Rogier Schoute has been appointed as Mollie’s Chief Product Officer

Mollie has appointed Rogier Schoute as Chief Product Officer. Schoute joins from Booking.com, where he led payments product development for the past two years, but first got to know Mollie during his time leading global partnerships for Klarna.

Schoute joined Klarna as a summer intern in 2010, when the company was five years old, employed roughly 120 people and was in the early stages of its international expansion. During his 8.5 years with Klarna, Schoute predominantly focused on payment product development, becoming Director of Core Payments in 2015, then VP Product Payments in 2016. Taking over Klarna’s global partnerships organisation in 2017, Schoute left in January 2019, having helped the company scale to more than US $29bn in gross merchandise volume and US $627 million in operating revenue.

“I first met Mollie in 2018 and was immediately impressed by the company’s team, culture and technology,” says Schoute. “Mollie’s products are beautifully crafted and elegantly simple, which is why both Mollie and its customers have grown so impressively during the past few years. But what’s really exciting, and why I’m thrilled to be joining, is Mollie’s potential. Its team, culture and technology is even stronger than it was three years ago. It has the backing of TCV and a refreshed board that’s ambitious to grow. And its deep, trusted relationships with 110,000+ merchants provides the perfect platform for product development with huge potential across a variety of innovative offerings.”

“We’re delighted to be welcoming Rogier to the team – he’s such an important hire and we couldn’t be happier to have him on board,” says Shane Happach, CEO, Mollie. “Our B-round was all about accelerating geographic growth and investing in product and engineering. In February we announced our expansion into the UK. In April, Rogier joins us to lead the development of the next generation of Mollie’s payments and financial services offering. Rogier’s unique experience in both enabling and managing rapid growth will be of critical importance to Mollie.”
