Loanboox is undergoing a significant change in leadership after more than six years of existence. As the pan-European financing platform announced on Wednesday, CEO Philippe Cayrol is leaving the company at the end of July. This was at his request, as the startup announced.
The Frenchman, who started three years ago to drive the internationalization of Loanboox, will be succeeded by Urs Meier. The latter is already a member of the management team. Dario Zogg completes the management as head of technology, and Dominique Hügli is responsible for products.
Another personnel development is likely to cause a stir in the fintech scene: Stefan Mühlemann, the founder of Loanboox, is stepping down as Chairman. This is for health reasons, as it was further stated. However, he will remain a member of the board of directors.
Felix Ehrat, a one-time partner at the large Zurich law firm Bär & Karrer and former chief lawyer of the pharmaceutical multinational Novartis, will now be Chairman. Oliver Lang, who has been a board member since 2022, will continue to serve as a board of directors member.
