Michaela LeBlanc Weber has joined Mollie as our new Vice President of Partnerships, working to develop and maintain our strong relationships with local and global partners. Michaela will lead the development of our partner network to provide small- and medium-sized ecommerce businesses with access to cutting-edge SaaS-based tools and help them to compete with larger ecommerce competitors.
“We’re very pleased to welcome Michaela to our team. She is a seasoned expert in the fintech and payments space and is renowned for her ability to build long-standing and powerful partnerships,” says Ken Serdons, Mollie CCO. “Rather than building the entire ecosystem ourselves, we believe that smart partnerships are the way to eliminate friction and build great products. We have already built several strong partnerships, and Michaela is the ideal person to develop our relationships further and maintain our strong partner network.”
In recent months we’ve launched partnerships with Chargebee and Recharge to offer effortless subscriptions and payments and with ecommerce platforms WooCommerce and BigCommerce to provide their customers with an outstanding, localised ecommerce experience – from first touch to checkout. We’ve also recently announced our partnership with in3 to help meet the growing demand for BNPL methods from consumers and businesses and joined forces with Sendcloud to simplify paid returns.
Before joining Mollie, Michaela was Senior VP for Enterprise Partners at Worldpay from FIS, responsible for managing partner relationships globally. Before joining Worldpay in 2019, she was a member of the private equity practice at global management consulting firm Bain & Company, where her work focused on fintech and payments engagements.
“I’ve always followed Mollie with great admiration, seeing how the company has grown from one of the first fintech businesses in the Netherlands to a category leader across Europe,” says Michaela LeBlanc Weber. “I’m excited to be joining the company at this pivotal time to focus on building meaningful partnerships that simplify payments and help our customers grow.”
Michaela has an extensive background in financial services, having also worked as an equity research analyst at Goldman Sachs and holding client relationship roles at JP Morgan and Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
Michaela is a passionate advocate of women in tech and a former co-chair of the EMEA chapter of FIS Empower, the FIS women’s professional network. She also founded the Women’s Mentoring Network at Worldpay from FIS. At Mollie, Michaela will continue to promote gender inclusion and the empowerment of women in fintech.
