Reinforcement of the management team lays foundation for next growth phase
Online Payment Platform, a specialized payment service provider for platforms and marketplaces, has appointed Jorrit Koop as CFO. Diederik Veenhoven strengthens the management team as CoS (Chief of Staff). Online Payment Platform is experiencing rapid growth. With the appointments of Koop and Veenhoven, the organization will be reinforced with two highly experienced leaders with whom the company can take the next step in realizing its international ambitions.
Jorrit Koop (35) has built an impressive international career. For the past four years he was CFO at the Allium Lending Group in London, a private equity-backed company that provides loans to consumers to make their homes more sustainable. At Allium Lending Group he used his expertise to restructure and professionalize the organization and for ultimately selling the company to a digital bank. Prior to this Koop was active in Latin America and Asia with his own FinTech company and was an investment banker at Morgan Stanley.
At Online Payment Platform, Koop is responsible for the financial management of the organization and for further streamlining related processes. He also has a strategic role in the international expansion of Online Payment Platform. Koop: “We have proprietary advanced technology that is now being used by leading European marketplaces and platforms. I look forward to making a contribution to help the organization grow into a global player.”
Diederik Veenhoven (35 years old) co-founded RD Recruitment and Interim Valley and was running these businesses for more than 9 years. The latter company specializes in the secondment of experts in the field of compliance, risk and data science. After selling his shares in these organizations, he was asked to fulfill the role of Chief of Staff at Online Payment Platform. Based on his knowledge and experience as an entrepreneur he will realize strategic projects and help optimize existing processes company-wide. Veenhoven's activities at Online Payment Platform include setting up an office in London and further developing the commercial proposition.
“Online Payment Platform focuses on a specific niche. This means there’s a high degree of specialization from which many (inter)national platforms and marketplaces can benefit. As Chief of Staff, I will help ensure that we’re ready to capitalize on the opportunities in this area with a strong organization with happy employees and high-quality processes and products.”
Richard Straver, founder of Online Payment Platform sees the appointments as an important turning point in the development of his company: “We have big ambitions that require different skills within the organization. With Jorrit and Diederik we have the right, experienced people on board to steer our growth and to further accelerate it. I’m really looking forward to working with them and the rest of the organization to make Online Payment Platform an international success.”
