Mollie is thrilled to announce our new Chief Legal Compliance Officer, Célie Verstelle. Célie has been promoted from the position of General Counsel and is now taking on a new compliance responsibility in her role. In addition to this new title and promotion, Célie has also become a member of our Management Board.

Our ambitious plans for the future make me eager to ensure we have the right legal and compliance framework in place to ensure we are successful. I’m looking forward to being part of the management board for what we hope will become the most loved payment service provider in the world.”
