European online payments platform provider Trustly has confirmed the promotion of Sara Berg as new Chief Operations Officer (COO).
Berg has served as Trustly’s Chief Legal Officer (CLO) since 2012, and will be tasked with leading the fast-growth fintech firm’s multi-market and multi-sector European operations, reporting to Trustly CEO Oscar Berglund.
Prior to joining Trustly, Berg was a Senior Associate at Stockholm law firm Advokat Delphi, specialising in business dispute and transformation.
Commenting on the appointment, CEO Berglund said: “I am very pleased to appoint Sara Berg to COO at Trustly.
“Since she started in 2012, she has backed up all parts of the company in a wide variety of subjects and has demonstrated strong leadership. I expect Sara in her new role to be able to benefit from her experience and knowledge of Trustly and our operational processes to help us grow efficiently. ”
Berg added: “I’m proud to have contributed to what Trustly is today and it feels very good to assume the new challenge as COO. In recent years, we have seen how interest in account-to-account payments only increases and Trustly is involved in this development by enabling customers to pay smoothly and securely, directly from bank accounts, and for e-commerce companies to increase its conversion.
“We are only at the beginning of this trip and I look forward to continuing working with the Trustly team to make our offer even better for both consumers and businesses.”
