp von Girsewald have been strengthening the niiio team, in particular with their many years of experience in sales and M&A. niiio is thus further intensifying its own activities in order to take advantage of the enormous organic and inorganic growth opportunities in the market for digital asset and wealth management.
In accordance with its roll-up strategy, niiio sees itself as a consolidator in the industry in a highly fragmented market of numerous small providers with niche solutions.
After the integration of PATRONAS, which supplemented the platform with software for portfolio, order and risk management for the institutional securities business, niiio took another important step with the recently completed acquisition of FixHub. As a one-stop shop platform, niiio offers banks and financial service providers a holistic ecosystem in which all solutions are modular and easily compatible with one another. This opens up attractive opportunities for organic growth through up- and cross-selling.
As a top manager with 30 years of experience in the financial sector, Stefanie Salata (56) brings outstanding expertise in sales structures and strategy. As Managing Director at Deutsche Bank AG, she led large sales units in the private and corporate customer segment for many years. In addition, she was chairwoman of the management of the Berliner Bank and board member of a Volksbank. Today she contributes her many years of experience in setting up and managing customer-centric business structures and in corporate finance as a consultant and investor.
Philipp von Girsewald (51) is another expert who is particularly familiar with M&A strategies and the capital market. Among other things, as CEO, Mr. von Girsewald founded and built up the US business for FinTech Raisin/Deposit Solutions. In 20 years of banking experience, he was also responsible for global corporate M&A and regulatory strategy at Deutsche Bank AG for many years. Von Girsewald also has proven experience as a member of the supervisory board and advisory board.
In addition to the two newly appointed members, the niiio advisory board already includes Stefan Krause (chairman of the advisory board), Dr. Martin Deckert and Philip Laucks.
