Northmill appoints Daniel Roxö as new CRO
– With a mission to take a holistic approach to the growth journey
Stockholm 12 June 2019: The Swedish fintech company Northmill continues to attract and recruit top talent and appoints Daniel Roxö as new Chief Risk Officer, CRO. Daniel has broad experience from working with both business and risk in Sweden as well as the Nordic and Baltic regions, and he has held several leading roles within the banking and finance sector. With a deep knowledge of leading risk and compliance work in rapidly transforming growth companies, Daniel's mission will be to streamline and strengthen Northmill’s risk management business, ensuring its integration into the company's core business.
"We are both happy and proud that Daniel becomes part of our fantastic team, said Hikmet Ego, CEO, and Co-founder at Northmill. We are a company in a constant state of innovation and we develop products in an increasingly high pace. That means we have to grow in a responsible way. This is achieved by strengthening the organization with key competence contributing with know-how in the streamlining and development of control functions during the different stages of a growth company’s journey.”
Daniel spent over ten years at Swedbank where he held several senior management positions, with an emphasis on risk and compliance tasks but also within the sales organization. The finance market has been under constant change after the most recent financial crisis and due to regulation and tightened oversight. In that environment, most recently as CRO at Qliro, Daniel has led transformation work and established frameworks for risk management and internal control at the group, country, and entity levels.
"Northmill is in a very exciting phase with great opportunities and I feel inspired to be a part of their journey. To a large extent, my role will be to make use of all the existing competence in the company and work with the internal structure. We are doing this in order to create an effective organization with the ability to quickly adapt to new regulatory requirements as well as handle and control its risk in a relevant way ongoing. We will make risk management work an integral part of the business and as important as generating new business opportunities. Identifying the right level is crucial in order to grow the business in a controlled way, both in the long and short term, so that customers, society and companies are not affected in a negative way,” said Daniel Roxö.
Northmill has just launched Rebilla Reduce, the first service offered under the brand Rebilla. It is a customer-centric service that lowers the interest rate for everyone with an existing unsecured credit, partial payment or credit card bill. Northmill has high ambitions with Rebilla and it will continue to recruit top talent, mainly within IT, analytics and risk.
"Daniel is the type of person we have been looking for. He has a holistic approach, with great analytical capacity and strategic competence to identify opportunities and challenges across all functions in our company. We are sure that he will become a cornerstone of our onward journey, said Hikmet Ego.
