We believe it should be super easy for tech companies of all kinds to innovate around the money movement in their apps. That’s the type of innovation that Swan enables. We’re the engine behind fintech builders all across Europe.
One year after our series A, we are rapidly scaling. Swan is a strong contender in several countries, and we’re working hard to become a leader across the continent. To get there we rely on the collective intelligence of our people.
An international team of experts in banking, fraud, payments, product development, and more.
A serial entrepreneur and payments expert, Nicolas has already cofounded two successful startups, Limonetik and Antelop, both acquired in 2021. Swan is his biggest venture yet, and his ambition is to make it a major European Banking platform for years to come. Nicolas is an avid cyclist, and one of the things that keep him up at night is how to build a more ecologically responsible company.
Nicolas integrated 40+ payment methods at Limonetik and went on to manage payments and a B2C Finance Management app at Veolia. He leads daily operations with a sharp product vision and unbreakable positivity. Once upon a time, Nicolas Saison was actually CEO Nicolas Benady's apprentice. The two later joined forces as partners to make Swan take flight.
Mathieu pilots super complex projects with admirable tech prowess. Passionate and altruistic, he's as comfortable sharing at a conference as he is huddled around a beer. Ex-lead dev at Xebia, then technical director, Breton has already launched his first tech company, JS-Republic, and now brings his savoir faire to Swan.
Before joining Swan as Chief Compliance Officer, Stéphie was at Leetchi, European leader in online money pots (12 million+ users), where she created a powerful scoring engine and built a compliance department from the ground up. An expert in fraud, regulation, and client services, Stéphie is just the powerhouse Swan needed to help us earn our coveted e-money license, and to provide the most robust possible compliance processes.
David has always loved to support businesses to grow. This is why he started his career in management consulting at Roland Berger and later built up the sales function for an early-stage start-up. Within less than a year, he grew the revenue from zero to more than 1M€. The promise of embedded finance as a driver to business growth was his reason to join Swan and his day-to-day motivation for building Swan’s presence in the DACH region.
Florent has spent the past 12 years in the tech ecosystem. He’s an entrepreneur, ex-PrestaShop, and joined Stripe just as the company landed in Europe. He helped grow their business across the region, eventually becoming Head of Sales for France. Florent joined Swan in August 2021 as our Chief Commercial Officer. He's based in Barcelona where he enjoys clement weather, summer festivals and pan con tomate.
