N26 has announced two new additions to its C-suite beginning in October. Diana Styles will join the fintech startup as its Chief People Officer, while Adrienne Gormley will step into the Chief Operating Officer role. Both roles will be based in Berlin and report directly to N26 co-founder and CFO Maximilian Tayenthal.

The two execs will be part of an experienced executive leadership team and help guide the company’s global growth. N26 has grown quickly in the past few years and can now count over 5 million customers as of January 2020 and more than 1,500 employees.

Styles joins N26 from Adidas where she served as the SVP of Human Resources. Once she begins, she will command N26’s employee experience, leadership and organizational development, recruiting, employer brand, rewards, and people operations divisions.

As COO, Gormley will lead the company’s customer service, business operations, service experience, and workplace divisions. The former Dropbox executive will also scale and elevate N26’s internal capabilities and build a culture of customer-centricity and operational excellence across the organization.

In a press release, Tayenthal said, “It’s a great pleasure to welcome these two outstanding professionals to the N26 family. Both Diana and Adrienne are accomplished leaders, with proven track records in their respective fields and a true belief in the N26 vision to transform banking for the better. As we work towards our vision to serve 100 million customers globally, their skills and expertise will help us lay all-important foundations for us to achieve our ambitions, and I could not be happier to have them with us as we embark on the next leg of our growth journey.”

Styles stated, “I’m extremely excited to further strengthen the N26 culture and talent pool and build a world-class employee experience that matches the organization’s next chapter of transformational growth and change.”

While Gormley said, “I’m thrilled to be joining N26 at a time full of opportunity. With more people turning to digital banking than ever before, I believe that we can be the first to pioneer a truly world-class, fully-digital service experience in banking that can set the standard for the future of this industry.”
